Running and other high intensity exercise has generally been considered to be the best way to stay in shape and keep yourself healthy. While it is true that running is more effective at losing weight and keeping in top shape, a number of doctors and medical researchers released a report this week that indicates that frequent walking might be all that is actually needed to promote heart health. This is absolutely great news because walking is significantly easier to do, much easier to get started in, and will still offer the healthy benefits of more strenuous workouts.
Doctors are quick to point out that simply walking slowly won’t do a lot of good, but a quick pace will do wonders to promote a healthy heart and healthy lifestyle. Doctors are continuing to recommend that patients get as much exercise as the can by this study is definitely helping motivate people to at least get out there and walk. Walking is still great exercise that can improve quality of life and lead to a longer more fulfilling life so go out side and take a walk; it might keep you strong and healthy for years to come.
