Walking-feet-pictures-of-feet-walking-clipart-2Remember after your strength training, your glycogen stores are depleted and your body turns to another energy source, FAT!!!

So walk twenty to thirty minutes after your lift and let your body burn that fat for energy.

Supersets Before Walking

weight lifting

Try doing a superset before your walk.  For example, try a superset of squats followed by military press 3x, then go walking.

For those of you who don’t know what a superset is, it is doing one exercise immediately followed by another exercise without any rest in between.

So in this case you would do 10 reps of squats followed by 10 reps of military presses. Then rest and repeat the exercise two more times for a total of 3 sets.

When your done, hit the pavement and start walking.

Experiment with different exercises but I would highly recommend supersetting a lower body exercise with an upper body exercise.

Pick up The Pace

Once you’ve been walking for a while, try increasing your speed for a more intense workout.  This will help your mitochondria grow and increase fat and sugar burn creating more ATP, energy.

The Hills Build Muscle

After you’ve become an advanced walker, pick trails or take walks that have hills.  Hills hit the muscles at different angles causing the muscle fibers to respond.

The muscle response is endurance and muscle growth.

How to Get Ripped Walking

is-glycogen-a-carbohydrate
Walk after you lift or strength train in order to get ripped.  After resistance training your bodies glycogen stores are drained.  Glycogen is your muscles’ stored sugar.

After lifting weights the glycogen stores are depleted.  As a result your body has to tap into its fat stores in order to get energy.

THAT’S WHEN YOU WALK!  After your done with the weights.  Your body will burn fat for energy.
