How walking can help us to get fit?

Do you know, you can get fit just by walking. Yes, walking is a great way to get fit. Walking is absolutely free of cost and very simple to do. Walking doesn’t require any additional equipment or a gym membership.

I spoke with my trainer and he shared a very simple and basic training schedule which can be done very easily. One thing which is required most while doing any exercise is motivation, so keep yourself motivated and got for it.

You can do the changes just by making few simple changes like taking steps instead of the lift. Avoid using your uber app for small distances, opt for a walk instead.

However, before doing any changes listen to your body, if you feeling very low or you feel it will so many miles then scale it back as per your body needs. You can download apps as well to keep track of whats going on in the entire day. Here is your basic plan for a month which you can modify as per your body needs.

Plan Breakdown:

Brisk walk: The goal for this is to build your stamina. After a five-minute warm-up at an easy pace, maintain a moderate pace and then complete your walk. As you build your stamina, keep increasing its pace.

Cross-training: Do another form of cardio other than walking, like swimming and cycling.

Power walk:  Follow a 55-minute, fat burning interval walking routine to help improve your speed and endurance. And, as you become more fit, aim to increase your mileage in the same amount of time.

Weight training: Try to lift the weight, as per your stamina. Try to work on your complete body.

Floor Exercise: This is the day when you need your entire body to be active. Do exercise like planks, pushups, squats. Try to work on the whole body.

Strength walk: The goal for this walk is stamina and aerobic base building.
