The astronaut workout

If WFH gave you a Zoom derriere, it’s time for an out-of-this-world workout.

Jessica Meir, a scientist, astronaut and flight engineer on the International Space Station, says long hours of sitting are similar to floating in space. Meir was in space for 205 days in 2019-2020 and knows exercise prevents bone and muscle loss.  She suggests Earthlings can similarly benefit from doing space conditioning exercises or HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts. 

Basically, it means exercising an hour a day by using a treadmill or lifting weights – anything to get the blood pumping can make all the difference in the world.
