Health Benefits of Running Daily - PharmEasy

 1. Burn Those Calories –

Running increases your core body temperature and prompts it to start shedding extra body fat. The more consistent you are with it, the more calories you burn. Moreover, running every day helps your body build lean muscles. So you get leaner and fitter over time, while your body weight remains the same.

For an intense running session, you can add some weights like backpacks, a weighted vest or wrist weights – it will increase the number of calories burned during a run.

Start with a warm up, running for at least 30 mins a day, accompanied by endurance and aerobic exercises are proven to benefit the general health. Do not forget to take a day’s break in a week for running.

Dr. Ashish Bajaj, M.B.B.S., M.D

 2. Works Great for Cardio Fitness –

Running daily improves your breathing technique. It forces you to take deep breaths while boosting your heart rate and exercising the lungs. When you go for a run every day, your body adapts to it quickly and can use oxygen more efficiently. This can help reduce heart rate when you are resting – which is a sign of good health.

You can increase your speed by choosing to run on an inclined surface, for instance – a hill or an inclined treadmill. This will require your body to work a little harder and put more effort during a run. The more effort you put into the run, the more calories you burn.

 3. Keeps You Energized Through the Day –

Cardio exercises, such as running, causes your body to release endorphins. These react with the brain receptors and alleviate pain or stress while creating a happy ambience within you. The endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body, so you feel energized instead of exhausted even after a strenuous workout. This motivates you to train the next day again and offers a host of long-term benefits.

After 1 year of training, running was effective in reducing body mass by 3.3kg, body fat by 2.7 % , resting heart rate by 6.7 per minute and triglycerides by 16.9 mg according to a meta-analysis.

Dr. M.G. Kartheeka, MBBS, MD
