EXERCISE

Walk Off Weight focuses heavily on walking for weight loss purposes. This program uses interval walking, which involves short periods of walking fast followed by periods of recovery. Research has shown that you burn up to six times more fat using interval walking over regular walking. There are several workouts you can use from the book depending on how much time you have. Some routines are as quick as 20 minutes so you will always have time to get your workouts in. The program is eight weeks in length but you should start to see results fairly quickly.

You can also choose to use the resistance band to firm and tone up your body while you are walking. The workouts can be used to boost energy, burn fat and lose weight. Each workout tells you how long it is and how many calories you will burn. Below is the format for the Super Fat Blast walk. This walk is ten minutes in length and helps you burn 70 percent more calories than if you walked at a steady pace. Each workout breaks down the time and then the activity you will be doing during that time.

  • 0:00–2:59 Warm-up, easy to moderate pace
  • 3:00–3:59 Brisk walk
  • 4:00–4:29 Jog
