Are You Walking Long Enough?


According to experts walking is the best kind of exercise that you can do! Unlike jogging, walking is easy on the knees and according to some experts even burns more fat.

How could it be? How could walking actually burn more fat than jogging? I personally don’t claim to have the answer but I will say this – experts advise that if you walk a treadmill or walk outside that you actually have a minimum amount of time that you should walk to even begin burning fat. This “magic time” according to some researchers is around 20 minutes.

If you walk 10 minutes or 15 minutes don’t get me wrong, you are still burning calories and building muscle in your legs but for the fat burning effect you should plan on walking at least 20 minutes a day 3 days per week.

A good routine to follow is 2-3 days of resistance training along with 3 days of aerobic activity. You could lift weights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and walk for twenty minutes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

If you find the idea of walking a treadmill unbearable then there are many other good activities – fun activities – that you can do that will help you to lose weight such as Raquetball, Basketball, Baseball, Football – basically any activity that gets you moving.

Always remember to follow the advice of your family physician before beginning any exercise program. There are many ways that people talk about when it comes to losing weight but in my opinion the best program is one that includes proper eating habits along with regular exercise.

Bill Vlass is not a doctor and does not even claim to be a weight loss expert. Bill at one point however lost 110lbs and he did it by using the methods he writes about in his articles.
