Only stories about runners are told here

Generally in the gym, everyone chooses to run on the treadmill, which is also very convenient, but it is more troublesome to choose to run outdoors at this time. So now many young people are more inclined to run on the treadmill.

But is treadmill running really better than outdoor running? If it were you, what would you choose?

In fact, the birth of the treadmill has not been in people’s field of vision for a long time. The earliest home treadmill was developed in 1965 by Nordic, Finland, Tantley. However, there is no power output device, and there is a slope. Running on it is like a tank. The crawlers are also driven backwards.

It is precisely because of the birth of this treadmill that people began to gradually accept running at home.

With the development of time and science and technology, it has gradually evolved into the intelligent treadmill we see today. Whether it is a treadmill or outdoor running has become a battle of many people’s tongues.

Runner A said: The treadmill is very convenient to run, and you don’t need to care whether the weather outside is hot or cold. It is also safe to run, and it is not affected by the road conditions and delays the performance of running.

Runner B said: Running outdoors is definitely better than running indoors. Being able to breathe fresh air and experience nature with your body means running in itself should be an outdoor sport.

So each runner has his own opinion, and it is difficult to distinguish who is good and who is bad? Today, Xiaofang will briefly introduce the advantages between the two. Let’s take a look at it together.

Advantages of “treadmill”:

1. Less damage to the knee

The current treadmill design is very intelligent and user-friendly, basically with the function of shock absorption, and the running belt itself has good elasticity, which can minimize the impact on the knee and protect the probability of knee damage. In terms of more protection, of course, the wrong running posture will also affect the knee damage.

2. Relatively labor-saving

It may be more laborious for some people to run on the treadmill. In fact, theoretically speaking, there is no air resistance when running indoors, and the elasticity of the running belt on the treadmill can reduce physical consumption, which is relatively less labor-intensive.

3. Not affected by the weather

This is a benefit for those who love running. After all, in the event of heavy rain and snow, there is no need to worry about not being able to run. You can run and sweat on the treadmill to your heart’s content.

The advantages of “outdoor running”:

1. Fun and easy to stick to

Although indoor running does not need to worry about the outdoor weather, it lacks the joy of nature. You can enjoy the scenery along the way with your friends, and then you can easily run 10 kilometers while talking, laughing and chatting, and you will not be so easily tired and sleepy.

2, is conducive to the results

Outdoor running can exercise the muscles of all parts of the body, it is more effective, while running on the treadmill is more to exercise the biceps femoris and rectus femoris, and the muscles of other parts are rarely exercised. In addition, running outdoors is easier to improve explosive power, thereby improving running performance.

3. Good for the eyes

Outdoors are not as closed as indoors. We can feel the changes in the natural environment while running. Especially for some runners who often look at electronic screens, seeing more green can make the eyes more relaxed, which is conducive to preventing and combating myopia.

In general, each has its own advantages, and perhaps different ages, different groups, and different choices for everyone. But personally, I still prefer “outdoor running”, so what about you? Do you prefer treadmill running or outdoor running?
