How is running good for women's health?

Running is undoubtedly the best exercise for every gender and age group. Moreover, it doesn’t hole your pocket as you don’t have to buy expensive equipment to kick this highly beneficial and full-body work out off. You don’t have to master anything new. Simply, get out there and run. You just need a pair of quality shoes and a sports bra because no other exercise complements running for its ability to soak that sports bra. Read on to know my opinion about running for women:

Easy Yet Beneficial

Gyming, the stair-stepper, push-ups or biking may make you work hard but running will make the most part of your calories its prey. A recent study was done at Medical College of Wisconsin and the VA Medical Center, the treadmill (used at a ‘hard’ exertion level) burnt an average of 705-865 calories in an hour. On the other hand, the stair-stepper gave the figure of (637-746), bike (498-604), rower (606-739, and so on.

Happy Heart

Running helps you keep your heart always smiling as it proves to be a great workout for this muscle. When your feet hit their stride, they clamp blood toward your heart, which in turn forces it to pump it back. The faster your pace is the harder your heart works and stronger it becomes.

Best for Knees

Quite opposite to your mom’s opinion, running will wreck your joints, it will rather empower them. It happens due to arthritis and Osteoarthritis is the most common type of it. So, Osteoarthritis occurs when joint-cushioning cartilage faces a breakdown. Excessive body weight is the major factor behind Osteoarthritis after age. A recently done survey by the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey states, obese females have about four times the risk of knee osteoarthritis than non-obese ones. Running significantly brings down the risk of osteoarthritis because runners are lighter as compared to the sedentary population.

Moreover, the benefits still do not end here. Running bolsters your cartilage by boosting the oxygen flow and flushing out toxins as well as strengthening the ligaments around your joints. Hitting the trail also gives your bones a boost and lessen the chances of osteoporosis.

Be Careful: Though, it’s very necessary to handle all injuries well which occur due to running. Also, replace your shoes often and maintain a steady pace while running. Remember, running helps build your joints up, not pull them down.

Show the Door to Stress

The best runners in the world claim, “the tension in the different part of my body and brain starts losing up its grip and I can think even more clearly.”

Easy but Fetch You Maximum Results

You don’t have to do much, simply wear those running shoes and start cruising. Running is the only exercise which benefits your head to toe muscles. This is the time to shed the extra fat that you have gained over the period. Running will also keep your heart bumping and help it have reduced threats of any emergency.

A stretch of about two to three kilometers every day will turn your skin into a glowing one because constantly running means heat generation, and thus your body starts sweating, which results in opening up of pores. This process allows all your toxins and dirt in the skin come out through the salty water and your skin starts shining.
