Intro – 0:00
Pro #1: Heart Health
Running is great for the heart. Every time you run, it strengthens your cardiovascular system. The faster you move, the more oxygen you’re taking in. Running high intensity intervals increases your oxygen uptake the same way burpees do.
Pro #2: Stable Back And Core
Getting sick of feeling that awful tension in your back? Well, running every day can help fix that. You see, when you run, your core muscles become activated. This assists both your lower and upper back, along with your pelvic and trunk rotation. On top of that, running strengthens another important muscle. Let’s talk about your lats for a second.
Pro #3: Easier Breathing
Another thing to look forward to when running every day is better breathing. Running helps open your diaphragm. This is the thin skeletal muscle that sits at the base of your chest. When you breathe in, the diaphragm is supposed to contract, bringing oxygen into your lungs. When you breathe out, the diaphragm then relaxes as air is pushed out of your lungs.
Pro #4: Stronger Lower-Body Muscles
It’s not just your diaphragm or lats that get a workout when you run. You’re also challenging your lower-body muscles. I’m talking about your quads, glutes, hamstrings and calves. Every time you run, they’re put to the test.
Con #1: Risk Of Injury Goes Up
Not everyone’s body is the same. We can’t all adapt to a new physical lifestyle as quickly. Certain people’s tendons, tissues and ligaments will have a hard time adjusting. Because of this, running might increase your chances of injury.
Con #2: Quick Burnouts
For some, everyday exercise can lead to overtraining. Think about it, you're causing your body a lot of stress. This results in extreme fatigue, mood swings, decreased performance, lack of appetite and less sleep.
