As you can see todays topic will be the question of „Is it really useful to run for loosing weight“?
This question is not easy to answer because it depends on the program youre doing or if you have any health problems. So lets see if we can answer it more specifically!
If youre completely healthy and you want to go jogging in the morning to burn some extra calories, it should be fine to do so but it wont be really efficient. The reason for that is because your body needs to be empty of any glycemic energy which are stored in your muscles. If you start running in the morning to loose weight, than you would need to run 30 minutes atleast before your body starts of using fat cells. This is why starting a diet first would help loosing weight either than running.
The second point is, if your joints have any problems already, it will get worse if you start jogging. Many joint problems in the knees appear because of excessive jogging or running. Than there is the platform where you start running. If its just asphalt with the wrong shoes, you might get more damage in your knees than you like so be sure to use running shoes or a softer ground.
Besides the genetic and your eating aspects, its alright to say that jogging in the morning can help you to loose weight but heres a thing. If you would rather start using weightlifting to loose weight, you would be way more efficient! If you built muscle over time, your body will consume constantly energy even if you just lay or sit down and do nothing! This is great for men and woman.
If you want to loose weight really with running and not by weight lifting, than i would tell you to do a HIIT (High – Intense – Interval – Training)
This sort of training is as the name says „High intense“.This means the time you would jog (30 minutes or an hour) would be reduced to 15 minutes while the intensity gets doubled.
For a training like this you should start slow and not overdo it because otherwise your heart will get a lot of stress.
Heres how a jogging HIIT is done:
You start to slowly jog for 15 seconds and the other 15 seconds you start to run with full power as fast as you can. After these 15 seconds you wont stop but just begin to jog slowly again and after that, youll run again 15 seconds as fast as you possibly can. This will be repeated until the 10 minute or 15 minute mark is reached. If 15 seconds is too much for most beginners, you can jog 30 seconds and sprint 15 seconds, just to get more breath.
If you do this, your body will burn energy as well after your workout like weight lifting but not because you gained muscles, but because it uses a lot more energy than simply jogging.
You shouldnt do this training daily, specially as a beginner! Do it 3 times a week and start with 2 times and begin by warming up. The first couple times will be hell because your system needs to accept it but it will be worth it if you do it.
Thats it for today and thank you for reading.
