Walking and Weight Loss Tips

If you want to get the most out of walking, then do it on an incline

The vast majority of people walk on a flat surface, whether inside or outside. If you want results, don't do this!

You'll be walking a long, long time if you ever want to see noticeable results walking on a flat surface. To get some fast and noticeable results, you need to find some hills or set your treadmill on at least a 15-degree incline.

Once you are walking on an incline, you don't need to bother with how fast or hard you are walking. Just walk at your normal pace.

Set a goal for 20 minutes a day, 4 times per week.

Walk Up and Down Stairs

This is even better than walking on an incline. Use the stairs in your home or building. All you need to do is walk up and down stairs for 15 minutes straight. And do it every single day. If you already walk up and down stairs in your every day routine, that doesn't count.

To see results, you need to be doing this non-stop.

Walk Backwards On a Treadmill

Don't set the treadmill on an incline for this. That's not something for beginners. All you need to do is walk backwards on the treadmill. Walking this way burns more fat because it confuses your body.

You can do this in intervals. Try one minute walking backwards followed by one minute walking forward. Then repeat. And do it for at least 10 minutes straight a couple times per week.
