How to get up to 660 muscles moving

How to get up to 660 muscles moving

The winter is almost over and most of us cannot wait for spring because it brings new energy and nicer weather for outdoor activities. If you don’t feel all fit for running or gym after the tough winter, walking might be gentler and more beneficial substitute for another sports activities.

Walking is the most natural movement for the human body. You can increase the pace as much as you like and if you involve your arms in the movement, you can move up to 660 muscles. In short, walking is the ideal sport for all ages and fitness levels.

The number of steps has become a socially accepted measurement of physical activity and barely anyone is missing a smart watch on his wrist to track this activity. However, the desirable 10 000 steps per day are based on a Japanese marketing campaign that took place in 1964 before the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Yamasa, a Japanese company, was the first one to create a pedometer Manpo-Kei, that was designed to motivate people to greater physical activity.

But if we want to improve our health with walking, the distance doesn’t really matter. The walking pace, breathing, and our heart rate are important and often much more significant than any specific number of steps. And if you decide for a walk, exercise in your garden, run in a park, or a bit of cycling, don’t forget to pack some energy with you and enough suitable fluids.
