Many people enjoy jogging. They usually run in the early morning to reap the benefits of early morning sunshine as well. Indeed it is one kind of exercise that can shed off unwanted pounds when done regularly for at least 30 minutes or so. But wait, do you know that jogging is not actually a good exercise. While it can trim down your excess fats easily it can lead to some problems later in your life.

 Firstly, jogging can lead to knee injury. Our knees support the weight of our body so we have to take extra care to keep them from harm. Jogging put so much pressure on knees so if we jog from day to day we are actually working toward disintegration of our knees. It is a fact that most of people don’t even have enough supply of vitamins and minerals to keep their bones strong so even if you are still young you have to avoid putting so much strain on your knees. As we age, our bones become brittle and our joints lose cartilage and at this point it is all the more not advisable to engage in jogging.
 Running put so much pressure on our legs especially on our knee joints so that a jogger tends to suffer chronic knee pain later in his life.

Secondly jogging can cause cheeks to sag easily. While doctors and some others deny the truth of this, many regular joggers can actually prove with their own experience that it does really lead to cheek sagging. . So stop jogging if you don’t want to look older than your age. Doctors who belie this truth do not even jog so don’t believe them.

While there are other more bad side effects of jogging, I believe these two mentioned here are more than enough to make you quit. When you quit, it does not mean you should quit exercising all throughout. You just have to shift to another safer alternative. And what safer alternative is highly recommended? Well it is no other than brisk walking, the best exercise ever. With brisk walking you can still enjoy fellowship with your friends while enjoying the sunshine as well.
