How to Overcome Obesity in 12 Weeks : Overcoming Obesity: Proper Walking Form

Hi. My name is Angela Martindale. And I’m
talking to you about how to fight obesity in 12 weeks. I’m going to teach you how to
walk correctly so your knees don’t hurt, your back doesn’t hurt and it stretches out your
muscles in your hip flexors for optimum results. You’re going to step onto the treadmill. Press
start. Speed the treadmill up to 1.5 to 1.8. Allow your body to get used to the motion.
Because what happens is you might feel pain in the back of your knees. And it’s because
there’s a lot of weight. And your hamstrings are tight and you need to give them a chance
to warm up to a treadmill. You don’t walk on moving ground so allow your body to adjust.
Begin to squeeze your gluts, press through your heels and then up your incline to 1.
Begin to press through your heels, squeezing your abs in. Now your speed is still at 1.5.
And you’re going to hold it here for about 3 minutes. After 3 minutes you’re going to
take your speed up to 2.0. Now you’re going to begin to press through those heels feeling
your gluts. Taking long deep strides. Okay? I don’t want you on the treadmill with small
strides. You have a big space here. Spread out your steps. Press through your heel to
toe. Squeeze those abs in.
