Show Notes

Lucky for some, unlucky for others we're back for episode 13 of The Better Ageing Podcast!

In this episode we're discussing the easing back of coronavirus restrictions in Australia and in particular how to return to exercise safely, and maintaining new found hygiene and physical distancing behaviours.

Jason explains how to manage returning to exercise or activity that you may have altered or stopped due to coronavirus, with a focus on managing your load to prevent injury, before sharing his tips on ensuring you have good posture given you might have increased your amount of sitting recently. Jane then discusses the importance of keeping up the habits you've learnt during isolation to ensure you minimise the risk of spreading infection and avoiding higher risk situations.

As this has been recorded from three separate locations using Zoom, rather than our traditional podcast studio, you may notice different audio quality, and the occasional internet delay (read: Jason's internet), so please bear with us!
