If you are like us who can’t help but procrastinate workouts, let us take fitness inspiration together from Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor whose zeal to hit the grind ahead of a night shoot is unmatchable. Ticking off cardio workout, Shraddha geared up for a night shoot of her upcoming movie and her sweat glow during the treadmill run at the gym is all the fitness motivation we need to get us excited for our next exercise session.
Taking to her social media handle, Shraddha shared a video straight from the gym that gave fans a glimpse of her robust workout drill. The video featured the diva donning all white athleisure wear with a white hoodie and a pair of white tights along with a pair of white sneakers.
Pulling back her silky tresses into a high ponytail hairstyle, Shraddha nailed the sporty look. She shared in the caption, “Pre night shoot workout powered by my power girl @maaheknair (sic)” and punctuated it with a purple heart emoji.
Benefits of running on a treadmill:
Running on a treadmill helps improve speed and stamina. It helps one to burn calories faster than other forms of aerobic exercises.
It is very beneficial as a warm-up exercise since it elevates the heart rate to a healthy level which in turn enables a person to perform other exercises like weight training or other cardio exercises, with increased safety and success. This cardiovascular activity not only strengthens the heart but also helps to lower blood pressure and improves blood circulation in the body.
Benefits of running outdoors:
As per a study on Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases, running each day for just 5 to 10 minutes at a moderate pace, say 6.0 miles per hour, not only has a significant impact on longetivity but may also reduced the risk of death from heart attack or stroke and other cardiovascular disease, lower the risk of developing cancer, lower the risk of developing neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. The study highlighted that runners in general have a 25%–40% reduced risk of premature mortality and live approximately 3 years longer than non-runners.
Improved sleep and moods are other benefits of running. As per a group of Dutch researchers, running 2.5 hours per week or 30 minutes for five days a week can also result in enjoying maximum longevity benefits.
Apart from strengthening muscles and improving cardiovascular fitness, running helps to build strong bones, as it is a weight bearing exercise and burns plenty of kilojoules which in turn helps to maintain a healthy weight.
Even running in the cold or in the rain won’t make you sick instead, it will help you in achieving herculean strength and building mental toughness. From cooling you off to enabling you to go farther, longer and maybe even faster, running in the rain burns more calories as our bodies aren’t at risk of overheating and it makes you tough.
