Running is a popular way to exercise. 64 million Americans have run at least once in the past year. Learn more about how running can help you losing weight.
Running burns more calories
Running gives you many health benefits and can help you lose weight. You need to burn more calories to lose weight, and running can make it easier to maintain balance in these accounts. Running is an effective exercise that burns more calories than most other forms of exercise. An important reason for this is that several muscles have to work hard together when you run.
HIIT intervals, a high-intensity form of running training, burn the most calories per minute, using muscles with maximum power and intensity. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) burns the most calories per minute by using various muscles at their maximum power.
High-Intensity training (HIIT) continues to burn calories after exercise
Exercising will help you lose weight, but just a few types of exercise will help you burn calories even after you finish exercising. High-intensity training (HIIT) can be running on hill-running and sprint intervals. HIIT can help you burn calories for up to 48 hours after a workout.
This type of exercise uses a lot of muscle and needs more energy afterward to recover. This is often called the ‘afterburning effect.’ Several studies have found that the ‘afterburn effect’ can help you burn significantly more calories over time.
10 men cycled for 45 minutes at high intensity to calculate how many calories were burned. On average, participants burned 519 calories during the workout and 190 extra during the 14 hours after the exercise.
High-Intensity running can suppress appetite
Running can help you lose weight by lowering the production of hunger hormones and increasing the production of satiety hormones.
One study found that running for 60 minutes or strength training for 90 minutes reduced satiety hormones compared to no training.
