Walk Off 10 Pounds This Month
Burn Fat: Steady-Pace Walk
Aim for a speed at which you're hustling but still able to speak in sentences (your rate of perceived exertion, or RPE, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is sitting still and 10 is a full-tilt sprint, should be about 6 or 7). Depending on your fitness level, this will be somewhere between a 13- and 17-minute mile, which will keep you in the exercise zone.
Maintain this pace until you've reached your time goal, and not only will you burn more calories, you'll boost your heart health.
Calories burned (45 minutes): 182 (17-minute mile) to 302 (13-minute mile)*
*Calorie burns are based on a 140-pound woman
