Walking. It is the oldest exercise in the history of man. Long before the combustible engine, we had walking as the means to get from one kill of a Woolly mammoth to the next.
Walking is the most common form of locomotion for us bipeds. We walk because it’s free and convenient. But let’s not bore you to death about the history of walking.
This series is going to outline everything you need to know about walking for weight loss: how to do it, what to do it, and what benefits you should expect to see.
First things first, who should use walking as a means of exercise for weight loss?
This guide is designed for beginners. If you have never been to a gym, do not know how to exercise, or generally have never been exposed to how fitness works, then this walking for weight loss guide is for you.
Many people with exercise and fitness experience will probably frown upon walking because it’s too slow or boring. That’s fine, especially if you have a means of exercising that is going to burn more calories faster (Running, Basketball, Weight lifting, etc)
