As much as I’d love to run everyday I can’t. So I am embracing a good walk workout into my weekly schedule.
Today I walked 3 miles and added some bodyweight exercises into the workout. Think about increasing the intensity on your walks to burn more calories, improve your cardiovascular endurance and build strength.
A few things to add into your walks for a tougher workout:
✔️Incline - bridge, hill, ramp, etc
✔️Step downs or step ups - wall, bench, step, etc
✔️Bulgarian split squat - wall, bench, step, etc
✔️Walking lunges or squats
✔️Push ups, mountain climbers, triceps dips to incorporate the upper body
✔️Beach walk or other terrain to add resistance
I also did a little shell hunting and trash pick up along the way to keep our beaches clean. So grab your sunblock and water, lace up those sneakers and enjoy your walks.
