Before training
– The last meal before the power walk should be an hour earlier. Do not do this activity with full stomach. If you are very hungry, eat wholegrain energy bars or a banana.
– Just before the walk, it is necessary to have a good stretch and warm up to avoid muscle injuries – especially if you’re a beginner!
– Start with a slow walk, which should take 10 min and then slowly accelerate.
If you breathe faster, but you can still say a normal sentence – you achieved the perfect pace.

Equipment
The clothes and footwear must be adapted to this activity.
You need to wear running trainers – as comfortable as possible and good support for the joints. Preferably, you can chose natural materials so that your legs won’t sweat.

There are no rules for clothing – it is important to be made of cotton and to be comfortable.

Always carry a bottle of water. A good trick is to take two bottles of water that can serve as weights. This way you increase the effort and the number of calories burned.

Note:
It is best to gradually enter into the routine of power walking. If you do it abruptly you may cause muscle fatigue. Follow the reaction of your body on a given pace and gently accelerate depending on your condition.
