Tips on WalkingWhen walking for exercise, pay more attention to the way you walk than when you walk in your daily life. Doing so lets you burn more fat and prevent injury. Keep the following instructions in mind during your walking exercise.


Tips on Walking

1Posture
Keep your body in a natural posture (shoulders and pelvis maintained horizontally when viewed from the front, and the ear located straight above the shoulder when viewed from the side). Walk with your head held up as if by a string from above, and try not to bend forward.

2Eyes
Look 10 to 15 meters ahead of you.

3Face
Face straight forward, with your chin tilted slightly downward.

4Hip joint
When swinging your leg forward, make sure that the base of the leg extends properly.

5Knee
Keep your knee straight when the forefoot lands.

6Legs
1. Let the heel land first;
2. Move so that the body weight is applied across the entire sole of the foot;
3. Shift the body weight from the heel to the toes, as if grabbing the ground with the sole of the foot, and take a long stride.

7Shoulders
Keep your shoulders relaxed.

8Breathing
Coordinate your breath to your steps. Practice rhythmic breathing, inhaling twice and then exhaling twice. Inhaling from the nose and exhaling from the mouth makes it easier to breath and helps prevent you from feeling thirsty.

9Arms
Bend your arms lightly and swing them in a compact arc.

10Waist
Keeping your waist as high as you can makes it easier to kick your leg forward. Take a long stride while moving your pelvis back and forth and swinging your arm backward to build up momentum.
