Walking is one of the easiest ways for you to be physically active. Walking is inexpensive, and you can walk almost anywhere and at any time.
Keep safety in mind as you plan when and where you walk.
Stretch it out
Stretch gently after you warm up your muscles, and again after you cool down. Try doing the stretches listed below. Do not bounce or hold your breath when you stretch. Perform slow movements and stretch only as far as you feel comfortable.
Side Reach- Reach one arm over your head and to the side. Keep your hips steady and your shoulders straight to the side. Hold for 10 seconds and repeat on the other side.
Walking with proper form is very important.
Try to walk daily. If you are walking fewer than three times per week, give yourself more than two weeks before increasing the pace and frequency.
