    What to do: For the next 5 days, take a 15 minute walk outside during your lunch hour

    The challenge you're going to tackle this time is adding more walking into your day. When most people think of exercise, they think of very intense forms of exercise that demand a high degree of energy and effort.

    They don't think that walking could ever 'count'. The great news is that it can and it can make a big difference in the results that you see. The trick is to get into a regular habit of adding more walking to your day. Every little bit will add up and over time, will produce noticeable results.

    Let's look at why we've created this challenge for you today.

    1. Walking – The Perfect Form Of Exercise

    The first reason why we've chosen walking as our challenge is because this could very well be the most perfect form of exercise. Anyone can do it – fitness master or basic beginner, and it's very low impact so if you have any joint pain or other problems, it shouldn't interfere with these.

    In addition to this, walking will get all the major muscles in the lower body movement and if you pump your arms fast enough as you move throughout the workout session, you'll get some upper body recruitment in there as well.

    2. Easy Ways To Get Walking In

    To help get more walking in, think outside the box. This doesn't have to be taking a walk first thing in the morning or immediately after lunch. While doing 15 minutes at both of those times during the day is a great way to get started, don't overlook other times when you can get more activity in.

    This could be walking to the furthest bathroom away from you while at work, walking to check the mail instead of driving, walking to pick up a movie rather than ordering one right from your TV, or walking while you talk with a friend rather than grabbing coffee.

    Walk everywhere that you can. This is one of the most powerful age-reducing secrets available and will also help to boost your cardiovascular fitness level and lower body strength.

    gotta get back into the walking routine...fell out of it during the 100 degree heatwave and never got back to it...

    It's stupid how if I don't participate in these challenges, I don't do the activity. But knowing I can check in and get points actually "makes" me do them. Hopefully I can develop some subconscious consistency as a result.

    This is a great challenge. I might have to join it again once I finish. It pushes me to get out there.
  • G33kEmpress 3379 days ago
    After getting off my night shift, I didn't manage to walk too much... or so I thought. But then I remembered I went shopping earlier. That's half an hour of leisurely walking -- plus, I park far :)
