Walk Don't Talk

by Laura Menhennett

The talk test for the intensity of the effort for the benefit of walking is great to know about. I shall pass it onto my friends that talk the whole walk!


The information on a good way to test of you are walking too slow is the 'talk test'. This simply means that if you can talk whilst you are walking the intensity isn't high enough!

The mildly hypoglycaemic state pointers are good to know too, like using the walker at the gym AFTER the work out and not just as a warm up.

Finally the hand and foot weights, I thought the hand weights would be helpful for the upper arm muscles to work on that 'second wave'... I will now need to find another way to work on these...

Great articles, thank you.

I enjoy reading your articles. If only I would go and apply what I have just read. Some days I do, then others days I cant be bothered. If only you could buy motivation.

Comments for love reading your articles

creating motivation for your workout routines
by: Steve

Hi Christle,

Nice to hear from you.

What you're experiencing is very common!

However, even though everyone's motivation fluctuates from time to time the key is how to limit the 'down time' that we all have.

I find the best way to do that is to simply write down your reasons for wanting to change in the first place. Also, write down the consequences of not changing!

I call this, 'carrot and stick motivation'!

Also, when it comes to getting out of bed each morning to go to the gym to perform my workout routines, I simply 'just do it'! I try not to think about it too much, but simply roll out of bed, put my training gear on, have a strong coffee and go!

I find that if I lie in bed too long I can easily find an excuse not to go.

Youy may also want to get an 'exerciuse buddy'; someone who is also committed to achieve their goal and who will be waiting for you at the gym and who you don't want to let down!

Christle, I wish you all the very best with achieving your weight-loss goal. Stay motivated, take one step at a time and enjoy the process!

All the best!

Steve.

Walking CAN Help You To Lose Weight!

Very good post.

You raise some very important points. Exercise doesn't have to be painful or a chore to be effective and walking as part of an overall weight loss strategy certainly does work.

Warmest regards

WALKING

Thanks Steve for all the useful tips. I walk on a treadmill and do normal walking at a reasonable fast pace then do sprints every 3-4 mins with the machine on incline. I will now try the walking early and delaying my breakfast. What do you think is the amount of time/kl needed, and can you say do 15-20 mins then another 15-20 mins later in the day or should it all be done at once. Thanks, Karen.
