A program designed to slowly, and steadily build endurance, fit musculature and a life long pattern of valuable movement.
Your weight is your calculator. In just 12 weeks you will establish a self programmed schedule of walking. Your mileage for the first 12 weeks is defined. Your pace is your choice.
HERE’S THE FORMULA: You weigh yourself and multiply the week’s time requirement by two hundred pound increments.
200 pounds or less = weekly requirement
250 to 350 pounds = 1-1/2 times the weekly amount
250 and over = 2 times the weekly requirement
If you have more energy you may decide to increase your mileage along with your time walking. The choice is yours.
Count Your Steps
The new fitness guides recommend walking 10,000 steps each day. That number of steps translates to approximately 5 miles.
Exercising at a rate to increase your pulse is recommended for approximately 30 minutes per day.
Get a step counting pedometer and wear it each day. You will be surprised at how much mileage you can log just by walking to your various destinations.
