Jogging, as a sport, is common in our life. Many people like jogging. What are the benefits of proper jogging for our health?
Research shows that easy jogging can enhance the respiratory function, increase the vital capacity, and improve the ventilation and ventilation capacity. The oxygen supplied by jogging can be 8-12 times more than that by sitting still. Oxygen is essential to maintain life activities, and the ability to absorb oxygen directly affects the cardiopulmonary function. In general, the elderly have a low ability to absorb oxygen, and exercise can improve their ability to absorb oxygen.
The maximum oxygen intake of the elderly who practice jogging is not only significantly higher than that of the elderly who do not exercise, but also higher than that of the elderly who participate in general exercise. Jogging can strengthen and thicken the myocardium, which can exercise and protect the heart. The size and function of the heart of the elderly who have been engaged in jogging for many years are no different from those of the 20-year-old who do not participate in exercise. This is because long-term exercise has improved the nutrition of the myocardium, developed the myocardium and improved the function.
Enhance muscle and muscle endurance. Regular and uninterrupted jogging can enhance motivation and muscle endurance. Motivation and muscle endurance are our ability to maintain work and cope with emergencies at ordinary times. Jogging is one of the best choices.
Reduce psychological pressure. In a highly competitive environment, if we do not eliminate tension, mental and psychological pressure, we will always be at a disadvantage. Moderate jogging will reduce the psychological burden and maintain a good physical and mental state.
Improve the quality of life. Health is the foundation of everything. The primary condition for improving the quality of life is to have a healthy body, and regular jogging is the only way to promote physical health.
Reduce joint burden: the nutrients of articular cartilage mainly come from the synovial fluid produced by the cells in the upper layer of cartilage. Jogging exercise helps to supply sufficient joint synovial fluid for knee, hip and other joints and maintain joint health. In addition, regular running can strengthen muscle tissue, thus supporting joints and reducing joint burden.
Prevent constipation. Jogging exercise can stimulate the intestinal digestive system and prevent constipation. Lack of exercise is an important cause of constipation. Jogging for at least 30 minutes a day can well promote intestinal peristalsis and alleviate the pain of constipation.
Prevention of high blood pressure: the heart beats faster when jogging, because the heart needs to beat faster to supply more oxygen rich blood to the body. People who often jog can deliver more blood to their bodies even when they are resting. Regular jogging can normalize blood pressure by reducing weight and reducing stress response hormones in the blood.
