What are the health benefits of running? What do we need to pay attention to when running?
Nowadays, life is getting better and better, and people's living standards are getting higher and higher. The better the life, the more need a healthy body. People practice yoga, Tai Chi, running and other sports to keep their bodies healthy. And running is a sport generally accepted by the public, so what benefits can running bring us? What should I pay attention to when running?
First, let’s take a look at the benefits of running
1. Enhance physical fitness
Nowadays, not only middle-aged and elderly people, but also more and more young people are getting worse and worse. It is not difficult to improve your health. If you insist on running for 50 minutes a day, you can improve our immunity, strengthen our physical fitness, and your entire mental state will change.
2. Running makes you happy
Why are so many people obsessed with running? That's because running brings people positive emotions. Through running, bad emotions such as daily worries, work chores and life pressure can be digested and transformed into motivation, so that you have a good attitude.
3. Improve immunity
When the temperature drops every season, many people get flu. But some people never get sick. This is because they are very resistant. If our own resistance is weak, then we can really try running. Running will increase our resistance and make us less likely to get sick. We can also avoid some problems caused by long-term sitting or lack of exercise, such as lower back and leg pain and spinal pain.
What issues should be paid attention to when running?
1. Stretch before running
Speaking of other exercise methods, everyone may have warm-up awareness, but when running, they usually ignore the role of warm-up, especially stretching before running. Imagine the possibility of injury when the body is stiff. Frequently used stretching methods include lunge stretching and side pressing. Of course, when stretching, you must pay special attention to the extension of the calf and thigh, and stretching backward is also essential.
2. It is best to wear sportswear
The functions of sportswear include windproof, waterproof, warmth, breathability, quick-drying and good elasticity. When we do fitness exercises, our metabolism will increase, blood flow will be faster than usual, and muscles will contract during exercise. At this time, wearing quick-drying sportswear can quickly help you wick away sweat. When you are running in a cotton T-shirt, after running, the T-shirt will be soaked and not easy to dry, which can easily lead to a cold, so you must wear sportswear for exercise.
2. Pay attention to hydration
In summer, our body consumes a lot of water. Due to the hot weather, our body sweats a lot, leading to severe water loss. Therefore, you must pay special attention to hydration during exercise. If it is a long-distance exercise, you must add water every 20 to 30 minutes. Do not add too much water and follow a small amount.
3. Running time
Running time control is also a very important part, especially for friends who want to lose weight. The running time cannot be too short, the effect will be poor, but the running time should not be too long, because the body cannot bear it. Because after 30 minutes of jogging, it starts to consume calories in the body, that is, it just starts to burn body fat. For running time, you can give yourself a running plan.
The effect of running on health is really not small. It can not only enhance physical fitness, but also build a perfect body shape. If you want to have a good body, then running is indispensable!
