The professor reveals four special techniques for taking a real walk
Ease, a noun that defines walking, that is, it can be done in parks, avenues or even in a neighborhood. Despite this well-known advantage, there are those who confuse the purpose of this mode. Walking therefore does not mean walking, and the coordinator of the Physical Education course of the Universidade Positivo, Zair Cândido de Oliveira Netto, will transmit four walking techniques in an interview given to Sport Life.
First of all, what is the aid that enhances the gains deriving from walking?
“Bodybuilding. Its tendency is to increase muscle mass. By increasing muscle mass we also increase our basal metabolism, which is the energy we expend even at rest or even while we sleep. So, walking three or four times a week, for at least half a day an hour and associated with weight training once or twice a week, already brings a great benefit in promoting weight loss”, responded exclusively to Sport Life, the endocrinologist from the Estância do spa Lago, Dr. Fabiano Lago.

Reduced disease risks
A sedentary lifestyle compromises health and physical exercise is fundamental from a metabolic and cardiovascular point of view. So the suggestion for sedentary people is to start with a few minutes, which already substantially reduces the relative risk of disease.
“For beginners, moderate walking is preferable, not at an intense pace due to the adaptation of the cardiovascular system. Whenever we begin physical activity, a medical examination is essential to check your physiological conditions and your attitude to physical effort, in this At the beginning of an activity like walking, even if it is a common practice, we must plan and monitor its intensity,” said Zair.
“At this more intense pace, the body struggles to provide the necessary oxygen to the moving muscles, resulting in an increase in heart rate. This change brings a number of benefits to the health of the cardiovascular system,” highlighted Oliveira Netto.
Walking is enough to work several muscle groups, and over time this strengthening impacts your leg muscles, which include your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves.
“These muscles are responsible for maintaining an upright posture during walking, helping to strengthen the core of the body. A strong body is essential for stability, balance and injury prevention,” reiterated Cândido.
“By incorporating both structured and recreational approaches, you can enjoy the physical, mental and emotional benefits that walking offers. It provides a perfect balance between body care and appreciation of the moment, making it a practice that combines physical activity and free time in harmonious way”, concluded Zair Cândido de Oliveira Neto.
