Trying to Get Healthy: Running or Walking?

Came across this article about walking vs. running today. Thoughts?

 

– Past studies have shown that walking andrunning provide almost the same reductions in hypertension and depressivesymptoms. However a very large, recent American study has released a similarconclusion, and includes coronary heart disease on the list. However, thatstudy actually favors running as the better activity.

 

To summarize the findings, "those howchoose running achieved more than twice the exercise doses as those who choosewalking, and given the strong dose-response relationship, higher exercise dosesand lower risk factors, promoting more vigorous exercise, are likely to producegreater health benefits," the researchers wrote. Most people run at least twice as fast as they walk, which means theamount of energy expelled during running is double that of walking.

 

Regardless of which exercise chosen, having theright clothing makes the exercise more comfortable and enjoyable. Expert Brandhas all the performance apparel to make running or walking a pleasant activity.The website http://expertbrand.com has a great selection and is easy to shop.
