Walking the dog BLASTS CALORIES
Taking your pup for a stroll is a surprisingly effective fat burner, notes May, a master trainer at Burn 60 Studios in Los Angeles, where she helps Naomi Watts and Reese Witherspoon slim. Indeed, scientists found people walk 28 percent faster with their dogs. This uptick in speed boosts metabolism enough to help dog owners lose 14 pounds more a year than those without a dog.
“Swing your arms as you walk,” suggests May. This will engage the deltoids to sculpt the shoulders.
