Tips For Exercising

Walking, swimming, cycling, jogging, skiing, aerobic dancing or any of dozens of other activities can help your heart. They all cause you to feel warm, perspire and breathe heavily without being out of breath and without feeling any burning sensation in your muscles. Whether it is a structured exercise program or just part of your daily routine, all exercise adds up to a healthier heart. Take the first step by walking. It’s free, easy to do and when you have a walking companion, you’re more likely to stay motivated.

Incredible! What Happens When You Walk?

For some of the interesting—and even incredible—things that happen when you walk more every day, read on, because we lay out of a handful of them right here.

Slide 2 of 8: According to the American Psychological Association, "self-efficacy" is defined as one's "belief in his or her capacity to execute behaviors necessary to produce specific performance attainments; [it] reflects confidence in the ability to exert control over one's own motivation, behavior, and social environment."In short: It's confidence in yourself and your abilities. According to Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN, Head of Nutrition & Wellness at WW, walking more every day—and making it a central component of your routine—is a surefire way to get more of this coveted self-assuredness. "Walking can be a tool in building self-efficacy," she says. "In general, starting a new routine around an activity can help you build confidence in your own skills and abilities—and walking is no exception."What's more, research has shown that if you walk with a more confident posture, you'll actually improve your own confidence. So walk tall, walk more, and feel your confidence flow! And for more great walking tips, check out these Secret Little Tricks for Walking More Every Day, According to Experts.


Why Not, Exercise Before Breakfast!

Slide 1 of 5: The early bird gets the worm, but what does the early-morning exerciser get? A lot, apparently. Working out before breakfast isn't just a great way to hit your fitness goals first thing in the morning—some research has associated the practice with unique benefits that you might not get by working out at other times of day.Before we dive into those benefits, some caveats must be noted. Many studies exploring exercise and time of day are limited to small human trials or mouse studies—meaning that their conclusions aren't necessarily definitive. Additionally, lots of the findings are conflicting. "The research is all over the map on the best time to exercise, mainly because research is looking at all different types of benefits from stress management to weight loss and body composition," Bronwyn Bacon, ND, shared with ACE Fitness. Depending on your body, your goals, and the type of exercise you love, you may see lots (or zero) benefit to switching up the time of day you work out.All of that is to say: The best time of day to work out is the one that works best for your schedule. If you're not a morning person, forcing yourself out of bed to hit the pavement before you've had coffee is hardly conducive to a sustainable fitness routine. But if you're an early riser—or are interested in shaking up your fitness—there are some potential benefits to working out before breakfast for your health, your mood, and more. Read on for what they are, and if walking is your exercise of choice, don't miss The Secret Cult Walking Shoe That Walkers Everywhere Are Obsessed With.
