Astronauts aboard the ISS have to do intense daily exercises.


Funnily enough, living up in space isn’t good for the human body.

One of the most significant factors is the near-absence of gravity, which can cause an astronaut’s bones to lose density and make their muscles slowly fade away.

This is where exercise comes into play, as this can help prevent these issues.\

It is always intriguing to learn how astronauts live in space, what they do in zero gravity and how it affects their daily activities. If you have ever wondered how astronauts exercise in space, this video posted by Samantha Cristoforetti, a European Space Agency astronaut living at the International Space Station (ISS), is for you.

The Italian took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a video showing her exercising and lifting weights at the ISS. She showed a machine called the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device that allows astronauts to do muscle-strengthening workouts. “Yes, we can do weightlifting in weightlessness,” she says in the video.
