Walking - Inclined Description
Walking on an inclined surface, such as up hills or on tilted treadmills, provides an excellent blend of muscular and cardiorespiratory endurance work. Inclined walking is a somewhat greater challenge than walking on level surfaces. However, both types can be adapted to various intensities and durations to meet anyone's fitness level or conditioning program. Walking is recognized as one of the safest forms of aerobic activity. Always warm-up and stretch prior to participating in this activity.
