Power-walking Works Your Muscles and Clears Your Mind For Competition
When you're prepping for a fitness competition, the daily gym grind can become a hazardous exercise in mental pressure.
Take a day off each week and put your mind into a power-walk. You'll work different muscles and gain mental clarity and a sense of calm about competition day.
Five Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Walk: 1. Squeeze those glutes while you're walking. Think of it as squats in motion.
2. Walk with a friend- Great conversations will propel your walk that much faster and stronger.
3. Tighten your core and twist slightly with each step. Abdominal workout complete!
4. Wear shoes with good traction. Treat your feet well. They'll return the favor with pain-free walks in your future.
5. Maintain a steady pace. Keep your gait consistent. It's what defines a "power-walk".
