Jogging is a common aerobic exercise people do in daily life.
It can be a complete workout itself or serves to prepare the body for an intense workout and other physical activities.
Previous research has shown that jogging provides many health benefits.
It can help people lose weight, improve bone health, grow muscles, improve heart health, reduce stress, boost the respiratory system, prevent infections and achieve healthy aging.
However, many people cannot get the best results from jogging or even get injured.
Researchers suggest that it is important to do jogging correctly to benefit most from the wonderful exercise.
Here are six things every jogger can do:
Have a realistic goal
Setting a realistic, achievable goal can give you the motivation you need to get started and keep doing jogging.
If you want to lose weight, you can set a goal of losing 1 kg every month by running, for example.
When you start running, you need to start from small, and then gradually increase the intensity or distance.
Choose the right shoes
When choosing running shoes, it is important to get advice and feedback from a specialist.
This can make a big difference when it comes to preventing injuries.
People tend to buy expensive shoes for better results. But the most expensive shoes might not be the best. You need to make sure your shoes are comfortable.
Improve your running skills
Everyone has their own way in jogging, but it is important to improve your running skills so you can do it more efficiently.
For example, you may need to find the best way to place your feet and arms during running and how to breathe effectively.
It is good to have a routine for your jogging. But you don’t need to be too rigid. Try to change a bit in your jogging time, distance, location, and so on.
Maybe you can have better performance than you thought.
Find a jogging partner
Jogging with others is a great way to be social and have fun. You may find it is easier to do it when somebody does it with you.
You can avoid loneliness and have a better mood in your jogging. This can increase the health benefits of the exercise.
Using smart tech to improve your jogging
You can use your fitness tracker, smartwatch, or just smartphone to monitor your exercise and motive you.
These devices can collect health data during and after jogging and help you make a better exercise plan.
