Aerobic exercise not only helps burn calories, it’s also good for cardiovascular health. When deciding which type of exercise to do, you should choose it based on your physical condition and desired intensity of exercise. Let’s find out the difference between fast walking and slow jogging, which anyone can easily do among many aerobic exercises, based on the content introduced in the ‘Times of India’, a leading English-language newspaper in India.

Walking 140 steps per minute faster = better for weight loss
Both walking and running are aerobic exercises that offer significant health benefits, including weight loss and reduced risk of heart disease.

Walking briskly is an exercise that raises your heart rate and burns more calories than slow walking or walking. When walking fast, the speed is usually 100 steps per minute or 130 steps per minute as fast as possible.

Although you burn fewer calories than jogging, walking briskly can also help you lose weight and improve your overall health. Because it is a low-impact exercise, it reduces the risk of injury, and it is one of the best aerobic exercises for people with joint pain or injuries, the elderly, and those just starting out. If you can’t even run slowly, a brisk walk can be a good alternative.

45 steps per second, running slowly = more effective than just walking

On the other hand, slow running is a jogging exercise with at least a conversational intensity, usually running at a speed of 45 to 50 steps in 15 seconds. It is also highly effective and improves respiratory, cardiac, and muscular function.

Slow running burns more calories than walking at a similar pace, so it’s more effective for weight loss. You can also see other benefits of aerobic exercise, such as boosting immunity and improving heart health. Although the impact on the joints is greater than walking, it can always be a good exercise if you don’t have any health problems.
