Burn All-over Fat With WALKING

You'll tone your legs and butt as you flab with this fun aerobic activity.

Equipment/instruction needed: A good pair of walking shoes and comfortable clothes is a must. A pedometer is also a great ideas, as many fitness experts are advocating that people strive for 10,000 steps per day for maintaining good health as well as burning calories.

The pleasure of walking: The health benefits associated with walking are impressive. This activity improves cardiovascular efficiency, lowers blood pressure, relieves stress, reduces body fat, strengthens leg and abdominal muscles and could even improve the quality of your sleep. You’ll improve your muscle tone and strength with a walking workout. It tones and strengthens calves, thighs, ankles and feet, as well as arms, shoulders, abs, hips and buttocks. Walking also does its part toward preventing bone loss, which in turn can deter the development of osteoporosis. You’ll burn up to 240 calories per hour when you move at a 3-mile-an-hour pace. Best of all, walking is one of the best ways to cheer up a blue mood.

The pitfalls of walking: There is always a risk of injury while walking. Be careful that you don’t step on an uneven surface and twist or sprain your ankle. There are also safety concerns: always walk in a well-lit site with plenty of pedestrian traffic and let a friend or family member know where you are going and when you are expected to return. Some then can notify the police if you haven’t arrived home within a reasonable amount of time.

Make this move: Try power walking at a brisk pace around a track or your neighborhood. As you walk, squeeze your butt as you plant your heel on the ground, then push off from the toe. Also walk uphill regularly to further firm and shape your butt.
