If you have a very busy schedule and can’t find a fixed time to work out daily, jogging is an easy solution. You don’t need to go to gym. All you need is a comfortable pair of running shoes, an ipod and a great environment that would add to the experience. Jogging and running are plain aerobic exercises with ample benefits.
1) Improves stamina
Jogging for some time everyday improves your stamina and increases your body’s endurance.
2) Improves cardiovascular fitness
Along with the body, the heart and lungs also exercise as the heart needs to pump blood faster to the body and your rate of breathing also increases.
3) It builds up strong bones as it is a weight bearing exercise
When you jog, your feet bear the weight of your whole body and this way, your bones grow stronger due to endurance exercises.
4) Burn plenty of calories
Jogging is physical exertion and as you jog, a lot of calories are burnt to produce more and more energy. This energy is supplied to the muscles so that you can keep running without fatigue.
5) Helps maintain your weight
Since such a large number of calories are being burnt, the amount of fat in your body reduces and your weight stays in check as long as you exercise routinely.
6) Strengthens your muscles.
Similar to your bones, your muscles also work a lot while you jog and as they are forced to carry your body weight and switch the weight from one foot to another in such short time spans, your muscles become stronger too.
