Running is a form of exercise where your primary physical action is moving at a brisk rate of speed on foot. Its origins began when early humans did this as a form of hunting for long distances. It later was introduced as a sport in ancient sporting events and religious festivals.

Most people jog to either relieve stress, to get the multiple health benefits you get from jogging or to burn calories. It also makes your resting heart rate and blood pressure lower, so it can be used to make those levels lower. The relationship between jogging and low cholesterol is also proven. Jogging is incredibly useful and it helps people with losing weight.

What is muscle endurance and muscle strength?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Muscle strength is the ability to exert force on an object or through movement with the muscles. The ability to build muscular strength is largely due to genetics but age, sex, work ethic, and overall health have an impact as well. The main way to determine someone's muscular strength is through the use of an one repetition exercise at maximum weight. Take note that limb length can play a part in strength. For instance, someone with shorter arms will have an easier time bench pressing than someone with longer arms.

Muscle endurance is the ability to exert a force repetitively or over an extended period of time. Training for endurance can have a negative impact on muscle strength unless some sort of resistance training is also included. To increase endurance one may increase the amount of repetitions or increase the amount of time of the exercise. A dramatic jump in repetitions can have more of an impact on strength rather than endurance and can increase chance of injury. Every jump in time spent training should be low enough to allow the body to adjust.

What is the best exercise- swimming or jogging?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It depends on what you're looking to accomplish. Jogging will help you lose fat faster and it is easier for most people to stay aerobic longer jogging that swimming. Jogging can be done pretty much any place and any time, making it more accessible than swimming.

If done properly, swimming can quickly buildaerobic capacity

and fitness. Swimming is low impact, and as such is good for people with joint and stress (body not mental) issues. It works a higher percentage of the body's muscles and creates good muscle tone and definition. Other than accessibility, the only draw back to swimming is the large number of people who come to the pool, swim two lengths then sit for 5 minutes, and repeat for 45 minutes. They leave thinking they've done something, but in reality have gotten virtually no benefit (except a nice bath) out of their workout time.


Try to mix up swimming and jogging to get all the benefits

Does running on treadmill make you loose your figure?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Well, if you're a woman, trying to lose weight, some of that weight will come off your breasts and hips. Can't be helped.

But there's nothing that makes the treadmill particularly bad. Whatever you'd done to lose that weight apart from liposuction would have had the same impact on your figure.

Which is a good dress for jogging?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

You want clothing that is slightly cool relative to the weather, since you should be generating a fair amount of body heat as you exercise. Jogging suits work well, although any loose-fitting cotton clothing such as a loose T-shirt and running shorts also works.

Basically, you want to be comfortable and have enough freedom of movement to actually jog.

Do you lose more weight jogging with a bin bag under your shirt?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Kinda-sorta.

The bin bag will make you sweat more, so you'll lose more weight by losing more fluid(=water) from your body.

Trouble is, once done with your run you'll get thirsty. And when you drink you'll put that extra weight lost by the bin bag right back on.

How do you begin a jogging schedule?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

== First you have to know if you prefer to jog alone or prefer a friend with you. Then you have to decide if you enjoy a morning, afternoon or early evening jog and be sure your friend can fit the time into their schedule. By having a friend jog with you it forces you not to miss one day without jogging. I love to jog on the beach and smell the salt air, while others enjoy joking through parks, by rivers or through woods. It's best to have a friend go along to be safe. NEVER wear head phones while joking and always be aware of what and who is around you. If you wear head phones you can't hear anyone coming up behind you whether they intend on hurting you or not. Often when I jog I take my dogs, but on occasion will jog with a friend. At the end of the jog we always looked forward to going to an nice outdoor cafe for a cool green tea drink and just gabbing. I have since come to the conclusion that jogging isn't the best exercise and the body weight on the legs and feet can do more injury than harm, so I have decided to go back to swimming. When I use to go swimming I had better muscle tone and kept my weight down, while keeping my heart rate up. Walk before you run. My track coach told me when I asked him on how to run long distances, he suggested to take it slow. Walk 50 steps, run 50 steps for a determined distance. The next time out, walk 49 steps run 51 steps. The next time walk 48, run 52. You get the picture. I was running continously in about 20 days. Just remember to stretch before you begin any excercise for at least 5 minutes, and the same afterwards until you get used to it. Drink plenty of water to hydrate yourself and this will stop muscle cramps that running sometimes cause. Make sure you wear the proper shoes, with proper arch support as well. Biking is better, it doesnt do the harmful impact that running does. Running is hard on the joints, especially the knees, hip joints and ankles. Wear non constricting clothes and be prepared for blisters the first few times out. Good luck on your new endeavor!

No, jogging, working, or any kind of normal exercise activities do not cause miscarriages in normal pregnancy. Neither does moderly heavy lifting. Exercise is good for pregnant women, when tailored to the point in the term and proper clothing and support is used.
