How to Walk

Walking Program

Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.  Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.  Proverbs 4:25-26

Walking the right way!  Below are tips on walking form to maximize your work out.

Posture

  • Eyes and chin facing forward, not tilted up or down.
  • Shoulders aligned with hips, don't lean upper body or neck forward.
  • Pull abdomen muscles in tight.

Arms

  • Bend arms at a 90 degree angle.
  • Swing back and forth with movement in sync with opposite leg.

Hands

  • Hands form a fist, not clenched or dragging through the air.  This will slow your pace down.

Feet

  • Step placing your heel down first then roll forward to ball of foot, then toes.
