Walk It Off: Burn 1,300 Calories Walking
A weeklong walking plan designed to burn 1,300 calories and firm trouble zones that an average walk ignores.
Burn-and-Firm Workout: Heel Walk
Start out at an easy pace (about 20 minutes per mile) for 4 minutes, then alternate doing the tone-as-you-go exercises with 5 minutes of brisk walking (a 15-minute mile or faster). Cool down with an easy 4-minute walk.
Targets: Butt and shins
- Step forward with right foot, landing on heel.
- Keeping body weight centered on middle of right heel as you push off (toes are off the ground; walk only on heels), quickly take a short step forward with left foot, landing on heel.
- Swing extended arms in opposition to legs, matching pace of arm swing to speed of steps.
- Continue heel walk for 1 minute, taking short, quick steps.
