How To Start Running (The Right Way)

Here is a video for beginners who are interested in running. This video explains how to properly get started. From proper warm ups, to proper cool downs and why it’s important. All of your runs should start with a warm-up and end with a cooldown. Why? the warm-up helps dilates your blood vessels, ensuring that your muscles are well supplied with oxygen. It also raises your muscles’ temperature for optimal flexibility and efficiency. A good warm-up also helps relieve stress on your heart when you start your run. Just as critical, the cooldown keeps the blood flowing throughout the body. Stopping suddenly can cause light-headedness because your heart rate and blood pressure drop rapidly. Winding down slowly allows them to fall gradually. It’s not a good idea to stretch cold muscles, so don’t start with stretching. Do about 5-10 minutes of light exercise(such as walking) to loosen up your muscles and warm you up for your run. Begin your run. Don’t start out racing, but instead jog slowly and gradually build up your speed. After you finish your run, cool down by walking or slowly jogging for 5 to 10 minutes. Stretch fully after your cooldown. Your body should be warm and stretching should be easy. Stretch your lower back, neck, calves, quadriceps, hamstrings and groin area. Hold each stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Get answers to all your questions, free advice, free tips, interact with us and other members of the community from all over the world. Master the

  8. Would be better to show you warm up routine because you are saying to warm and cool for a total of 10-20 minutes and most people run for 10-20 minutes….maybe 30 if they are fit.Should make some running tutorial

  9. Running warms up your muscles, stretching prevents your muscles from becoming tight

  10. Go to a vitamin shop and get monster mass, if its not there than order it online. Look up crossfit if you are really desiring to get stonger

  14. give me some food and cooking tips please

  15. i got it all wrong

  16. Stretching first isn’t a good idea. It’s effectively useless and even counterproductive to stretch your muscles while they’re still cold. Stretching is most effective after a workout.

  17. so walk, then stretch? I thought stretching was supposed to warm up your muscles for any activity….totally confused now. I even bought the beginners running guide….

  22. i dont wanted to viloate anybody, i just thought i tell some extra information in my first comment :D but i dont like if somebody call me idiot :P that’s why thse second comment is here (and i said if u like it do it)

  23. Who cares what people proof people have been doing it for years after a run why change it now. Even if it does nothing it could do some psychologically.

  24. lol, ok maybe u know it better, but who the fuck u are? a professor? monitorhero? u are on idiot… do the cool downs, who cares, but the truth is proven… if u like it do it nobody cares…
