Hello, I am 19 years old male. I can’t go to the gym because of my back injury. Doctors said no to the gym. I am trying to build muscles will running help me? Can I build muscle by running?
@margaret-0 Yes, running helps in building muscles. Running can build lower body muscles, but it largely depends on the intensity and duration of your runs. Running primarily builds muscles in the lower body like your glutes, quads, and hamstrings. You should have carbohydrates and protein before running to build muscle. Thank you.
