Exclamation

jogging on the spot VS jogging


is jogging/running on the spot as effective as on the road or on a track of some sort, i jog on the spot at home all the time, watching tv, in my bedroom, but i find i am not out of breath or sweating much compared to an outside run, i do alot o=in the night indoors...

am i wasting my time:confused:

Re: jogging on the spot VS jogging


In answer to your question, running inside as opposed to the fresh outdoors is probably not good no. It's probably better to run outside along a pavement or something and get into the rythem.

If you like to aerobic exercise indoors, then why not consider getting a bike or ergo machine

well, in the nights, in jamaica, running outside would not really be my cup of tea
but where i live the air is clean, my house is well ventilated, and i have a bike, i just like jogging on the spot, cant see why it wouldnt be the same, maybe i should try running around the house, inside that is

look mate, I can't see why it wouldn't be the same either.... but if you thought that why ask ? Running outside has its benefits, such as motivation when you see others doing it or some girl passing you by.... jogging indoors is fairly boring, never tried it but doesn't take much to imagine. I guess if running up and down stairs does it for you then yeah, you would still benefit, that is as long as you dont fall down the stairs.

Not a good idea, unless you live in a castle. You might fall over things, not to mention how you will annoy the other members of the household. If I started jogging around the house, my wife will probably have me locked up.

Maybe you should insert more fury into your little jog on the mill. I cant get a good workout onthe treaderator unless I do high knees,spin around(try this at slow speeds first.)skips..If I dont strain myself a little..I might as well not even try...I bought mine for my wife who hasnt used it..I have to use it to knock the dust of it when it rains or snows too much.

i have to say good sh!t JOMO, even running around like you are beats sitting on your arse thinking about it. When i first popped a hydroxy i felt the same, i just kept hopping up, doing star jumps, racing the dogs around the yard, anything at all....as funny as the pictute i see of a guy running up and down a driveway is, i reckon good onya, at least ya doing 'something'!

Also runnning on the spot doesnt recruit as many fibres thats why you dont get as pooped as an outside or distance run. But hey it still beats sitting on your arse!
