Jogging For Weight Loss Isn’t Enough, Study Shares A Trick To Burn Twice As Many Calories In The Process

If you are going for a jog to lose the extra kilos and trim your waistline, try increasing the pace and distance or start jogging uphill for better results

Walking is too less and running is too much – for those who feel this way, jogging helps find the fitness sweet spot. Neither too intense nor too light, jogging helps keep the cardio game going with a moderate-intensity workout.

On the health benefits front, it helps strengthen the immune system while keeping the heart healthy and inducing weight loss at the same time. Jogging can be done anywhere, quite literally.

However, if you are trying to look for ways to maximise the benefits and burn way more calories in the process, there is a simple trick that could help you burn twice as many calories.

Jogging uphill

Walking, running, or jogging – once you decide to take the uphill route, the intensity of the aerobic exercise increases and its outcome gets better. If you are going for a jog to lose the extra kilos and trim your waistline, try increasing the pace and distance or start jogging uphill for better results.

This could also help dodge the much-dreaded weight loss plateau. While going incline, you can also target and activate more muscles in the lower body.

Wondering how to incorporate uphill jogging into your routine? It’s simple.

To begin, find a hilly region in your locality where you can begin. Try to find someplace located slightly higher than the ground level and that is where you can start. Begin jogging slowly until you reach the top. Then slowly walk downwards to where you started.

This will help bring the heart rate down and allow you to catch your breath. Repeat three to five rounds of this. If you do not have access to hills, try using a treadmill for the incline effect. Set the machine to 1.5 to 2.5 per cent and begin jogging at a quicker pace than you can maintain for a minute.

Then slow down the pace for one or two minutes and repeat the same for 15 to 20 minutes.
