Walking is the most popular form of exercise in the U.S.A.*
People ask me all the time, “What exercise burns the most calories?” I tell them, “The one you will do.” Then they ask me the same question as if I do not understand their meaning.
No exercise will burn calories if you do not do it. Choose something you enjoy and will continue to do in the long run. Haha, a pun. It does not matter what you do, just so you move around enough to feel like you are increasing your heart rate.
Did you read that correctly? …enough to feel like you are working and increasing your heart rate. Not everyone will need to run and some of you will feel like a stroll is enough of a workout.
Yes, that is true. We call this the RPE or Rate of Perceived Exertion. Trust me, you want to exercise safely, right? Safe means you will be able to go back out again and continue for a lifetime.
Best of health to you and goodbye.
