The Harms Of Running

Track

Have you ever thought that running would be harmful for your health? Contrary to what most of us believe, running is not always healthy to all types of people. As running is a high impact workout, the joints  are more likely to suffer pressure that ripples to the rest of the body parts. To arrest this issue, pool running is something you can consider. Muscle fatigue is another problem runners have to bear with. This is specifically true for those who constantly run on flat surfaces. Here, the same sets of muscles are put into work while some are left unexercised. Lastly, there is the threat of dehydration. As we sweat, much of our body fluids are expended. More often than not, runners already got dehydrated under the heat of the sun before they even get a sip of water.

Two other disadvantages brought about by body building are eating disorders and steroid use.
