High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Burpees, Crossfit, P90X, Insanity and boot camps cannot compete with good old-fashioned walking.
When we stop approaching exercise as a means to lose weight and, instead, as a way to nourish our whole person, we can bring some common sense back to exercise and start making better decisions about how we spend our time and money, and how we treat our bodies.
If you want the best, easiest, quickest and cheapest whole body workout that you can do all day long, look no further than walking. In just 30 minutes, you can get around 4,000 steps, which means your calves, glutes, quads, hamstrings and feet will contract and flex at least 4,000 times.
Walking is a complete lower body workout, and with correct posture and breathing, walking strengthens your abs and lower back muscles with each step. Planks cannot touch the ab workout that walking can provide. Throw in an arm swing and you are naturally and easily working your entire muscular system thousands of times and you don’t have to spend a dime, walk into a gym or pass out in a puddle of sweat.
Walking is all you need to improve your cardiovascular, lymphatic, digestive, neurological and skeletal systems while also nourishing your internal mental, emotional and spiritual connection. Who knew it was this easy and free?
At VIVE Alchemy, we want to show you how your body is designed to work to stretch and strengthen itself easily and naturally one step at a time.
