Walking faster is the easiest way to improve intensity. Though obvious, there is an optimum way to do things.
Interval exercise will push your body to its limits and let it recover, improving your long-term endurance. Walk fast for one minute, then equalize.
Walking up a little slope may make your workout harder without putting you in danger. Hip and hamstring strength, walking mechanics, and foot striking promote posture.
Mild resistance strengthens muscles, bones, and joints without stress. Holding a weighted vest or backpack straight engages your core muscles.
Regular bodyweight workouts might also boost fat reduction. Your walk around the block will seem like a "total-body" exercise.
Before walking, warm up your muscles and joints, even if it's not cold or wet. Dynamic stretches, activation drills, and foam rolling can avoid soreness,
cramping, overuse injuries, and other exercise-related discomforts. To avoid waking up stiff from your workout, stretch and foam roll now.
Walking on a concrete sidewalk is different from walking on a woodland trail with ups and downs and other natural challenges.
You'll burn more calories and strengthen your lower body, especially your feet and ankles, on the different surfaces. Once a week, walk in a park, trail, beach, etc.
Tyring also strengthens and staminas your muscles, bones, and joints. Walking five minutes more every week helps prevent overuse issues.
