Official Title
Investigation Of The Effectiveness Of Video-Based Exercise Program Applied To Adult Individuals Who Experience Social Isolation At Houses Due To The Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Brief Summary

In December 2019, new coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) broke out in Wuhan (Hubei, China), and it spread rapidly from one city to the whole country in just 30 days, and then worldwide cases began to appear. All the countries of the world take some precautions to prevent the spread of this epidemic disease, which WHO declared as "pandemic". Apart from compulsory situations, non-home and social isolation are the primary measures. However, not leaving the house and social isolation brings with it the restriction of physical activity. According to World Health Organization (WHO), in order to obtain health benefits, adult individuals between the ages of 18-64 should perform at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week (30 minutes a day for 5 days a week) or intensive physical activity for at least 75 minutes a week. For additional health benefits, adults should increase their moderate-intensity physical activities to at least 300 minutes a week or equivalent. Physical activity; It is directly related to the prevention of chronic diseases, increasing fitness, strengthening the muscles and increasing the quality of life. It is reported that one of the ten main risk factors in terms of mortality in the world is insufficient physical activity. The effects of social isolation are related to physical inactivity, smoking and the possibility of having both health risk behaviors together. Practical and innovative interventions are needed to reduce physical performance and decrease in muscle mass, strength and physical performance in the aging population. Considering today's conditions and current COVID-19 Pandemic, technology-supported exercise programs are effective in increasing the motivation for physical activity. The purpose of this study; In order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, social isolation, which is one of the measures taken in our country, is to evaluate the physical activity level of adults and to investigate the effectiveness of home exercises. It is aimed to use a model based on the video supported by a home-based exercise program.

Behavioral: Video based exercise
Individuals (n = 64) to be included in the study group will be grouped according to the levels of physical activity (low, medium, high level) determined by the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. An exercise program will be created for each group based on physical activity levels and videos of these exercise programs will be prepared. The videos will be scheduled for 20 minutes. Individuals will be asked to apply for these programs with video for 20 minutes every day for 6 weeks. Exercise programs will start with pulmonary exercises and warm-up exercises to prepare for exercise. The exercise program will end with cool down exercises. The exercise protocol will be determined as a combination of aerobic and strengthening exercises.
