ASK US ANY­THING

SE­RI­OUSLY, ANY­THING AT ALL...

Women's Health (South Africa) - - ASK US ANYTHING -

I know 10 000 steps a day is the aim, but will they help me lose weight? AN­SWER

Do­ing 10 000 steps (or eight kilo­me­tres a day) is im­por­tant for over all health and vi­tal­ity, but when it comes to weight loss, it’s about in­ten­sity too. Walk­ing is a great start­ing point, but as you get fit­ter, high­in­ten­sity ex­er­cise and/ or com­bin­ing walk­ing with strength train­ing will be the best way to get re­sults. Up­ping your steps by an av­er­age of 20 per­cent each week is a fan­tas­tic start. In­ci­den­tal ex­er­cise can also make this eas­ier to achieve dayto-day.

CHAN­NEL “WALK­ING ON SUN­SHINE” FOR A SKIP IN YOUR STEP.
