Swimming Vs Running - Which One Should You Go For?

Swimming Vs Running - Which One Should You Go For?

Swimming or running? Having to prioritize between the two can be quite a daunting task. While swimming has its loyal followers, one cannot ignore the health benefits of running either. In fact, swimming and running are like two faces of the same coin. What is suitable for one may not be an ideal choice for another. While swimming may be helpful for some, others might benefit from running. Following the mad rush does not make any sense. Know what are your requirements, strengths, and weaknesses and then choose between the two.

This article is an attempt to clear your confusion and thus, help you choose between the two.

  1. Injury: Running and swimming can both result in an injury. However, running is more intense. Thus, chances and frequency of an injury (muscle cramps, ligament tear, sprain or fracture) are slightly more in the case of running. In comparison, swimming is less strenuous. There is less probability of a sprain or a fracture in swimming.
  2. Body workout: If you are looking for a complete body workout, swimming is what the doctors have just advised. The different strokes in swimming ensure maximum muscular movements. Every part of your body, from head toe, are involved in swimming. Running, however, is not a complete body workout.
  3. Joint problems: For people with joint problems or associated conditions such as arthritis (especially Rheumatoid Arthritis), running might be highly uncomfortable and risky, aggravating the problems further. Under such circumstances, swimming comes as a much-needed breather. Not only is it safe, but also comfortable (people with severe arthritis should, however, consult the doctor before swimming). Swimming is an excellent exercise for improving the motor skills and also building on the core strength.
  4. Calories burned: Finally some good news for the runners. If you are looking for a high-calorie burnout (where you have to sweat it out literally), running is what you just need. Swimming also helps to burn the calories, but running has a slightly higher impact. As per a survey, you burn close to 700 calories by running for seven miles per hour. Surprising, you burn only 550 calories (per hour) by swimming 50 yards per minute.
  5. Bone health: If swimming is good for the joints, running is important for your bones. Running plays a pivotal role in improving and increasing the bone density in a person.
  6. Hormonal effect:  Swimming or running both are believed to improve your cognitive abilities. Endorphins, which are commonly known as the ‘feel good’ hormone and is known to lift your spirits. They enhance your mood like never before.

Both swimming and running come with their own sets of merits and demerits. Choosing between the two can be an uphill task. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Physiotherapist.

I had dry sex with my girlfriend. I didn't penetrate inside her ,in fact I didn't even ejaculate but my precum touches her private part. After 4-5 days her period was started. But after 1.5 days it was stopped. She said she had experienced this short term period before. But after that she is feeling nausea. So we are scared. Can precum makes her pregnant? Please answer fast. Thanks.

Hello- As per you details the girl has faced her menses after your sex, so there is absolutely no chance that she might be pregnant. Stoppage in menses is the first sign of pregnancy.

Dear user. I can understand. If you have irregular period or are not sure when you ovulated, you can do a URINE HOME PREGNANCY TEST 14 days after you last had unprotected sex. However for accuracy of result, it is recommended to do the test 21 days after intercourse. To TEST PREGNANCY AT HOME simply add urine to a small piece of soap, if froth forms, or if the soap bubbles up, the test is positive. Mix ¼ cup of tuna juice and ¼ cup of vinegar in a plastic cup. Now pee in a separate cup and then add your urine to this mixture. After a few minutes, if the color changes to green, then you are pregnant. Take care.

Faint line says that she may be positive for pregnancy, for confirmation of pregnancy get beta hcg test done. It will confirm the pregnancy. And if she is having pregnancy then she needs rest, as this pain should not be there in pregnancy, slight pain may be present. Also in case of pregnancy consult a gynecologist nearby, and tell her about your queries so that she can help you with medicines required. All the best.

4 Ways In Which Sugar Affects Your Skin

4 Ways In Which Sugar Affects Your Skin

You often consume a much higher amount of sugar than you should actually, as it is widely present in a very high number of foods and beverages. Research suggests that this excessive sugar consumption may ultimately be very harmful for your health - and that it may badly harm your skin. Experts believe that too much intake of sugar can make your skin look wrinkled or dull, and also lead to a host of other skin-related disorders. Here are the ways in which excessive sugar consumption affects your skin:

  1. Causes inflammation: Inflammation, caused by excess sugar intake, can be really damaging for the body - especially because it negatively impacts your immune system, and may lead to frequent breakouts on the skins and increased chances of pimples or warts.
  2. Increases wrinkling: Sugar's inflammatory properties not only lead to breakouts on the skin, but also cause wrinkles. Collagen, which is essential for healthy, supple skin, is broken down by sugar, which makes the skin look dehydrated and dull, also increasing the chances of premature wrinkling.
  3. Causes imbalances in blood sugar level: Excessive sugar consumption causes irregularities in blood sugar levels by initially increasing sugar levels, which then reduces when insulin in released into your cells. It often ends up making you hungry, moody or shaky and increases stress levels leading to dull looking skin.
  4. Leads to occurrence of acne: Increased intake of sugar results in stimulation of hormone levels which raises sebum production and in turn affects growth of skin cells. This may be reason of acne.

Hello, If one had sex with her girlfriend after intercourse the girl is feeling like she is pregnant in that condition what to do? She didn't want to pregnant.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Wait for the next menstrual period. If she menstruate then there is no pregnancy. If not you need to check it with preg colour card. If positive you have to do abortion. Medicines are there bt they are not soo much effective and soo mny hazards complications are there. Soo wait for the next menstrual date. Wait atlst 7 days from the expected day of menstrual period.

Successful pregnancy is only after the union of ova and sperm. There is absolutely no chance of getting pregnant. If there is any problem in the next cycle, contact me or a doctor locally for immediate solution.

Hello- Home pregnancy tests comes positive after 10 days of missed period at the earliest so your test results can be false positive, you have to repeat it few days later. Still it does not mean that you are pregnant, as slight delay in periods can be due to hormonal disturbance, a weak digestion, or due to over exertion schedule particularly this month.

Is it ok to have blood clots during the initial days of menstruation. .does this affect fertility in any way.
lybrate-user, During menstrual cycle the thick uterine lining breaks down and bleeding occurs. Chemicals to break clots are also secreted, but if flow is more, some clots do escape. That is quite common. It has no bearing on fertility. Thanks.

Hello, you should be stopping meprate completely and withdrawal bleeding should be attempted only after 10 days of missed periods else it shall further irregulars your cycle. You seem to have pcos, so should be treated for the same first before pregnancy should be attempted.
