Walking is one of the best forms of exercise. It is one of the few exercises that both men and women can do and its one of the easiest ways to shed off all those unwanted pounds. Doctors even believe that walking everyday can keep your heart healthy and prevent type-two diabetes.

For those looking for the ultimate walking exercise we recommend power walking. Whenever you go power walking you want to make sure that you have a good pair of tennis shoes and socks. You want your shoes to be comfortable to prevent any soreness early into the walk.

Another thing that is very important to bring on any walk that you go on is a bottle of water. You will be burning a lot of calories during the walk and you need to make sure that you stay hydrated. We don’t want anyone collapsing halfway into the walk.

Pace is very important when it comes to power walking because it is what will help you burn all those calories. Start off at a pace that you can handle and every day or every other day increase it till you have reached the pace that you want to stick with. One of the best speeds to work towards is 4.5 miles per hour. This is proven to burn just as many calories as if you were jogging.
