Burn Fat with Low Impact Workouts
Low-Impact Workouts with a Big Calorie Burn
The Workout: Walking
Calories burned: 181 for 45 minutes (140-pound woman at 3.5 MPH on a level surface)
Trainer tips: Walking engages almost every muscle in the body, says celebrity trainer Holly Perkins. If you’re an exercise newbie, start with an easy 10-minute walk in your hood and add 10% more time each week. Ready to upgrade your leisurely stroll to a calorie scorcher? Try speed changes—alternating slow and fast walking—or hike a hill. If you are walking on a curb, go up and down the step as you go for added resistance.
