The most common questions about walking are how often, how long and how fast should you walk.
How often should you walk?
Aim for a MINIMUM of 3 days a week when you start walking. Gradually work your way up to 5 days a week. The more you walk, the better, especially when it comes to weight loss.
How fast should you walk?
Although moderate intensity walking is beneficial, a brisked pace walk gives you the most health benefits. Aim for 100 steps a minute.
How long should you walk?
The recommended time for most people ranges from a minimum of 20 minutes for general health benefits to 60 minutes for weight loss. Keep this in mind, the longer you walk over 20 minutes, the more fat you burn.
