The Walking Workout

The Walking Workout

Initially, walk short distances until your body becomes accustomed to the activity. Gradually pick up the speed of execution to challenge your body and achieve a training effect. Walk at least three times a week for up to 45-60 minutes per session.

Be progressive in your walking workout. Walk to increase the speed and distance after you have passed the initiation phase. However, if you fitness walk, don't go beyond 4-5 days per week. For most individuals 3-4 days per week is ideal. Some studies have shown that the risk of injury increases on the sixth and seventh days of exercise, and, more important, the fitness benefits are minimal. For bodybuilders, however, speed of execution is very important. Go as fast as possible for as long as possible 3-4 times per week.

If fat burning is your main desire, increase either the distance or the time of walking together with speed as much as possible. Fast walking for a long time is extremely fatiguing, so don't do it for the same amount of time as you would a slower walk. If time permits, walk 5-6 days a week for the greatest fat burning benefits.
