Let's Walk In 2012! Add A Vest And Melt Even More Pounds
You don't need special training to walk. As health/wellness expert, Jillian Michaels says:
"Walk! You can do it anyplace, anytime.".
Jillian's right, ladies. Happy New Year! Let's walk in 2012!
Walking is a super easy, inexpensive form of exercise. And it does a body GOOD, says Dr. Craig Williams a sports science lecturer at the University of Exeter in England. He told the British UKDailyMail.com this:
"It can improve muscle endurance as well as muscle strength, especially in the lower body.
"It is good for bones and improves the body's cardiovascular system. It also helps boost circulation.
"Power-walking - keeping a brisk pace at moderate to high intensity - can burn the same amount of calories as jogging or running. So it is useful for helping with weight loss.".
And, he adds: "Because it is low-impact, it does not have the same potential for injury as jogging. Yet it can offer all the benefits.".
You can also add this little article of clothing to your walking work-out----a vest, and watch pounds melt away quickly.
The Walkvest. It's a brilliant idea---weights are placed in the vest to help the wearer drop pounds. TV star Valerie Bertinelli wore a Walkvest while on the Jenny Craig diet plan to melt away even more lbs and to tone up.
The Walkvest costs just under $70, but then again, what a smart investment for the new year.
