Surprisingly, 70 percent of the Australian population is no exercise or does not comply with recommendations recommended by the World Health Organization for 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise per week. “We are now a nation suffering from sarcopenic obesity where it lowers muscle mass and increases fat mass,” Newton said.

However, the lack of activity in our country once the sportswoman who has concerns for the experts. “Being fat does not cause heart disease, it’s a low level of physical activity,” he said. “You may be obese, but if you do 150 minutes of exercise a week, the risk of dying from anything is going to be a third that has a normal weight, but that is sedentary.”

And for the 5.4 million Australian low bone content, running is one of the best exercises to change this diagnosis.

Up to 60 to 150 minutes of running each week will increase your life expectancy by about six years.

“Every time you hit the ground, the load through your body during the” flight phase “is two to three times your body weight,” says Newton. This produces positive incentives for the bones, through the legs, hips and lumbar spine.

Bones, which have small cells, respond to the changing force, and measure the charge at each force. This generates electrical currents in the cells and stimulates them to deposit more bone. “While anti-osteoporosis drugs simply increase bone mass at random and poison cells that remove bone. It seems like a lot of builders who put bricks in a construction site, but in fact they do not create structure.”

Make sure it is suitable

“You should get the right shoe for your foot,” said Anna Baird, the podiatrist and shoe designer ( “A beautiful shoe may look elegant, but it was made for a different form of walking or running style like yours, which can only cause personal injury.”

Or participate in any shoe? Running barefoot has recently experienced a resurgence, but it’s not for everyone.

“If you’re an experienced runner, then you’ll be fine,” Baird said. “When you run barefoot, you will naturally landed on the front foot and when you wear shoes, it will put you on the heel, resulting in increased pressure on your body.

“However, the onset of the front foot means that it will hit the ground more often. It depends on the strength of your body and your running style of what you choose to do.”

Heat or not?

“It takes five to ten minutes to allow the transition from rest to rigorous exercise, and even reverse,” said Chris van Hoof, sports coach.

“This is the most dangerous time where you can have a cardiovascular event or injury.”

Remember, jogging should not be a daily exercise routine. “In a 48-hour period doing something different,” Newton said. “Jog every two days, but between mixing with a weight training, cycling or swimming as they do not hit the same muscle groups. This allows the bones and muscles to form again.

“[Then] 48 hours after the race, hit another stimulant.”
