Should I walk for an hour every day or run for half an hour three times a week? Posted on May 20, 2023 by Anonymous Should I walk for an hour every day or run for half an hour three times a week?
running or jogging really melts it off so i would run but i know you didn't say "or run every day" but I would jog every day and then walk and then jog and then walk until you can jog an hour
you're not getting any younger. don't waste time
Do the walk daily for mental health. Throw in some light jogging after twenty of walking and just take it easy. Maybe after a few weeks you will be jogging 10 minutes every day.
Depends how well you respond to running.
I would say you should shoot for 6000-10,000 steps a day. Maybe run it some days walk it others. I personally just alternate forms of cardio rower (25 minutes), running (20), walking (90), repeat. Averages out to about 105 minutes a week of quality cardio and some active recovery. Then I got skateboarding to work and walking places on top of that. Variety is nice and mediates the tedium that usually leads to me falling out of habits as much.
am igmi? (and this is with full-time employment, otherwise it's 10s of K more)
pretty good tbh, thats about the same amount of calories as a 4-5 mile run
Thanks guys 😀 I fucking love walking, and my calves, tendons, and joints are all nuts because of it. I used to have bad knees and ankles, then became a fat fuck and it obviously got worse, running half a km was a joke, 1km might as well be impossible. Now I can run fasted half marathons at a 6"/km pace (last one was 5'59")
Walking works, guys.
Ascend and take the hikepill anon.
yeah that's decent about 7k more and you're at Okinawan farmer levels before they modernized very good for longevity
Turning walking into a regimine is so fucking dumb. It's walking. "Gotta get my 10k steps!" Just walk if you feel like it; it's not cardio.
LISS cardio is cardio and all competing bodybuilders swear by it
>it's not cardio
anything that raises your heart rate is a form of cardiovascular exercise. the benefits you receive walking daily are worth it when compared to a sedentary lifestyle or even someone who only lifts. heart health is very important, not to mention side benefits of walking like running into people in your community, making friends and socializing is healthy for our brain function and as a result our body chemistry. I know it wasn't your intention to demoralize cardio workouts anon but anything is better than nothing and walking is just fine.
it's 'active recovery' which I know gets bandied about by a bunch of meme dipshits but I feel like it works at least for my knees and shins. It's time outside away from the computers so even if it's 400-500 kcal time sink I think it's worth it.
walk, if you have the chance to have uphill walks or stairs add them to your walk at least once a week and you've BTFO any rooner
Walk 1 hour every day.
Walking is easy on your body.
jump rope 30 min a day
You should rollerblade, all day every day. Go hard.
Hop on the stairmaster 80 steps/min for 10 minutes.
60min fasted walks on your 4 rest days per week jfl if you're not Martin Berkhanmaxxing by doing this
Both. Walk in the morning, run in the evening. If you have time for it this will change you entirely
I walk four hours five times a week, try that see how it goes.
