What You Need To Know About Walking

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.
