Aim for a walking speed that's about 75 percent of your maximum effort, meaning you can speak in choppy sentences. Depending on your level, that may be a very brisk 4.5 miles per hour (which burns 403 calories* an hour) but -- and here's the golden rule -- try not to let it dip below 3 miles per hour (211 calories an hour). That's the point at which women drop below the moderate-intensity exercise zone, the minimum you need to do to get cardio benefits from your workout.
