But in these trying times, exercise may play a big part in a healthy immune system, a new study found.
The new analysis, published in the journal Exercise Immunology Review, looked at four decades of research on the connection between exercise and immune system function.
Most have found that moderate-intensity exercise is good for the immune system, but the effects of intense exercise have been debated.
Some researchers theorize that working out hard suppresses the immune system, creating an “open window” when the risk of infection is actually higher for hours or even days after training.
Exercise helps in the short-term by boosting a person’s immune system—something everyone should be concerned about as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on—and staying consistent with a workout regimen helps a healthy immune system stay in better shape over time.
