Running is not as easy as you think
Most people think that running is a very simple matter, but it is not.
Running is one of the person's instinctive reactions, but to achieve physical exercise through the form of running, you must know its correct methods and techniques.
First of all, to master the correct running posture. Using the wrong running posture for a long time will cause our knees to be seriously damaged. It not only fails to exercise, but is counterproductive.
For example, during running, the body is perpendicular to the ground: This posture will cause greater pressure on our joints, which can easily cause damage to the joints. Excessive steps during running can easily lead to physical fatigue. This kind of fatigue accumulation It is also one of the reasons that can easily lead to chronic injury to the body. The method of heel landing is used during running: This will cause greater stress on our ankle joints and it will easily lead to ankle injury. In the correct running posture, the body should be slightly forward, the pace should not be too large, use the middle of the foot to touch the ground, the pace is light, the shoulders relax, arms naturally swing to the chest, and relax the core muscles. This will minimize wear and tear on our joints during running.
Second, to learn the right way to breathe often running people have had this experience, if you adjust the bad breath, it will not run for a long time breathless, and then clenched teeth to run a few steps, it is a bit difficult to breathe. Having the correct breathing method will make running easy and lasting. There are two ways to breathe while running: one is to breathe only with the nose, and the other is to breathe together. At the beginning of running, or when the speed is slow, the oxygen demand is small, and the oxygen demand can be met only by breathing with the nose. When the running time is longer or faster, the mouth should be opened with breathing to relieve the pressure of the respiratory muscles. At the same time, the breathing rhythm should closely match the pace. Usually the rhythm of jogging is a call every 2 to 3 steps, every 2 to 3 steps and a breath, and keep breathing evenly, so that it will feel brisk to run up. Pay attention to the depth of breathing when running for a long time. Many people do not pay attention to the depth of breathing when running, so when they continue to exercise for a long time, they will have shortness of breath, resulting in feelings of chest tightness and difficulty breathing. Although some people pay attention to inspiration, they often overlook the depth of exhalation. Taking deep breaths as much as possible during running can supply more oxygen to the body and slow down fatigue. Running warm-up I teach you that the internal organs and limbs of the human body need to adapt from a relatively static state to a stressful activity. Therefore, proper preparations must be made before running so that the physiological function of the body can work in a coordinated manner. If you don't do preparatory activities before running, joint ligaments and tendon sprains often occur during running, especially if you are in a tight bed and you are more prone to injury. We can warm up with body stretching. Stretching before running can prevent injuries. Stretching after running can relax muscles.
