This is one of my favorite podcasts! And hey, listen to it while walking!! :)
I looooove walking! Clients always think that they need to push harder, do high intensity interval training and do more cardio to get results and lose body fat.
The truth is, it's individual!
As you'll learn from the podcast, walking has many many benefits. Not only does it burn calories, it helps you recover from your strength training workouts.
In the hierarchy of fat loss, mindset is #1, nutrition is #2, strength training is #3, and cardio comes in at #4.
First off, if you don't have a mindset that believes you can achieve your goal, self sabatoge awaits. Being mindful of self talk and creating serving thoughts is essential!!
Next, you can't out-train a bad diet. Studies show that the harder people exercise, the more their appetite goes up and the more they justify eating more food.
Strength training is #3 because the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn at rest! You want muscle!! **Don't worry girls...we can't get big unless we take drugs**
Focus on 1, 2, and 3 and add in easy walking. It doesn't stimulate your appetite and will help you feel better!!
Take a listen and add walking to your daily routine for good health!!
