Changing Your Attitude Toward Walking, Exercising

By lmcph126 | December 30, 2016

Having a bad attitude toward exercising brings bad health. There are a few different ways you can change your attitude and actually enjoy exercising. However, it takes a plan to develop a new attitude.

When we make difficult decisions in our lives many of us sit down and write down the pros and cons and weigh them against each other. You can adopt this popular procedure in changing your attitude by sitting down and making a list of all the ways your goal will give you ultimate happiness and joy.  How it will enrich your life, how amazing you will feel, what you can accomplish, who you can help, how you can inspire friends or family, how it will make your life better in every way.  When you are finished with this list, make another one with all the ways that this will ruin you if you do not do it immediately.  Write down how you will feel, what your self esteem will be like, how you will not reach your goal, how you would not be able to do any of the things you wanted.

And here may be the secret: it is absolutely necessary that you understand and feel just how awful your life will be if you do not exercise.  The more pain you associate with not doing your activity the better. The more pleasure you associate with accomplishing this activity, the better.  Take your two lists and read these lists over and over out loud so you can hear the words. You will begin to notice that In a short period of time your body will begin to crave the very thing you thought was impossible which is creating a positive attitude toward exercising. After you start to exercise on a regular basis, say out loud “I really enjoyed doing that and can not wait to exercise tomorrow”. All you are doing is conditioning your brain to what you want and the happiness it brings into your life.

Losing Weight With a Walking Exercise Program

By lmcph126 | July 15, 2016

A walking workout is a fantastic way to exercise. Walking is something that the majority of us do – to a greater or lesser degree – on a daily basis. Apart from a comfortable pair of shoes, no special equipment is required – and you can slot it into your day whenever it’s most convenient for you. There are no monthly gym membership fees to be paid – so it’s also a very cost effective form of exercise.


There are so many health benefits associated with walking that it’s almost difficult to credit that these are available from a low impact, low injury risk exercise format. Consistency is the key thing – low level exercise, performed on a frequent and consistent basis, is considerably better for you than intermittent bouts of intense physical activity.


Walking for thirty minutes, three or four times weekly, on a regular basis will soon generate results that you can feel and see. If you can gradually increase to 10,000 steps a day – that’s between four and a half and five miles for the average stride length – then you will really start to reap the rewards.


There are plenty of opportunities to walk a little bit further each day. If your schedule allows you to fit in a half hour, or even an hour, of walking daily then that’s good. If that’s not practical for you then there’s no need to despair – there are many ways to ramp up your daily number of steps taken.


Leaving the car in the garage and walking to work or school is sound advice. However, if the distance involved is too great then just take the car as normal – but park it in the far corner of the parking lot so that you have further to walk to get to the entrance. If you travel on the bus or the subway then you could get off one or two stops before your destination and complete your journey on foot.


During your lunch break, take a ten or fifteen minute walk around the block. It’ll be better for you than munching a sandwich in front of your computer (you’ll have more energy and be more mentally alert in the afternoon as well). Take full advantage of modern technology and pace about while you’re talking on your mobile or cordless phone. During a single fifteen minute telephone conversation you can squeeze in an extra 1,000 steps. That’s the type of multi-tasking that is genuinely beneficial to you!


If most of your walking activity is fitted into your daily schedule in a piecemeal manner, then you may want to think about getting yourself a pedometer – these are available starting at less than $10 these days. You can carry one of these in your pocket or attach it to your belt. It will allow you to monitor your progress in terms of the number of steps taken, the distance covered or the number of calories burned. Monitoring your progress in this manner might help to keep you motivated and will encourage you to look for other ways to include walking as part of your daily routine.

Weight Loss Fitness – 5 Steps to Get More Out of Your Walking Exercise

By lmcph126 | July 15, 2016

 


 


 


 


Get fit with your walking program. All you need are a good pair walking shoes or cross trainers and your sweat equity.


If you brisk walk, try and walk at least 100 steps a minute. This pace will give you enough intensity to work the cardiovascular system. I like to say to my clients, “Walk hard enough that you breathe hard but you’re not breathless”.


I like using the Nike cross trainer shoes with the built in space for the Nike Sport Kit sensor for the shoe. Although it only works with the iPod Nano series, this little electronic device makes it fun to track steps and calories burned as well as distance. It a talking pedometer but with you can choose a male or female voice, implements your playlist music list.

When walking, keep in mind these points:


– Move It Swift. Make each step quick and efficient rather than long steps.
– Walk Tall. An upright, good posture is important for good balance and maximizing calorie burn.
– Follow Your Breath. Keep looking forward with your eyes at the horizon. Keep shoulders back. Walk confident.
– 90-Degree Elbows. Keep arms close to your body. Keep your thumbs to go no higher than your armpit level and just shy of your hips.
– Leave Them In The Dust. Work on pushing efficiently off your toes and balls of the feet. If someone is watching your stride from behind should see the underneath part of your shoes with each step.


As you can see, you can get the most from your walking workout. Get moving with blood-pumping, body-slimming walking today.
