Walking With Hand Weights Description
Walking with hand weights is an activity which provides an excellent blend of cardiorespiratory and muscular endurance work. The addition of hand weights and deliberate arm movements can increase caloric expenditure while working the upper body more effectively than conventional walking. This activity can be readily adapted to varying durations and intensities of pace. Weight and degree of arm movement can be adjusted to fit anyone's fitness level and conditioning program. This activity can be done outdoors or indoors on a track or treadmill. Always warm-up and stretch before participating in this activity.
