THURSDAY, May 4, 2017 (HealthDay News) Running and walking are both popular ways to get a great cardio workout. But is a brisk walk really as good an exercise as a sweaty, heart-pounding run?It Out – The Need-To-Know While walking can provide many of the same health benefits associated with running, recent research suggests running may be the better bet for those looking to shed some pounds. Unsurprisingly, people expend two-and-a-half times more energy running than walking, whether that’s on the track or on the treadmill.

Walking and running are both excellent forms of cardiovascular exercise. Neither is necessarily “better” than the other. The choice that’s best. Yes, researchers say, because according to a study conducted by sports scientists which studied the energy expenditure between walking and running which found out that yes, running consumes more energy. While walking can provide many of the same health benefits associated with running, recent research suggests running may be the better bet for those looking to shed some pounds.

Unsurprisingly, people expend two-and-a-half times more energy running than walking, whether that’s on the track or on the treadmill. Walking and running are two easy modes of physical activity that don’t require equipment or a gym membership. Grab your sneakers, map out a route (or hop in the treadmill) and you’re on your way. Three of the known good exercises for longevity are walking, running and swimming A recent study revealed that one of these exercises.

Here, we break down the benefits and drawbacks of each so you can decide which is a better workout for you. Running is the most accessible of the three activities, as you only need shoes, apparel and space to run. Plus, it may be more intuitive than equipment-based workouts, like cycling, or water-based activities like swimming.

You can also fulfill the minimum exercise requirements with 75 minutes per week of vigorous activity like jogging, running or race walking on the treadmill or using a vigorous workout on the rower or indoor cycle. The cardio benefits of working out at high intensity are not determined by any one type of machine they provide equal benefits. Another deciding factor for which is a better form of exercise is whether you are biking or walking indoors or outdoors.

If you are at the gym using the treadmill, you have the option to increase the speed or the incline.

  • I started about 1 year ago on this training and was overweight. Now I have lost over 10 kg,
    but It was difficult at start. I can do now at an incline setting @ 15 an a speed 7.3-7.5, I burn over 850 calories in 1 hour. (7 km)…btw I am 59. I was a size 85cm waist, now 79cm. Believe me it works!

  • Excellent video! And so true! If I force myself to do something that I don’t enjoy, I will stop doing it sooner or later. I run every now and then because it’s great workout but I LOVE walking outside with my headphones on. I would rather go for a walk for an hour than go to run for 30 minutes.

  • I’m a football player in Texas (Where 100 degree heat is normal)… I usually do half my cardio outside (On the field, sleds, etc.), and the other half inside on a treadmill)

  • for a beginner they should walk for one month the second month they should jog the 3rd month they should start running well that’s what I think take things slow and in between that they can do their other exercises

  • Walking,Before my grandma past on,she past on two things Cooking,and Walking!She would walk late at night,when i was very young to 20s.But these days isnt safe anymore to walk past 9pm due violence and people driving careless in this world.

  • FitBody Energy sample packs are back in stock at my FitBeauty Shop! And make sure you use the coupon code for Free Shipping. Enjoy ladies! xoxoDoc -> https://drphoenyx.com

  • I mean I would run outside but I live in a really shady town with loose dogs everywhere and a grave site not even half a mile away from my house so I’m not even going to risk it

  • Your channel has been so helpful for my OTF workouts! Thank you so much. I got some injuries and your videos have helped me correct my form and avoid hurting myself ��

  • Why is this even a video? A little common sense tells you running outside in the environment over hills and valleys is a lot healthier and more fun than a sterile ass treadmill.

    All in all though an informative an entertaining video regardless of why people wonder such things.

  • Shout out to all the power walkers out there I’m with you, I power walk and I’m tell you a one minute all out at 4.5mph and a 15% incline is killer

  • Hi ma’am I absolutely love your page, I’m 304 lbs. how many miles should I be walking at this weight? Because I don’t wanna overdo it. However I do want to lose weight rapidly. I lowered my carbs and sugary foods. I workout 5 days a week at the gym but I’m not losing fast enough.

  • God those anchors are so stupid and fake. Good thing my part of the world doesn’t like stupid, insignificant humor, why do you even need to joke. Fuck.

  • Free radicals are toxic byproducts of oxygen metabolism that can cause significant damage to living cells and tissues in a process called “oxidative stress.” The vitamins and minerals the body uses to counteract oxidative stress are called antioxidants.. if he has foods are rich in antioxidants it stops two cells from splitting bumping into each other and destroying each other that’s encouraging aging, safety stick to foods that are rich in antioxidants like blueberries, the more balanced your diet is with such vitamins and minerals your body will perform better and you’ll live a long life.

  • Nice video. Another advantage of walking is the consistency. For me personally I hit the gym 4 times a week normally at noon time. I’m still able to go for a 30 min walk in the evening without any issues. With running it would be very difficult to maintain the consistency.

  • In incline walking I finally found a cardio exercise that I can do and enjoy. My back, hip and knee problems prevented me from doing prettymuch anything else. But incline walking works, it’s fun and, god do I feel a burn in my glutes and calves.

  • Fitness walking and doing bodyweight exercises is a great way to get in shape and stay in shape. Walking is gentle on the body and the mind. Start walking now and you will be able to continue doing this great exercise well into your advanced years!

  • I do not like running.. I walk in nature for 20 mins in the morning as well as evening..I enjoy watching trees,chirping birds and colorful sky..It is uphill downhill walking… I never realized its been 3 months now.. my total cholesterol came down from 200 to 152..I am feel happy and healthy:)

  • Omg I love your videos I’m a medical laboratory scientist I know the medical aspect but the way u connect the medical with like is amazing I learn. Soo much

  • I hate the outdoors. Hot, bugs, other people. And for a blond Irishman who can’t tan, the sun is evil. I prefer my treadmill. I have air conditioning and I can watch tv while I run. Plus I get shin splints too easily on pavement. Treadmill is much easier on the legs.

  • Yeah! It can motivate you and you may see hot males or females as well!!

    But a lot of people in my neighborhood just look at me and keep STARRING! it slowly makes me uncomfortable to run outside..and the anxiety ��

    I’m JuSt TrYinG tO GeT tHaT SuMmER BoD!

  • Running outside forces me to breathe cold air which hurts my throat, also I don’t have a good pair of trainers, on top of that, there isn’t much green outside in my country. So I’d prefer a treadmill.

  • Have u ever heard a phrase less is more? Yes walking in long run will benefit our entire body organs unlike jogging.just look at all marathon runners.sprint may look good but in long run will damage our body too.

  • I’ve been considering making one of my days a “walk hard” day. This is motivational to that goal. I’m running at 7.8/8.8/9.9 at the moment with 30s AO’s at 10 or 11. So I was thinking that I need to add inclines into my life. What is a good general walking pace for someone that is used to running?

  • Man you know your stuff I enjoy jogging, lefting weights and dancing. Plus I’m going to do the P90X video as well. Thank you for all your advice
