Phil Skiba on exercise and health during COVID-19 crisis
The next few special episodes of the podcast will break away from the normal regularity as we capture, produce and air some relevant content to the COVID-19 crisis.
In today’s special episode I talk to Dr Phil Skiba, Director of Sports Medicine for the Advocate Aurora Medical Group in Chicago, one of the largest in the United States and one of sharpest people I know – a true polymath, about the current crisis, his observations, his advice about us for general health, staying physically fit and training and more broadly our responsibilities to ourselves, each other and why and how this situation arose and what this all might mean.
The warning signs of COVID-19 and health service overwhelm
Making excuses for ourselves…
Our individual and societal responsibilities
Paying attention to how you are feeling
Do the neck check!
Heart disease and cancer kill way more people than COVID-19 and are preventable and treatable with exercise
No more powerful medicine than exercise
Any organism has a carrying capacity
We are in this together
Bettering yourself through education
Popping to the shop in Africa
Fighting this war from the coach, binging Netflix and don’t do anything stupid!
