Cardio Exercise - Walking The following is a short description, the targeted body muscles/areas, and suggested ways to Incorporate Walking in your Fitness Plan.

Walking is one of the easiest, most versatile, and most profitable cardio exercises to be fit. All you Need to Walk is a good pair of shoes, comfortable clothes, and desire.

Walking is a great way to learn about how your heart rate reacts to different exertion levels since it's easy to monitor and control how hard you work. It doesn't matter if you Walk Outside (e.g. Hiking) or Indoors on the treadmill (especially if the weather is poor) since you will get just as much exercise.

Targeted Fitness Goals: works the gluts and all the muscles in the leg - quadriceps and hamstrings in particular.

Incorporate Walking in your Fitness Plan: Walk for at least 30 minutes, 3-4 days a week. If you get the hang of it, add five minutes to your walks (total walking time of 35 minutes). Keep adding 5 minutes until you are walking as long as desired.

Keep in mind that the more times you do this Cardio Exercise in a week, the higher your health benefits will be.
