Complete walking/aerobic workouts 3 times per week
Think of your walk in three parts:
- Warm-up/walk slowly for the first block of
- Increase your speed for the brisk portion
- Finally, cool down by walking slowing for the last five minutes
Stick with listed workouts, increasing as recited. Stretch before you walk with warm-up exercises. To avoid stiff or sore muscles/joints, start gradually and build up as outlined on this guide sheet.
Walk with your chin up, your shoulders held slightly back and so that the heel of your foot touches the ground first. Roll your weight forward. Walk with your toes pointed forward, swing your arms as you walk.
If you walk less than three times per week, increase the fast (brisk) walk time more slowly.
You may want to wait up to 1 hour after morning (cardio) workout before eating to maximize fat loss/burn
