The experts say that we must walk weekly for at least 150 minutes or 2,5 hours! So we can walk for 30-90 minutes daily. We do not have to walk for the same amount of time every day, but the best is to have walked 2,5 hours during the whole week.
The best speed for your walking is the moderate. You must use 60% to 70% of your stamina. A very good tip to find this limit is to breathe harder than you breathe usually but to have the ability to speak normally in full sentences. You can also find useful applications that have been built for this reason.
It is a very good tip to split your walking duration into periods of ten minutes, because doing so you burn more fat.
Instructions for new walkers
If you are new to walking and you are used to sitting life and very little activity, you must start your walk with shorter periods of time. On a daily basis you have to increase this period for a little amount of time in order to improve yourself and be better over time.
Consistency is the key to burn calories and improve your metabolism. If you feel tired it is not so bad to give yourself a break, but you have to walk the next day. Do not be lazy!
