Walking as an exercise?
September 2, 2012 11:07am CST
Now, now, yeah I admit it, I often do the proper exercising (once in a blue moon maybe). Hmmm but I came to think, if walking is considered as a good exercise too? (Yeah I have read a few articles about it, but I want to hear your own experience). I do it a lot, my only way of transportation to the office is riding on a jeepney. Whenever I get off from the jeep, I still need to walk (so that's my way of exercise, like it'll took me 300 steps, or more) not too sure, I'll check it later and get back here tomorrow for update tehehe. So, is walking back and forth (going and leaving the office) good enough without the proper exercise, like what the others are doing?

The usual way of walking that is considered to be beneficial is called brisk walking. You may wanna check this site on what is the pace of brisk walking compared to normal walking. http://walking.about.com/od/workouts/a/Brisk-Walking.htm

Walking is great exercise. Maybe you do want to go a little further though. I have a treadmill at home because the weather around here makes it difficult to walk - it's either too hot, too cold, raining or snowing. And the roads around here aren't meant for walking. You have to walk on the shoulder of the road and it slopes causing my ankles to hurt. Keep it up though, do what you can!

I think that's enough of an exercise a day if you really don't have the time to do full sets of exercises. 30 mins of walking a day already burns you about a hundred calories, so if you do it twice a day, you already burned approximately 200 calories a day. Plus if you monitor what you eat, taking control of what you intake, you will decrease your weight. I just want to tell you that it is a long term commitment if you're thinking of decreasing your weight. If you're quite in a hurry, maybe you should do jogging and a bit of weight lifting for like thrice a week. Just don't forget to monitor what you eat then you'll end up smiling.
