Walking Tips

Here are some simple tips to remember when you are walking.

  • Elbows should be bent. (This will cause your arms to swing faster; therefore your legs can move faster.)
  • Make short strides. Long strides may feel awkward.
  • Think heel-to-toe. Push-off with your heel. Toes should leave the ground last.
  • Abs should be pulled in and tight.
  • Vary your training walks. (Adjust your speed from a brisk walk to a slower walk.)
