Give your workout routine a fresh start this fall. These four power walks will melt away fat while toning your entire body in less than 30 minutes. You can choose to do them indoors or out, and try a different walk each time you work out to beat exercise boredom.
“Athletic striding smokes hundreds of calories when you boost the pace, duration and intensity,” said fitness expert Petra Kolber, creator of the “Step by Step Strength Training” DVD. “Exercisers underestimate how fast or how far they can walk, but you’ve got to push it to maximize fat-burning and muscle-toningbenefits.”
When you perform these walks, track your rate of perceived exertion, a scale that indicates when to bump up or decrease walking pace for faster results.
