Sport medicine and safety at work
As humans become more and more sedentary, physical capacities also become lost along with aerobic fitness, muscular strength, coordination, and action-reaction time. This situation can lead to not only absence from work (back pain is the most common reason in European Union (EU), but especially, workplace accidents. In this article, we want to combine our experience with exercise physiology and physical capacities with our medical work in a critical environment. We tested over ten years, the fitness profile of 1200 Italian Alpine Soldiers, and gave them a scientific training program. We obtained a trained and homogeneous team (homogeneous, in terms of aerobic and anaerobic fitness). Here, we detail changes to aerobic and anaerobic fitness resulting because of soldiers’ participation in a training program. We consider this method necessary for safe work in a critical environment.
