Walking is definitely one of the most convenient ways to get toned and get your cardio workout in your day. All you need is some decent walking shoes and you can hit the pavement, grass, beach, or sidewalk. Do it anytime of day and even grab a friend to catch up on some gossip. So lace up your shoes and start moving! Each of these routines will take just 45 minutes. Remember, you can do anything for 45 minutes!!!
If you are a beginner/BarBellie, try this:
Warm up for a few minutes with a brisk walk. Make sure to swing your arms as these will help you move a little faster. Then you are going to complete 4 minutes of POWER WALKING (this is fast paced walking where you strike your heel to the ground before your toes). Then complete 1 minute of either jumping jacks, pretend jump rope (there will not be an actual jump rope in your hand), or squats. Repeat the 4 minute power walk and then the 1 minute cardio for another 8 times for a total of 40 minutes. Cool down and stretch!
If you are an intermediate, try this:
Warm up for a few minutes with a brisk walk. Then you will complete 4 minutes of power walking and 1 minute of EITHER jumping jacks, high knees, or walking lunges. Repeat this sequence 8 more times for a total of 40 minutes. Don’t forget your cool down and stretching.
If you are usually a runner/advanced, try this:
Warm up for a few minutes with a brisk walk. Then you will complete 3 minutes of power walking, 1 minute sprint, and 1 minute of EITHER- walking lunges, squats, pushups, or dips. After completing this first set, you will complete 8 more just like it for a total of 40 minutes. Don’t forget your cool down and stretching.
