It’s time for some changes in the walking routine you have. In this way, you won’t need a diet and also you can forget about spending hours at the gym. All you have to do is just call your friend and start walking! Or maybe you can play your favorite track and keep going.
This will entertain you in order not to get bored. So, shall we start?
Lose your weight with walking
The most important things for losing your weight in this way are your weight and the walking pace. By walking at a pace of 4 miles/ hour you can lose around 400 calories. Amazing, right?To do this, you can use a pedometer.
It will help you to have better control over your weight loss, so you just have to put it on your hip and it will be recording the number of steps you take.
How many steps to make?
2.000 steps are equal to 1 mile. You will burn 100 calories by walking this long.
3.500 calories are equal to 1 pound, so if you are willing to lose a pound in one week you will need to burn 500 calories in one day.
The math is: you need to walk 10.000 steps if you like to lose 1 pound.
Keep the style of walking right!
If you like this exercise to be effective then you have to be careful in the way you do the walking. There is a precise style you have to keep. You need to keep your eyesight 100 feet forward and your stomach tight. Another thing to do is squeezing your glutes and chin too. Remember this!
How long should you walk?
If you replace your exercising with walking, then you should start by taking a walk 3 times in the week for 15 – 20 minutes. After a while, you need to increase the walking to 30-60 minutes each day.
Important: Before you start walking, it is important to consult with your doctor first!
