Add Power to Your Walk
Rev up your routine, with our 35-minute Walk Circuit that can be done alone or in conjunction your regular walk. It includes
resistance moves for the upper and lower body, plus abdominal and back exercises.
The Game Plan: Do this workout two to three times per week, resting a day in between to let your muscles recover.
You'll Need: A walking area outdoors with staircases or benches along your path. A school track that also has bleachers is a great option.
Warm-Up: Walk for five to 10 minutes at an easy pace to prime your body for action.
Circuit: Do one to three sets of each of the following moves, interspersed between walking bouts of two to three minutes. Walk at a moderate pace; you should feel slightly breathless. During the lower body moves, especially the stair climbing, you'll be working even harder.
Cooldown: Walk slowly for five to 10 minutes.
