Changing speed while walking helps to burn more calories

Changing speed while walking helps to burn more calories

Walking is one of the most popular exercise, especially for those who want to lose weight. Even because it is an effective and low impact exercise, ideal for anyone who is overweight. But many people believe that it may not be enough to burn calories, and they eventually evolve into the race for better results.

However, scientists have discovered that there is a simple way to increase the caloric expenditure of simple walking: change speed According to researchers at the Ohio State University in the United States, they realized that this variation in speed can increase calorie expenditure by 20 percent, while stopping walking and resuming walking increases calorie burn by 8 percent. reaching these conclusions, experts asked volunteers to walk on treadmills in the laboratory and monitored the metabolic cost of these changes. But instead of changing the speed of the treadmill, they asked the volunteers themselves to change the pace of their strides, now walking close to the front support of the treadmill, now going further to the back end of the treadmill. to make these changes of pace, the patients' metabolic cost, that is, the caloric chaste involved in this activity, was greater than just walking at the same pace constantly. It is as if you are pressing the pedal to accelerate the car, that is, it demands more energy from the body. The findings were published in the October issue of

Excess exercise is just as harmful as physical inactivity, says study

Excess exercise is just as harmful as physical inactivity, says study

Numerous studies have already proven that practicing physical exercise is one of the secrets to increasing longevity. But everything has a limit. This is because overtraining, the so-called overtraining, can be just as harmful as the sedentary lifestyle. According to the authors, who were part of the Heart group of British Medical Journal (BMJ) Saint Luke's Mid America Heart Institute and the University of Queensland School of Medicine in the United States, although regular training is beneficial, overkill can make it more harmful.
