Changes in Army policies on parenthood, pregnancy and postpartum makes it easier for P3T to help Soldier-mothers stay fit – United States Army

FORT SILL, Oklahoma (June 14, 2022) Reynolds Army Health Clinic is offering a physical training program for postpartum Soldiers aimed at getting new Soldier-moms back to duty more quickly.

The Pregnancy/Postpartum Physical Training program (P3T) is designed to provide safe, standardized physical training and education led by personnel trained in pregnancy and postpartum fitness, said Capt. Samantha Kinsman, P3T manager, United States Army Reserve. The program promotes readiness through health by maintaining fitness levels of pregnant Soldiers, and successfully integrating postpartum Soldiers back into unit physical readiness training.

The new parenthood policy is a big win for the Soldiers in P3T. Previously the Soldiers had 180 days from the day they leave the hospital to meet those height and weight requirements and the Army Combat Fitness Test, said Kinsman. P3T has been helping female Soldiers who are pregnant, and those who are postpartum, maintain a specific level of physical fitness so they can go back to their unit as soon as possible.

While the program itself isnt affected by recent Army policy changes, the time soldiers have to recover from pregnancy and return to physical readiness is.

Army Secretary Christine Wormuth issued Army Directive 2022-06 (Parenthood, Pregnancy and Postpartum) April 19, 2022. The directive is aimed at improving opportunities for Soldiers to advance their careers while providing the time and flexibility needed to care for growing families.

The biggest change to the new Army policy targeting parenthood issues is Soldier-moms have 365 days to meet their height and weight standards instead of 180 days after the birth of a child.

In general, having six months to meet height and weight requirements and then pass the ACFT after having a baby is not enough. It takes you nine months to grow a baby and I think every person should be afforded at least that much time to get back to some sort of normal and take care of a tiny human, said Kinsman. I think a year is fair. Six months was definitely pushing it. We could see it was definitely stressing some Soldiers out.

Fort Sill and Reynolds Army Health Clinic offer the P3T program for pregnant and postpartum Soldiers to safely do PT every morning from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. Participants meet Monday through Friday for workout sessions with education classes on Thursdays at the Graham Performance Enhancement Center.

Pregnant and postpartum Soldiers are in our program for 180 days and in that time we try to do everything we can for them, teach them good habits for the future, and help them maintain a certain level of fitness, said Sgt. 1st Class Anthony Dumond, P3T noncommissioned officer in charge, 3rd Battalion, 2nd Air Defense Artillery. The new policy gives them 365 days to meet the height and weight standards, which is a big change.

Based on several Army studies and current literature it was shown that after 15 months of pregnancy and postpartum, Soldiers who return to unit physical training without intervention demonstrate reduced fitness levels, increased body fat, and increases in injuries and illness rates. P3T offers specifically designed PT for these Soldiers to help them maintain overall health and well-being, said Kinsman.

We try to strengthen the muscles especially those muscle groups that are going to be used during delivery. We focus on things that are going to help their bodies during the adjustment that they make, such as keeping their posture good and just maintaining, said Kinsman.

In addition to physical training, the program offers new parents resources like baby supplies including, diapers, formula and clothing. There is also a swap meet in the works for the participants so they can exchange baby items and it gives them an informal event to socialize, she said.

We bring in a lot of really cool resources in the community, said Kinsman. We do a lot with the New Parent Support program and we bring in chiropractors and doulas to show them what local resources are available. Its giving them the link so they know where to go if they have issues.

Cardiac rehabilitation can help stroke survivors reduce risk of death within a year by 76%, study shows – Diabetes.co.uk

A supervised exercise programme can help people who have survived a serious stroke significantly cut their chances of dying within 12 months, researchers have found.

The American study saw 246 people complete a programme of exercise, therapy and medical follow-up.

The results have led the research team to call for stroke rehabilitation to be considered in the same way cardiac rehabilitation is.

Dr Sara Cuccurullo, a Co-Principal Investigator of the study, said: After a stroke, sometimes family members are cautious. Dont get up, you might fall. Many caregivers of stroke survivors discourage stroke patients from being active and mobile.

But we are showing that even survivors of serious stroke can exercise safely in a supervised program and they can benefit enormously.

The study involved participants closely matched in terms of gender, race, type of stroke and medical complexity, as stroke can vary significantly from one person to another.

From a group of 449 participants, 246 completed the cardiac rehabilitation programme and from this group, four people died within 12 months of their stroke. From the group which did not participate in the programme, 14 patients died.

The latest research from the Stroke-HEARTTMTrials at Hackensack Meridian JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute also show the programme participants saw a significant increase 78% in their cardiovascular capacity. Improvements were also seen in mobility, self-care, and communication/cognition.

Talya Fleming, Co-Principal Investigator of the study, said: Stroke survivors deserve the same benefits that patients with cardiac disease receive. As a nation, we need to do more to help patients with stroke improve their lives to improve both their longevity and quality of life.

We should enable stroke survivors to function in the community at the highest level possible.

The team said the programme can make a real difference in participants recovery, saying: Exercise has significant and multiple benefits associated with it, including promoting overall improvement in circulation, especially promoting enhanced circulation to the brain.

The study has been published in the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases.

The Realistic Plan That Helped This Guy Lose 77 Pounds and Get Shredded – Men’s Health

Like millions of other people around the world, Carlos Oliveira was no stranger to weight gain and low levels of activity during the pandemic. After joining a gym and hiring a trainer to get back in shape, Oliveira shared the surprisingly simple steps that helped him lose more than 70 pounds and get into the best shape of his life.

During the second lockdown in the UK, I was feeling really low: Id been drinking too much, not watching what I ate, and generally sitting around the house. Id had a personal trainer before, but at that point itd been about two years since Id really been in the gym. My weight had crept up from 95 kg (209 pounds) to more than 115 kg (253 pounds). My clothes no longer fit and I felt lethargic, totally low-energy.

As someone who has always struggled with my weight, I felt like Id worked really hard to get to where I could feel relatively good about myself, only to see it all slip away. I was snappy with my wife and kids and I can see now that it was really because I just felt frustrated and unhappy with myself.

I felt like I needed something to kick-start me again and provide some accountability for what I was doing to my body. A friend of mine had been through the Ultimate Performance process a couple of years previously and so I reached out to her to ask if she would recommend it. I got a resounding yes, so I signed up with Ultimate Performances Manchester gym.

Pre-transformation, I actually dont think my diet was terrible. Breakfast would be a bowl of cereal with milk and a couple of pieces of toast with peanut butter. Then for lunch, Id have something like a tuna wrap, and dinner would have been whatever my wife was making for the kidspasta, fish pie, lasagne, all pretty hearty (and carby) stuff. The big difference is that with dinner I would probably have had a couple of glasses of red wine with maybe a large glass of whisky in the evening.

During the program, I got very clear guidance on revamping my diet, with calorie and calorie and macro targets for training and non-training days. The biggest change was really reducing carb intake and ramping up the protein. Eggs, chicken, and tuna were pretty much on the menu every day in order to hit my protein target of 175g per day.

So Id start the day with greek yogurt with berries and honey, followed by a mid-morning bagel with three scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Id have chicken stir fry for lunch. For dinner, I had a meal prep service that offered a range of main meals around the 500 kcal mark and all with fairly balanced macros e.g. (50g carb / 20g fat / 30g protein). And if I wanted to snack, Id have something high in protein, like cooked chicken pieces, low-fat cheese, or a tin of tuna.

I trained at UP three times a week. The training was generally strength-based, working my full body in each session. Outside of UP, I was back to playing football a couple of times a week post-lockdown and also trying to get a ride in each week on my turbo trainer over the winter.

I got used to some new moves in the gym, too. Pendulum squats really challenged me, with a combination of strength and endurance requirements that make them feel pretty rough. Walking lunges go in that bracket too. Chin-ups are also tough, but beneficial; I struggled to do three reps when I first started, and by the end was able to do weighted sets and really saw the benefits in the definition of my back.

I think the biggest thing I learned in the gym was quality over quantity. We would do six or seven exercises, with three sets of each in the eight to ten rep range. He really focused on getting the correct form for each movement and ensuring that every rep counted.

From a food perspective, it was really just about keeping things simple and making sure I was hitting my macros. I pretty much gave up alcohol entirely over the transformation and generally didnt go down the "cheat meal route. Even if I was eating out I would try to make the best choice I could.

Over eight months, from September 2021 to April 2022, I lost 35 kg (77 pounds), getting down to the 83 kg (182 pounds) mark. My body fat dropped from around 40 percent at the beginning to nine percent. Its hard to know just how much muscle I gained, since some of it was already there, just hidden by fat.

This transformation has definitely been about more than the physical benefits. Ive had to throw away my entire wardrobe. I bought new clothes that I previously would never have thought Id be able to fit into. Whilst its not great for the wallet, the boost to my confidence has been huge.

Being happier with myself definitely has a big impact on both my work and home life and my general energy levels are so much higher.

My family and close friends knew that I was training, and definitely noticed and commented as they saw the weight begin to come off. However, I think everyone was shocked when I shared the photos from my shoot on Instagramto be honest, I was pretty shocked myself when I saw them! When you are so focused on the path in front of you and taking those small steps, you can really lose track of just how far youve traveled. Thats one good reason to take pictures.

I genuinely feel like the hard work really starts here. My biggest goal right now is to keep my weight stable. I'm into a solid routine of self-training three times a week. Once I feel established and stable in that, Id like to start looking at building more muscle with a focus on my arms.

I think success in a transformation like this comes down to being honest with yourself about whether this is something you really want. You have to want it. If you do, and you are willing to commit to the process and follow the program, then you will astonish yourself with what you can achieve. As told to Jesse Hicks

Fairmont State and Wheeling University establish partnership to impact health care – The Steubenville Herald-Star

WHEELING Representatives from Wheeling University and Fairmont State University signed an articulation agreement Monday that establishes a partnership between the institutions, which aims to produce more quality health care professionals to serve patients in West Virginia and across the country.

This partnership will allow eligible students from Fairmont State University to make a seamless transition each year into Wheeling Universitys doctorate of physical therapy program, said Ginny R. Favede, president of Wheeling University. More importantly, by producing well trained physical therapists, there will be more health care professionals grounded in our mission to serve others in Appalachia and in our region.

The agreement between the institutions will allow for up to three students per year from Fairmont States exercise science program to be accepted into Wheeling Universitys doctor of physical therapy program, pending qualifications and academic requirements.

This agreement will help bring more graduates from West Virginia colleges and universities into the universitys DPT program, according to Alison Kreger, director of Wheelings doctor of physical therapy program. By partnering, Wheeling and Fairmont will help both institutions facilitate the training of physical therapy professionals who can provide high quality patient care.

The Fairmont State exercise science program integrates the theories and practicalities of exercise physiology in preparing graduates for a career in the field of health and fitness, while providing the foundation required for the successful application into several professional pathways, including physical therapy.

We are grateful for the efforts from both institutions that have brought this partnership to fruition, said Jan Kiger, chair of the Fairmont State health and human performance department. Were excited to work together to engage our students in further professional degree programs, physical therapy in particular, which is a highly sought-after degree.

Wheeling Universitys DPT program emphasizes a whole person approach to the investigation of clinical issues using a problem-based Learning format.

This partnership will allow Fairmont State Exercise Science majors to move forward in their careers by easing the transition into a professional degree pathway, said Amanda Metcalf, dean of Fairmont States College of Education, Health and Human Performance. Through this partnership we are not only building a relationship that will benefit our students, but one that will benefit the community and local workforce. We are thrilled our students will have the opportunity to continue their educational journey and positively impact health care settings.

Diana Phillips, Fairmont States vice president of academic affairs and provost, echoed Metcalfs comments.

At Fairmont State University we center student success at the heart of everything we do. Engaging in this partnership with Wheeling University allows us to continue providing a transformative impact to our students, while also strengthening health care throughout our region and beyond, she said.
