THE NO-EXCUSE WORKOUT!
Walking is the “no-excuse workout,” because all you need to do is step out your front door. You don’t need any equipment, and it’s easy on your joints.
Join me in today’s 30-minute fat-burning walk! This audio routine use a series intervals in our walk which are short bursts of higher-intensity activity, followed by a period of lower intensity active recovery. This pattern allows you to burn more calories and improve your overall fitness level. And who doesn’t like the sound of that?
Don’t have enough time to walk?
Some people simply have less time — or are less willing to invest a lot of time– in exercise. Then, there are those days when you’ve only got a half-hour of breathing room from the moment you get up until your head hits the pillow again. Well, 30-40 minutes is all you need for a walk.
If you use that breathing room for some heavy breathing — on a day when you otherwise wouldn’t have done anything — you’re taking a big step toward consistency.
Walking doesn’t have to make a big dent in your time budget.
Your workout time is minimal, and there’s not driving to and from the gym. In a pinch, you don’t even have to change clothes or shower.
Just put on your walking shoes, take a fast spin around the neighborhood, and pick up your day where you left off. Or, walk to work, on errands, or out to dinner.
