Is Running on Treadmills Bad? | #aumsum


It’s AumSum Time. Is running on treadmills bad? Obviously. Because they’re designed for sleeping. No. Treadmills were actually invented so that. We don’t need to go out and we can jog as
per our convenience. However, there are certain disadvantages of
using a treadmill. Firstly, when we run on ground, we use our
leg muscles to propel our body forward. Thus allowing them to develop and strengthen. However, on a treadmill, as the propulsion
belt does the work for us. It limits our muscle development. Secondly, as compared to treadmills, nature
provides us uneven surfaces and turns. Allowing our leg muscles to learn and adapt. Thus improving our muscle efficiency and lateral
agility. Thirdly, most treadmills don’t have a downward
incline feature. Hence, the runners don’t get the benefit of
jogging downhills. Lastly, running on treadmills can be extremely
boring as compared to running outdoors. In addition to this, running outdoors helps
our body to get fresh air. And make vitamin D, thus improving our health. Is running bad for knees? That Depends. On What? Whether I am being made to run. Oh AumSum. Some people believe that running is bad for
knees because it causes arthritis. However, a research states the opposite. Really? Yes. Volunteers were made to run for 30 minutes
on a treadmill. Post running, certain substances associated
with arthritis. Were found less in the synovial fluid present
in the knee. And more in the blood. Thus, running might have squeezed these substances
out of the knees. Reducing the risk of arthritis. But yes, certain factors could cause trouble
to the knees. Running on concrete surfaces can damage the
cartilage in knee joints. The softer the surface, the more joint friendly
it is. Weight is another factor. Heavier the person, higher the risk of knee
injuries. The right shoe choice is also important. And lastly, cartilage loss could happen with
age. Increasing the risk of knee injury. Why do we stretch in the morning? So that we can sleep for two more hours. No. Wait. I’ll explain. When we wake up in the morning, we yawn and
stretch our arms and legs. This coordinated yawning and stretching is
referred to as pandiculation. I thought it is referred to as calculation. Hahaha. Ohh. Just listen. When we are asleep, we don’t perform any activities. Hence, our heart rate becomes slow and the
blood flow is decreased. Also, as many people lie in the same position
for long hours. Their muscles become stiff and tight. Thus, a good stretch in the morning awakens
our body. It brings our heart rate back to normal. Improving the blood flow to various body parts. Stretching also loosens and realigns our stiff
muscles. Making them more flexible and ready for the
day ahead. Why do some people sweat more than others? Because they like the smell of their sweat. Oh gross. No. Sweating or perspiration is a very essential
process. Sweat absorbs heat from our body and evaporates. Thus helping us regulate our body temperature. Now, during exceptional situations. Such as on a hot day or while exercising,
it is okay to sweat more than usual. But some people keep on sweating even under
normal conditions. Such excessive sweating is the result of a
condition called hyperhidrosis. In this condition, the sweat glands overreact
and produce more sweat than necessary. Besides this, caffeine in coffee and nicotine
in cigarettes also make us sweat more. In addition to this, men tend to sweat more
than women.
