How To Burn More Calories While Walking

If you want to increase the calories you burn while walking, you’ll need to either walk faster or increase the intensity of your walk.

For example, climbing up a hill or stairs is a good example of increasing intensity. Here’s a great article on interval walking, which can really help you increase how many calories you can burn.

There are additional ways to burn more calories that are fun and challenging. Try walking backwards or walking on the beach. Both can help you lose weight and build muscle.

If you are new to fitness walking, start out slow and easy. Walk for ten minutes if possible at a pace that is comfortable for you. Increase your time by one minute every other day or two or when you feel comfortable.

After you can walk for thirty minutes at a time, you can begin to increase your speed.
