Walking is simple, free, and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier. And the best part is - You don't even have to walk for hours. The recommended amount of exercise for adults is 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. That breaks down to 30 minutes of exercise over five days a week. ⏰
Studies have found that regular walking to fulfil the 150 minutes of moderate physical exercise every week recommended by the UK's chief medical officer could not only build, shape, and tone muscles of the legs, hips, buttocks and back but also save 37,000 lives each year. It could also lead to nearly 300,000 fewer cases of type 2 diabetes.
Amazing isn’t it? Here are few tips on Your walking technique:
· Engage your core muscles;
· Stand up straight (trying not to lean too far forward or backward, with your chin parallel to the ground);
· Let your arms swing naturally and roll through your foot from heel to toe.
Have a lovely walk! ☺️👟🧭
