There’s a phenomenon amongst contemporary Normie women called “the hot girl walk” they basically flex that they’re going on a walk as a healthy habit. My question is, is walking even that good for you ? I do a lot of strength training but I don’t really do cardio. Am I missing out ?

    It is, it’s just not strenuous enough to make significant gains unless they’re hiking trails.

      Walking and jogging isn’t about making “gain” it’s about being more healthy.
      Running just once a week doesn’t give you gains but the health benefits are transformative.
      IST is not actually a fitness bird because most people here don’t regard something as IST unless it results in hypertrophy or increasing 1rm.

        I used to have violent intrusive thoughts and harm thoughts for a couple months, if you don't know it's those random thoughts you have of jumping when you're in a high place or stabbing your loved ones, but constantly and for seemingly no reason. I hated life and lived in fear until I decided to go outside and join in on walks with my sister. It was probably the best cure for being afraid of every little thing in the world since you go out and realise there is very little to be afraid of. Being in nature is also just calming, since your so focused on your changing surroundings you can't ever spiral on any one thing. Unironically considered suicide at some points and doctors that I spoke to were only able to listen to me rant over the phone because of covid. Some other stuff helped, but walking outside was a big help. Thanks walks.

      Walking are definitely amazing for you mentally and get your thoughts in order.

      However there are times you might wish to listen to a podcast or audiobook just as an easy way to get through stuff you otherwise mightn't be inclined to. I admire the thoughts running free thing at times, but as some people note if they let their thoughts run free it's fucking all over. A third alternative would be to start walking with something important in mind you want to think out, like planning something so you have a goal in mind. Allowing your mind wander completely you can end up not really thinking anything at all other than maybe twitter arguments.

    If you don't do cardio then yes walking will benefit you greatly, as it would the majority of people. Understand though that yeah it isn't very taxing so maybe add in some more rigorous stuff like jogging/running or any other form of cardio you can do intensely.

    The colon is the third most underutilised punctuation mark, behind only the dash and the semicolon.

    For example: "My question is: Is walking even that good for you?" Perfect opportunity for a colon, and I hate to see it missed.

    Basically, whenever you are actively referencing something, you can use a colon. If you're referencing something someone is saying: "Then Anon said:". If you're referencing a question you have: "My question is:". And, evidently, if you're referencing examples of referencing where using a colon would be appropriate.

    As far as your question goes, walking is a part of any balanced fitness regime. There's this thing called "the walking gait" that are only supplemented by strength training and cardio, the only way to truly train and improve it is by walking.

            cant have a line break in a regular string, numbnuts. also "Return" is not the keyword, there is no capital. Also missing semicolon and Console shouldn't be capitalized either. lol is not a property on the object.

            semicolons result in less errors because there are some cases where you need them because it can be ambiguous. it should all eventually be minified anyways (with semicolons) before served up to the client given that it's FE code. so avoiding semicolons technically doesn't help efficiency.

          how do I use a semi colon

          See above: The ideas are fairly independent, but connected enough that maybe you feel uncomfortable totally ending the sentence. Although, in fairness to Vonnegut, either a hyphen, comma, or period will always be able to substitute a semi-colon, and they don't really make much sense in terms of them being named after, but functionally unrelated to, colons.

            Also, speaking of, I threw out half a book because of his stupid rules for good fiction writing. I think it's better off for it, but still kind of a bummer. Basically, I had this whole build up to explain the MacGuffin, and I realised that I could really start closer to the end (one of his rules), so I threw away the background and now it just starts with a phone call about the MacGuffin that kick starts the action of the plot.

            Vonnegut was far from a primadonna, and therefore I think a lot is owed not only to his humility as an author, but to Knox Burger, one of his early editors. Knox Burger, basically, was a literary agent who hated reading, so if you came to him with rambling bullshit he'd tell you to trim the fat.

    Yeah you are. 10 000 steps a day is the key to getting shredded. The only downside of it is that it's time consuming.
    Other than that it's easy, you don't burn out. Such effortless way to add another 300-400 kcal to your deficit. Basically you don't even need to go on a diet, you can eat your "normal" TDEE then just add 10 000 steps to that to reach a solid 300-400kcal cutting deficit.

    cardio is obviously and of course good for you
    but moving creates an interesting effect in the brain and especially peripheral movement that suppresses your fear receptors and makes you psychologically more relaxed
    so there is a less obvious benefit but any exercise with movement can do that.

    Women nowadays are all fat lazy cunts that need 2 cups of coffee before even leaving their disgusting unkempt apartments to go slave away for Mr Shekelestein then go home and nap for 2 hours because they eat dogshit for food that they believe is healthy, then maybe take a walk after another cup of coffee and they think that is exercise because they're so fucking fat and disgusting and lazy. Walking is literally a normal bodily function like taking a shit, it's not exercise. If your heart rate goes up from walking on level terrain then you're a fat fucking pig and you should stop fucking eating

          When we say "exercise" we mean an activity done expressly for the purpose of training the body. For someone who sits down in front of a screen for 16 hours a day and then sleeps the rest, then yes, walking is now an """exercise""", but the whole point is, it really fucking shouldn't be an exercise, and that it's pathetic that it constitutes exercise for some people. Imagine being such a piece of shit that a normal bodily function is something you call exercise.

          >Yeah bro I'm about to do some training by walking to the toilet and forcing out a shit log, gotta get my exercise in for the day

          Look how low we've sunk for fucking WALKING to be considered "exercise". If you're gonna call literally any activity that involves motion of the body "exercise" then the word loses meaning, which, it seems, is what retards like to do with all words and then get mad when you correct them because muh gatekeeping is bad.

            Nobody was talking about walking to and from a toilet you fucking retard. We were expressly talking about walking long distances.
            Which is an excercise regardless of your subjective opinion on what excercise is.

            You are wrong.

              Yes, I know. I brought it up. Sorry, I thought it was clear that I brought that up for the purpose of demonstrating how stupid the kind of reasoning that makes taking a short walk an "exercise" by taking it into a more ridiculous extreme. It might not even be that ridiculous because there are probably plenty of people whose only walking is getting up to eat and take a shit most days.

              What we are talking about, in this thread, is women bragging about going for leisurely strolls, dressed up in plastic athletic clothing. And we're talking about anon (

              I got rangebanned by a girl I like because she heard me say walking is not an exercise

              )
              who was given the silent treatment by someone when he told them their walking was not exercise. I think we can all reasonably assume that this person who got buttblasted wasn't going on 20 mile treks. Which we'd all agree is basically exercise.

              Even so, bear in mind that before we had cars and all that, people probably walked 5 to 10 miles a day, every day. Today we'd call 10 miles an exercise for sure, but in the past that would be quite normal.

              Yesterday I walked about five miles, not for exercise, but because I needed to go somewhere, and my car was in the shop, and no buses went where I needed to go. I don't consider that exercise. And if we collectively do consider what is a normal and healthy amount of walking to be "exercise" then that is not a good sign. Hope you understand what I meant now

            Even in ancient greece and rome writers like galen understood walking as an exercise. Walking up a hill is mentioned as a "strength" exercise as it will build leg muscles if you hike over varied terrain with many inclines. How it this hard to understand

              walking up a hill is way different than stacy and becky walking for half a mile taking photos of themselves the whole way. An exercise in narcissism, perhaps.

              Not sure if you're defending the thots or arguing semantics here. I hope it's the latter because we should all agree that people celebrating a short walk is pretty retarded.

    Walking is just the healthy choice over driving or taking the elevator because moving your body is a lot better for you than sitting. It’s not strenuous enough to be cardio and it’s pretty inefficient. Like you can walk and burn roughly 100kcal a mile, 3mph, without really raising your heart rate much. If you want cardio then you can run or bike, get your heart rate high, and burn the same amount of calories in less than half the time. It’s also pretty boring to walk by yourself, but if you have a friend or family member to go with then it’s a lot of fun. Hiking is different of course, every vertical foot climbed takes roughly as much energy as walking a dozen feet horizontally.

    If you're doing no cardio at all, yes, you are. Walking in general is a great destressor and meditative on it's own, let alone the health effects. You're built to walk. Go do it.

    Before long you are doing 20km any given evening, and suddenly you can run 5k, then 10k, then 22k without ever training to run. Walking is unbelievably based and I wish more anons would do it.

    Oh, and when you get home you have 2000 new calories to either eat or put toward your cut.

    I have been walking to and from school since the age of 6. We are talking an hour of walking ~8000 steps a day for ~15years. My university is an hour away, so now-a-days I walk 2 hours ~15000 steps a day.
    What do I have to show for it? Hardly anything. Mostly developed calves, and I will admit everything below the belt feels and functions great, but believing that starting today 30mins of walking is going to do wonders for your body is wrong unless you are an absolute lardass.

    Walking is barely an exercise and all it does for me now is minimal mental benefits
