Walking and Running Upper Body Routine

If you're using a treadmill, sculpt your upper body at the same time with this easy, effective plan from Jeanette Soloma, a trainer at Crunch Fitness in Los Angeles. Walk or run for 15 minutes at a moderate intensity (place a set of 3- to 5-pound dumbbells nearby before you begin). At the 15-minute mark, decrease your speed to 3.0-3.6 mph, raise the incline to 6 percent, and pick up your dumbbells. Then do the following moves for 1 minute each, without taking any rest.

  • Alternate Punch: Keep hands at shoulder height, elbows bent at sides, and alternate forward punches with each arm.
  • Hammer Curl: Straighten arms to sides, palms facing in. Curl weights toward shoulders, keeping elbows close to sides.
  • Triceps Kickback: Bend elbows 90 degrees and keep arms tucked into ribs, then slowly straighten arms behind you.
  • Lateral Raise: Keeping elbows slightly bent, raise arms out to sides until elbows are shoulder height.
  • Triceps Rear Press: Bring arms back to sides, palms facing behind you. Keeping elbows straight, pulse arms back.

I think on the whole walking is a far better exercise then running: Looks at walking being far more socially acceptable as well as being a healthy alternative to running.
