Many people feel that although they don’t move, they feel tired than walking. Why is this? In fact, the reason is very simple.
When people are standing, their legs are always bearing the weight of the whole body, and both feet are not relaxed, so it will feel tired after a long time. When people walk, the legs are alternately forced. Usually one leg is heavy and the other is relaxing, so it feels more comfortable to walk than to stand still.
In addition, when walking, the movement of both hands also has an important impact on the consumption of physical strength. The study found that compared with the normal shaking and movement of the hands, the feet will not burn more than 12% of the energy; the hands and feet move in the same direction, and will consume 26% more energy, because the muscle strength is concentrated on the same side. It can be seen that walking in a normal posture requires the body to save some effort.
