WEL. Secrets for Wearing a Face Mask during your Workouts

Are you wearing a mask at the gym during your workouts? Is it effecting your results or energy levels?

Gyms and fitness studios are now starting to re-open as the stay-at-home rules begin to ease throughout some states in the U.S. Gym goers are wondering if it is safe to return to their workout facility and what precautions will be in place for everyone to remain safe. Policies will most likely vary throughout the country in gyms. The big question is, “Should I wear a face mask when I workout ?” Most people can perform their regular workouts while wearing a face covering. It is essential to remind exercise enthusiasts to monitor how they feel during the workout and to take particular notice if they feel dizzy, lightheaded, or short of breath. If so, slow down exercise intensity or stop exercising. Individuals with a pre-existing respiratory or cardiovascular condition are encouraged to take caution when exercising with a face mask.

Also, feeling dizzy after a workout may indicate that a person has low blood pressure. Medical attention is necessary if this condition persists.
