So that's Power Walking
Thursday, March 14, 2013
In an answer to my question yesterday, WHat IS POWER WALKING, Thanks to MT-Moonchaser we have found this to be the answer....
Power walking or speed walking is the act of walking with a speed at the upper end of the natural range for walking gait, typically 7 to 9 km/h (4.5 to 5.5 mph). To qualify as power walking as opposed to jogging or running, at least one foot must be in contact with the ground at all times It does not say anything about heart rate that I found, so Iím assuming that has not as much to do with it.. So I do not wog, jog or run if Iím power walking... So My next question is then in the Sparks fitness resource center site they have a blog about a walking test. According to it at 17 minutes a mile, for my age Iím boarder line fair to average so I sure would like to see how those others who rate higher walk to make their steps faster with out running or jogging... What do they do?
