There’s lots of ways to get your cardio up and going on the regular. The most popular one is running. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, running gets the job done. We came up with a list of the top 5 benefits of running:
#5 – Relieves Stress
Running boosts the brain’s serotonin levels which make you calmer and more relaxed. Who said you can’t run away from your problems. Just remember to always be comfortable during your runs. One of the best ways is to wear comfy basics with light fabrics, like the Champion T425 Short Sleeve Cotton Tee.
#4 – Weight Control
Running burns mega-calories. However, it also makes you mega-hungry, especially if you are training for long distances. Unfortunately, running doesn’t give you a pass to eat all the food, all the time. Be strategic with everything you eat and the type of run you do.
#3 – Increased Confidence
Once you start running, your confidence begins to grow. You’ll feel more in control of your life and your body. You will even begin to think you look good in spandex tights. Once you’ve gain that confidence, try something like the B960 Performance Capri, from Champion.
#2 – Helps Prevent High Blood Pressure
Your arteries expand and contract while running, helping to keep your arteries fit which in turn keeps your blood pressure in a normal range. That is until you find out that your favorite running tops are worn-out. Nothing is harder to replace than beloved running apparel, so we’ll make it easier for you! Click here and find out how.
#1 – Overall Mental Health
