I dont know what its called but i love that machine because you can power walk and do a lil jog at the same time. and its good for the butt :)

    Personally I’m more of a fan of jogging than power walking. I know it’s not as good for my joints but I just find jogging a little more challenging. If I’m ging outdoors to do some exercise then I will usually choose to jog. However, I still try to power walk when I’m actually going somewhere. I find it gets me there a lot quicker :-)

    Actually swinging the arms is really a good workout for the hands. I remembered initially my arms and shoulders got sore very quickly but now I can swing througout the workout and they’re ok. All the vigorous arm swinging really helps- after that, I noticed I could carry more and heavier groceries and walking longer distances without tiring out. Great suggestions.

    I prefer to jog instead but when I’m not exercising, I walk very fast during my daily activities so it’s like power walking in a way.

    I would much rather do some sprints. It’s quick fast and effective.

    However, power walking is still a great workout for people with slightly lower fitness levels.

    Nice art!
    Actually if you powerwalk on the threadmill, you don’t even have to swing your arms; especially if you set a decent angle (4-5 deg)…
    I definitely prefer fast walking than running – hopefully my joints will thank me for that :)

    For weight loss, walking is far far far more effective than jogging. To my knowledge, jogging is maintain body weight.

    In the late 2006, I had to walk home from the bus stop every night for a distance of 3 km (15 – 20 minutes) and sometimes further than that if fall asleep in the bus. For almost three months, my weight reduced from 78kg to 56kg….and you can see the power of walking. I bought new pants every month as my waist keep reducing from 35 in to 28 in.

    I was very happy with my body. After that….got a second car…no more power walking. In order to maintain that, I changed my style of eating habits.

    No more fast foods, mamak food, fried food (not 100%), carbonate drink & processed foods (also not 100%).

    Drink a lot of warm water, eat more fruits (apple, plum, oranges & lemon), vegetables (salad, broccoli, spinach & carrot), oats (rolled oats) and the most important is…..meals prepared by my wife….try to avoid eating outside.

    If wearing a weight vest is good then what about getting a more intense workout while walking if your 60 pounds overweight? I’m walking an hour a day now at a fast pace, but I thought that 2 hours may be better. But, for me, is 1 hour like 2 hours, since I carry that 60 pounds everywhere I walk?
