    CORRECT WALKING Believe it or not there is a correct way to walk. Your steps should start at the heel, move to the outside of the foot, then rolls off the big toe. Correct posture is always important when you walk. The ideal walking position is to hold your head erect, keeping your back straight, letting your arms swing freely at your sides, and taking long, easy strides.
    WALKING is an effective exercise when you walk at a pace of 3 to 4 miles per hour for at least 20 minutes. It allows the heart to pump blood more efficiently, improving blood circulation. Walking causes your calf muscles to contract, causing more blood to circulate from your feet to your head. Walking helps your lungs develop a greater capacity, easing breathing and improving the entire respiratory system. It also helps tone your legs, thighs, and abdomen.
