How to burn more calories while walking?
Walking is a super exercise to keep your body toned and heart healthy. Here’s how you can make your walk more challenging and increase the number of calories you burn.
Maintain your posture: relax your back and shoulders, chin up and eyes looking forward
- Pace up: Brisk walk to ensure your heart rate picks up
- Add weights: a weighted vest or backpack
- Swing arms: Keep your elbows at 90 degrees and swing arms back and forth
- Longer strides: This targets the inner thigh muscles
- Take intervals:
1 minute backward walk
1 minute side shuffle
Increase speed alternatively to boost heart rate
