Use these tricks on tonight’s walk! You should soon notice the difference.
1. Pick Up The Pace
A fast walk translates to a speed of walking about 4 miles per hour. This rate will not only burn more calories but increase your oxygen intake. Build up gradually by speeding up for 1-2 minutes, then slow your rate for 5 minutes. A brisk walk is much easier on your joints as well.
2. Jog At Intervals
Jogging for long periods can be hard on the hips. But, jogging at intervals offers something for everyone. Again, start gradually. Make sure you are wearing shoes that provide the proper support.
3. Short Burst Of Fast Running
This exercise will expend the most calories. Mixing up sprinting and walking is even more effective than jogging. Tr a 30 second burst once a day, then build to two, and finally, to three. After you’re able to do this, increase your spurts to 45 seconds then to 60 seconds. Make sure you always warm up and cool down. Shoe support is a must.
