What is the difference between running outside and running on the spot? Which one it better! Xx
It all what you like the diffrences i see is the way i breath when im loutside there is always change in weather. but on a treadmill or on the spot u in a control tempeture setting.
If you're doing it as part as circuit training for a minute or two, it will serve the same purpose as jumping rope in-between strength-training sets or exercises: keeping your heart rate going. But it definetely is not the same as running outside or on a treadmill, or jumping rope. First of all, there is no wind resistance for you to work against, no changes in terrain (or incline, if you're on a treadmill) and I think I heard someplace that it is more likely to cause overuse injuries because you're moving in the same place. It's just not as effective :) One great thing you can do at home instead of just jogging in place is drills-these will work and strengthen your leg muscles, to make you a stronger runner. Jog in place lifting your knees really high for 2 minutes, then switch to kicking up your heels very high for another 2 minutes. Skip sideways, alternating sides. You can do this even if you don't have much room, say in an apartment. If you have a bench or even a step, you can try step exercises. Hope this helped
For me, running on a treadmill is harder because you don't have the change in scenery. When I run outside, I don't think about how much further I have to go as much; I can just focus on my breathing and stride.
I think running on treadmill is gr8.....because u can keep count of ur perfornmance and keeps u boosting to push ur limits further.....
It's all about you how do you feel better, running on treadmill has it's benefits and running out on the open has it's own moments so i think it's all about how you feel.I must say running outside it's the best for me :-)
Definitely outside because you increase your aerobic endurance and your speed
It's normally my wife who puts the brakes on me when it's super hot. So if it is something like going climbing and she is the climbing partner for the day she convinces me to go to the beach to dive and swim etc... I remember a while ago my mate getting on a big long route at his maximum grade in full sun in 44 degreesmud ring a record breaking heat wave... His shoes were melting on the rock - one of the most inspiring things I've ever seen.
but, yeah, I love it when we get weather extremes, being so stupidly uncomfortable is so much fun... In hindsight :-P
