6 Ways to Ramp Up Your Walking Workout

Try Nordic Walking

Grab some walking poles and you'll tone your triceps and burn more calories. In fact, using poles can torch 20 to 25 percent more calories than heading out without them, according to research conducted at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. To get the most from your workout, bend forward slightly from the ankles and swing the poles so the one in your left hand hits the ground at the same time your right foot makes contact, and vice versa.
