Warming Up For Jogging

Some people ignore warming up for jogging. You should make it a practice to walk for five minutes, then stretch for a few minutes before you begin jogging.

Warming up ensures that your cardiac system is well prepared to enhance your heart rate and improve blood flow. The warm-up session should not exceed 15 minutes.

When starting out, begin at a slow pace and raise your speed progressively to a comfortable level. Your breathing mechanism is a critical aspect at this stage because it determines how long you will sustain your session.

Practice diaphragmatic breathing for this increases oxygen flow. When it comes to exhalation, use your mouth as much as possible. This ensures that you release as much heat as possible from your system.
