7 Amazing ways to Easy lose weight from walking

5. Change the gradient

Expect to burn around 30% more calories by adding even a small gradient to your walk. It’s a no brainer that you’ll expend more energy walking uphill but a third is a worthwhile hike.

You’ll work hamstrings (backs of thighs) and glutes (bum muscles) more by walking uphill too.

Pro tips:

  • Taking smaller steps can lessen the impact on joints as you climb uphill, well as helping you to keep your balance.
  • You may find yourself naturally leaning in as you tackle the hill – a small tilt’s okay but always try to keep torso positioned over hips.
  • No hills? Try the treadmill. Aim for a 3-5% incline while keeping your speed fairly brisk.
