Benefits of Walking

I burnt 111 calories by walking for 30 minutes on a tread mill after my work last night. I inclined it to 3.0% and my average speed was 2.94, I walked about 1.6 miles or 237 feet on a mountain climb. Not bad right? I wanna grow old healthy so I can still see my kids have their own families and enjoy life with my loving husband. Isn't it nice if we have a bodilicious like this? Well, we sure can have one like that if we do exercise even once a week... Walking is an activity we do everyday everywhere. There's no great trick to walking.. It doesn't require any special skills or advanced conditioning. Some health benefits of walking include:
  • burns almost as many calories as jogging
  • eases back pains
  • slims your waist
  • lower blood pressure
  • reduces levels of bad cholesterol
  • reduces heart attack risks
  • enhances stamina and energy
  • lessens anxiety and tension
  • improves muscle tone
  • easy on your joints
  • reduces appetite
  • increases aerobic capacity
  • can be done in short bouts
  • slows down osteoporosis bone loss
  • and can be done when you're travelling

  5. First and foremost is self discipline Lou, watch out for your calorie intake, go for a walk even just around the house or in the back yard if you don't have equipments and stay away from sodas and sweets..

  6. Yeah it does kwagoo because when you walk, it makes our backbones stronger.. at least from what i remember on the article that i read.

  7. Hello Ate Cecille, I guess too much sitting in front of the computer is a culprit too in adding some pounds in us.. So, we should make sure to balance the sitting and the walking.
