Remedial gymnastics for people with obesity of I and II degrees

Remedial gymnastics helps with all forms and degrees of obesity. It is especially effective for alimentary obesity in the initial stages (I-II degrees), when the functions of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems are not yet disturbed or the disturbances are insignificant. Therefore, although physical activity should be dosed, individually selected and introduced gradually, there are no special restrictions.

There is no need to strive for rapid weight loss – this practice not only does not give a lasting result, but also often leads to even more weight gain when you stop exercising. The main thing is remedial gymnastics – exercises for obesity must be performed correctly. Slow weight loss enables all organs and systems of the body to get used to a new lifestyle and to a “new” weight. Weight loss recommendations may vary depending on the degree of obesity. For people of young and mature age, it is considered rational to reduce weight by 4-5 kg ​​per month, for older people – by 2-3 kg. Further, therapeutic exercises for obesity will be considered in more detail.
