There is no point running to keep your body healthy. Walking regularly 30 minutes in the morning, reduces the risk of having diabetes or depressing. This activity reduces the risk of premature death, fights cardiovascular disease and keeps it healthy, according to Dr. Gregg Fonarow, spokesperson for the American Heart Association. The study Dr. Gregg Fonarow has done has shown that walking brings more benefits to the body than running.
- Reduces the rate of bad cholesterol by 7% against only 4.3 by running.
- Reduces the risk of diabetes by 12.3% against 12.1% when running.
- Reduces hypertension by 7.2% versus 4.2% by running.
- Reduces the risk of heart disease by 9.3% against 4.5% when running.
How to make the most of the benefits of walking?
It is important to start warming up before starting to walk. The body must prepare for the physical effort it will accomplish. He must also stretch at the end of each step, to prevent it from cooling down.
In order to get the most out of walking, the toes must be stretched forward, the arms move naturally and continuously, and the shoulders slightly behind. When walking, the chin should be high enough not to see the ground and the heel must be the first to touch the ground. The weight of the body does the rest of the work.
