HIV/AIDS And Exercise

Next » « Previous


AIDS health professionals emphasize a combination of moderate but regular aerobic exercise and weight-training as a basic fitness program. A regular cardiovascular workout has a direct impact on the immune system. The goal should be to maintain a steady level of exercise that doesn't tax the body.

AIDS experts often recommend swimming as the best exercise for someone who is HIV positive because it includes a combination workout. It strengthens the muscles and stimulates the cardiovascular system.

Be cautious when engaging in high-contact sports because of the potential of transmission of HIV through breaks in the skin or flowing cuts.
