Jogging is a moderate-intensity aerobic exercise designed to warm up or exercise, running long distances at a slow or moderate pace. Jogging can bring many benefits to the body.
There are three types of jogging: in situ running, free running, and quantitative running.
Running in place refers to running in place, such as running at home.
Free running is a running method similar to variable speed running, which is carried out by individuals according to their own conditions, such as faster, slower, and free settings.
Quantitative running is to set a running amount for yourself, such as how many meters to run in how much time, or how much to run directly.
Correct running form is also important.
1. Feet posture.
The jogger hits the ground with the midfoot and heel.
2. Head posture.
Special care is required when turning the head, usually from the upper part of the neck, to avoid twisting the body and avoid instability when traveling.
3. Knee posture.
Don't lift your knees too high when running long distances. Only sprinters need to lift their knees.
