Jogging vs. Walking for Recovery

During the games the announcer (Everett?) noted that Matt Chan was jogging back to the rope after pushing the football-ish sled, and that it was better for his recovery than walking.

Can anyone point me to the research that supports this statement?

Re: Jogging vs. Walking for Recovery

He was jogging to make the best time possible, no other reason. The idea it improves recovery when exhausted (vs. walking) is not accurate.

Can you disprove Josh's theory, simply saying its not accurate generally isn't a valid arguement.

Im not an expert and havn't studied in any pathways, but from my own experience when doing wod's jogging/walking are definitely more efficient recovery methods than sitting down.

I'm looking for evidence to support the original statement. The burden of proof is on the claim.

Well somehow I doubt sitting down would have helped his time...

Some movement is great for recovery, but in that competition it want recovery it was time. Chan jogged back because he felt he could, wanted a better time, and did it, he wasn't thinking "I'll jog back so i feel better rested and recovered"

He jogged back thinking "if I don't move faster, my time will be terrible, and I may not get on the podium and get paid"

Re: Jogging vs. Walking for Recovery

As far as recovery, the idea is based on heart rate stuff.

If your not going maximal the jogging is better than walking


Ie 8x400m runs @ 75% with 200m jogs in between
4x400m runs @ 90% with 200-300m walks

For your HEart rate to recover on option 2 within said time/distance you will need to walk. With option 1 you can jog and see better results...

Re: Jogging vs. Walking for Recovery

i totally agree chan did the jog to better his time, however time had nothing to do with josh's comment/theory and more along the lines of recovery, if we put Josh's comment in a different text and outside of the games jogging vs walking for recovery what would we come up with?

Re: Jogging vs. Walking for Recovery

Not that my thoughts mean much, but jogging does rely more heavily on glycogen stores than walking does as well as generating higher blood lactate. As far as how it actually feels to do near 100% anaerobic activity and then go to walking immediately after I don't know. I tend to enjoy doing high intensity and transition from sprint>jog>walk>stop. Just because immediately slowing down doesn't feel very good to me.

Drew, what you just stated is not what I said?

In terms of jogging being better than walking, when you are in an oxygen deficit from intense exercise as those guys and gals were doing something that requires more oxygen is not the optimal way to climb out of the deficit. They had to move in order to conserve time, and jogging is great if you can do it and still recover enough to keep going, but I don't imagine jogging would improve your oxygen debt situation relative to walking.

Re: Jogging vs. Walking for Recovery

And I will add the caveat I could be wrong. I'm putting forth an educated guess.
