Thanks to this simple trick, you can turn your walk into a real workout

All you need for this is wrist or ankle weights.

Burn more calories

By adding these weights to your walking routine, you are giving your body a little extra challenge, activating more muscles and increasing the benefits of walking.

It works very simply: you strap weights around your ankles. Thanks to ankle weights, you can increase your strength and endurance. You make your muscles work harder while walking, turning walking into exercise. This makes walking a little harder.

When using ankle weights of about 1kg, the workout becomes about 10 percent heavier so you also burn 10 percent more calories (you can hear the calorie count in the video below). Win-win situation!


Please note: Walking with ankle weights is not recommended without significant walking experience. Ankle weights change your walking mechanics and thus your muscle control. This can increase the risk of injuries while walking. First try walking regularly and then slowly increase the weight. Always listen carefully to your body. If you feel pain or discomfort, stop immediately and consider using lighter weights. Don’t use weights every time you walk to give your muscles a chance to recover.

Fortunately, it is not an expensive expense. You can get a pair for your ankles for around 13 to 14 euros. These weights are designed to be worn comfortably around your ankles and add extra resistance to your movements.

Enjoy walking outdoors. It’s delicious and burns calories too. How much do you actually burn with an hour of walking? Vloggers Eva and Nicola have the answer to this question:
