Activate Your Abs
BEFORE AND DURING YOUR WALK
Studies show walking is one of the best ways to banish the belly bulge, in less time than you may think. By walking briskly for just 2 1/2 hours a week (about 20 minutes a day) you can shrink your belly by about 1 inch in 4 weeks.
In order to get the most out of your walk and turn it into an ab-activating workout, it’s important to focus on turning on the muscles in your core both before and during your walk.
STEP 1: BEFORE YOUR WALK, ACTIVATE YOUR ABS WITH THESE 2 MOVES
When your core muscles aren’t activated before your walk, your form suffers and you not only increase your risk of injuries during the workout, but you also won’t get the most benefit out of your routine. During a walk, you’re typically targeting your glutes, quads, and thighs. When you simultaneously engage the core, you stabilize your spine, which allows you to pick up your pace.
How do you get the core firing? Before you walk, try these two exercises… I like these to moves because they’re anti-rotational and help stabilize the spine…. GET STARTED… 2 AB-ACTIVATING MOVES
STEP 2: EVERY 10 MINUTES DURING A WALK, CONCENTRATE ON THE NEUTRAL SPINE POSITION
When you engage your core during a walk, you’re using your transverse abdominis. That’s the core stabilizer, and it runs horizontally across the abdomen. It’s essential to recruit these muscles for good posture…and a sleek physique! Think of your transverse muscles as your built-in Spanx. The transverse muscles stabilize your pelvis and help you balance and move your legs during your walk. Engaging your transverse will also allow you to further increase your speed, pump up your power and burn more calories.
Every 10 minutes during a walk, engage your transverse abdominis with a “TA Isometric Neutral Spine” for 30 seconds by pulling your belly button towards your back while maintaining a neutral spine, which means you’re not arching or rounding your back.

Walking Audios to Turn Your Outdoor Walk Into a Workout
6 WEEK WALKING MAKEOVER is a complete aerobic program designed around walking. It’s a true “no-excuse workout.” The program consists of five audio workouts that incorporate a dynamic concept called “periodization.”
In simple terms, periodization is a valuable tool that can help you get the most out of your exercise program, especially if you’ve hit a plateau.
It works by varying one or more of the three key aspects of your workout… length, activity, and intensity.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
It’s easy to follow, and each week adjusts either the duration or intensity. By changing what you ask your body to do, this program challenges you so you can keep making fitness progress.
✅ WEEK 1 – Build the foundation by developing proper walking techniques.
✅ WEEK 2 – Enhance stamina and endurance
✅ WEEK 3 – Burn more calories with short interval bursts
✅ WEEK 4 – Challenge the intensity with longer intervals
✅ WEEK 5 – Add resistance training to the end of the walk
✅ WEEK 6 – Prepare to walk for life with intervals that are closer together
