Wheeling Walks Challenge: Week #3

Warm-up and Stretch by walking normally for 5 minutes to increase your heart rate slowly. Then for 20 minutes walk briskly,. Remain erect, taking full strides and swinging your arms easily. Cool down with a 5-minute slow walk to lower your pulse safely.

Walking is the best stretching exercise for walking but here are some other stretching techniques you can learn. Remember, stretching is most effective on "warm" muscles, so walk for a few minutes before performing these stretches, or perform them as part of your "cooldown" routine when you are completed with you walk.

This week concentrate on stretching!
