Is power walking for you? Walking is a good way to boost your health and jump-start some calorie burn. But should you just walk casually or try power walking? If you haven’t been exercising and are just looking to move a bit, a regular walk is fine to start. But if you are ready to boost your cardiovascular fitness and burn extra calories, try power walking.
Shorten your stride to increase the number of steps you take per minute, and swing your arms at a 90-degree angle. It’s also great if you don’t have a lot of time for a long, leisurely walk. And if you’re not up to power walking the whole time, you can just do a little bit in intervals.
