30 Minutes of Walking a Day Can Help You Lose Weight! Try These Indoor Walking Workouts
While high-impact, fast-paced workouts like running or cycling can help with weight loss, they're not essential! Walking as little as 30 minutes a day is an effective form of exercise to help you reach your goals. That's because it not only burns calories, but also it's so simple and easy to do anywhere. This means you're more likely to stick with it regularly, and consistency is the key!
NASM-certified personal trainer Courtney Meadows told POPSUGAR in a previous interview that in order to lose weight with walking, you want to make sure you're getting your heart rate up to 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate (you can figure out your target heart rate here). You should aim for three to five workouts a week, and if you can't get outside to walk, try these indoor walking workouts — no treadmill needed!
