Running, a new lifestyle

Melhor qualidade de vida com uma rotina de exercícios físicos

Running is one of the most complete physical activities in terms of health benefits and fitness, as well as being one of the most rewarding. In addition to staying healthy and losing the fats that bothers you. There is a lot of scientific evidence that proves that there are more benefits of running or any intense exercises practiced regularly than any pill that a doctor can prescribe.

It is one of the most efficient physical exercises for those who want to lose weight healthily. Running speeds up your metabolism, making calorie burning happen more efficiently. The increase in metabolism, caused by running, causes the body to continue accelerating for a few more hours after exercise. That is, it is not only during the race that there is fat burning.

That is why regularity of physical activity is so important, and not the amount of hours spent in the same day. Practitioners claim that exercise becomes a lifestyle over time, and experts assure that this lifestyle serves to improve aerobic fitness and increase the activity of enzymes and hormones that stimulate muscles and the heart to work better, among other benefits.

Who can do it?

For those who already walk and have better physical conditioning, running becomes natural, because the effort required to maintain the same heart rate in training forces you to speed up your pace. The person will be ready to run after at least two weeks of walking or some other form of regular exercise (about 30 minutes a day, four or five days a week). This will decrease the risk of getting hurt;
