    Hello everyone

    My friend said since getting Covid his blood oxygen level (%) levels have been lower and sometimes dip too low.

    Do you know of any type of training that can increase blood oxygen level?

    Thanks

    Hi Jeremy!

    There are different mechanisms why boold oxygen levels can be low. You can’t really train to get higher sO2 level for when you are ill. But the best way to prevent a severe covid disease, is to be fit and healthy. And of course to be vaccinated three times! So get you booster shot and train your aerobic system.

    stay healthy!
