3. Add in body weight exercises
Incorporating simple body weight exercises into your walk will help you achieve weight goals in two ways: firstly, you’ll be burning a higher number of calories while on your walk but you’ll also be helping to boost metabolic rate, so you’re burning more calories at rest.
Stick to compound moves (those that work multiple muscle groups) to get the most calorie-burning bang for your effort buck. Walking lunges will work the entire lower body and can be seamlessly integrated into the shortest of walks. Ditto wall and bench push ups, while the park bench plank is a relatively straightforward add-on that acts as a total body toner. Combine all three and you’re looking at top-to-toe conditioning without even breaking a sweat!
