5 Things When Walking for Exercise

Walking is just walking. Walking for fitness and/or weight loss is an altogether different story as you'll be putting a little more emphasis on how you move so you get the best results from your walk. Here are five tips to keep in mind to make sure your form is correct and that you're getting the most from your fitness walk:

  1. Swing your arms as you walk.
  2. Walk with your head up, and make sure your back is straight.
  3. Keep your abdomen flat.
  4. Point your toes straight ahead.
  5. Walk with a long, easy stride that doesn't strain you.
