We all know that exercise is important. Experts now recommend that you put in at least 30 minutes a day and mix it up with both aerobic and strength training. A great way to do this is by walking.
Why? Because most people can do it, very little equipment is needed (just shoes), and it can be done anywhere including your home. Walking is an excellent aerobic workout but with a few tweaks it can become a strength gem as well.
Here are ways to make your walk more beneficial:
Please note that I do not recommend you carry hand weights while walking. These tend to pull your posture out of alignment and can hurt your back muscles.
Fitness does not have to be expensive or elaborate. With just a few small tweaks, even a walk around the neighborhood can get that heart pumping and keep you healthy!
