Why Ride When You Can Walk?

Posted on April 21, 2012 at 10:10 PM

  Aside from your regular brisk walk workouts, make use of extra helpings by walking most of the time. Avoid riding when taking short distances you can travel by walking. Don't be lazy and always stop your car right in front of your destination or stop the bus exactly where you want to get off. Try getting past a block or two and start walking. Why ride when you can walk?


If you have a pedometer to measure your total walk distance per day, try walking lots even after your walking workout. Walk up and down your house as you do chores, walk around the yard and garden, walk to the grocery store, walk to the mall, walk to pick up the kids from school if it's walking distance, even walk to the office, and take the stairs always if you have to go different floors to different offices in the building.

 

Just walk, walk, walk. I won't be surprised if you get a reading of an 8-mile walk a day from your pedometer. That's great walking time! Some folks who can't walk outdoors due to some walking problems are sometimes advised by doctors to spill at least 20 stuffs on the floor and pick them up one by one, telling them to do this several times a day.

 

If you're that sort of person and you're looking for some doable workout to do in your living room, try this Walk Slim tip: One-step climbing.

 

Now, what's a One-Step Climbing?

 

If you can't walk around outdoors, I don't think you can also climb up and down stairs. So you should try a one-step climb Walk Slim exercise.

It's easy to do. Go to your stairs and slowly make one step up with your right foot. Carry the left foot on the step and stand on both feet on it, and then slowly step back down to the ground with your left foot. Do this repeatedly, alternating on both feet.

 

Do this 3 sessions in the morning and 3 sessions in the afternoon, 3-5 minutes per session, or as your body can tolerate.

 

You think this Walk Slim exercise is too easy for you?No problem! We have something else for you!

 

Do the same exercise but with a bit of variation. Instead of walking up slowly, hop rapidly alternating with your left and right foot, each just touching the stair step and then landing on the ground floor.

 

If that's still too easy for you, try them with dumbbells in both hands, with weights of your preference.
