i run a half an hour to an hour 5 days a week. does it tone and build muscle? and i heard it does more than just your legs. is that true?
Yeahhh. It tone your legs, arms, abs a little.. probably even back muscles, and it strengthens your heart too.
this depends are you trying to run fast each day then yes you are getting toned but if you run the same paste every day then no. When you run your cardiovascular system is working and anything that works your cardiovascular tones your abs.
Running in my book is the perfect exercise to get a toned body.
Running tones your legs, your buttocks and somewhat your mid section, but not your upper body. I would recommend to add some light weight training and abs exercise.
