PRACTICE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES OF A MAN WITH POSITIVE RESULT FROM COVID 19
Practicing physical activity is essential for physical and mental health. In addition, this behavior can be a great way to increase immunity, especially in times of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). In this sense, this study aimed to analyze the practice of physical activities performed by a man with a positive result of COVID-19 during his period of social isolation, as well as his perceptions and difficulties about this practice. Qualitative case study carried out with a man from the northwest region of the state of Rio Grande do Sul with a positive diagnosis of COVID 19. For this, a questionnaire with open / closed questions was used as an instrument for data collection, the same was applied through the whatsapp and interpreted by content analysis. The participant reported that while in social isolation he practiced physical activities with his own body weight and with tools, in addition to abdominals. He performed them in his own room due to social isolation and had no symptoms during practice. In addition, he reported that the greatest difficulty was performing physical activities alone, without company, as usual in the weight training gym. Even in the face of such a singular moment, it is observed that the study participant followed an exercise routine, which can be explained by the adherence to the physical training that he has, and may have benefited in the recovery of the clinical condition during the diagnosis of Covid 19.
