Power Walking: Lose Weight Without Stress

Exercising can be a very daunting task and the idea doesn’t motivate many of us to exercise. There is a solution to this because there is an exercise that is not stressful, can improve your cardio, and can make you lose weight, power walking!

Power walking is this exercise! I started power-walking to take pressure of my knees, because I used to jog and skip rope a lot which took its toll on my knees, which resulted in me having surgery on my knee.

Benefits Of Power Walking

I didn’t want to continue to put that type of pressure on my knees, but I did want cardio and leg strengthening I gained from running and luckily I ran into power walking. Power walking is a great exercise that when done correctly you can use power walking to lose weight, and surprisingly it will strengthen and tone your legs, stomach, back, and arms. When done correctly, power walking can quickly heat up your body and burn a lot of calories.

Power Walking Technique

Power walking is a total body workout and will tone and strengthen your body without putting a lot of stress on it. The key is to power-walk with correct technique. Using the correct technique is vital to maximize the full benefits of power-walking. Whether you are power walking on a treadmill, the track, or street, the technique is the same. I show the power walking technique in the video below.

Power-walking Instructions:

1) Wear a good pair of sneakers

2) Do some light stretching to warm up

3) Start power walking at a slower pace and gradually work your way up to 3.5 to 4 miles per hour

4) Align the posture by keeping the back straight and the shoulders rolled back and down

5) Bend the elbows and keep them close to the body, while pumping the arms up and down so that the hands come to shoulder height or higher

6) Take short strides, push off the back leg and roll the feet landing from mid-sole to toe. A power walk should last between 20-60 minutes

7) Cool down period at a speed of 2 -2.5 miles an hour
