It's time to reinvent your walking routine! Switch the pacing in your walk to stay motivated and active.
Listen to this podcast from Kathy Smith for a 30-minute guided Slim & Strong walking audio! This 30-minute guided walk will teach you how to pump up the pace turn your walk into a fat-burning workout.
You already know that incorporating walking into your exercise routine is an easy way to...
• Lower LDL cholesterol
• Reduce risk for high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke
• Control blood sugar
Here's a simple guideline to follow to help you amp up the amount of calories you burn during a walk... Add B Strong BFR Bands.
- WARM UP - Warm up for 5 minutes.
- PUSH - Push yourself almost to your maximum for 15, 30, or 60 seconds.
- ACTIVE RECOVERY - Continue to walk at your normal pace while you actively recover for twice the amount of time. For example, if you pushed for 30 seconds, then have a 60 second active recovery.
Once you feel comfortable and established, you can build in strength by adding resistance, incline, or speed. Follow with rest.
This type of training is called HIIT, "High Intensity Interval Training." It uses “bursts” or “push” sessions that alternate intense levels of exercise and brief recovery periods, in timed intervals. The protocol yields amazing results. Just ask any speed and performance athlete.
HIIT workouts can change your workouts, your body, and your weight.
