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

                               Knee lifts
