Our answer:

Grab a pair of dumbbells prefer. The arm muscles is hardly stressed while jogging. "Only if your arm muscles are extremely underdeveloped, it comes jogging for muscle growth"Explains sports scientist Karl Quade by the Federal Institute of Sport Science in Bonn.

Muscle Building is only by hypertrophy. If you strain your muscles unusually strong, the body reacts by building muscle mass. "By endurance are first consumed carbohydrates and fat later. therefore jogging regularly will reduce your body fat percentage."

A positive side effect: Your arm muscles occur after some time become more obvious. Sports shops there are, incidentally ankle weights that you can wrap around the arms. You can enjoy while running to use more energy and charge you with the weights your arms stronger.
