Walking posture is very important. It can make you slim, beautiful, stylish, and stylish.

1.1 Be consciously straighten your chest and raise your head, and the chin should be slightly retracted, and your shoulders should be relaxed and naturally expanded.

Be sure not to hunch or arch your back, and don't bow your head to play with your phone, otherwise it is easy to collide with people, collide with cars, and fall into a pit accident.

Hunchback will also destroy the body's balance, bowing your head will increase the pressure on the cervical spine, thus greatly reducing the sports and weight loss effects of walking.

1.2 Be consciously tightens your abdomen and clamps your buttocks.

If the muscles are not tense, you cannot effectively stimulate your abdomen, buttocks, and legs muscles. The small belly will always be loose, and the beautiful curve of the buttocks will not come out, it will always be a drooping "disheartened face".

1.3 Be consciously exert force with your hips.

Use your hips to drive your thighs up, instead of pushing the ground with your calves, or dragging your calves without leaving the ground.

2. Swing Your Arms
A lot of the walking speed comes from the arms. The swinging of the arms generates power and kinetic energy, drives the body forward, helps burn more calories, and strengthens the upper body's strength. When walking, bend your elbows 90 degrees, swing your arms back and forth, and keep your shoulders relaxed and naturally slightly back, allowing your chest to expand and maintain the best posture, allowing walking to achieve the greatest effect.

3. Land on the Entire Foot
When walking, land on the entire foot, land on the heel, roll the entire foot forward, and let the arch, metatarsal and toes land in sequence, and lift the toes off the ground.

Landing on the entire foot makes walking more powerful, burns more calories, and allows the calf and thigh muscles on the back to join the movement, giving you a more slender leg muscle line and a more beautiful and firm hip shape.

4. Increase Walking Stride
To take walking as a weight loss fitness exercise, you cannot be as lazy and casual as usual when walking, you need to appropriately increase your stride.

Only by walking fast and meteorically forward, can you effectively stimulate your thigh muscles, and raise the heart rate during walking to enhance the aerobic exercise effect.
