Walkers Need to Stretch and Strengthen

Walkers Need to Stretch and Strengthen

If you walk often, your body may begin to experience muscle imbalances. Without stretching, walkers may experience tight hamstrings, calves, and lower back muscles. And, without strengthening exercises to keep them strong, the shins, quadriceps, and belly can become weakened. In order to keep things balanced, it’s important to incorporate stretching and strengthening exercises into your walking routine.*

Consider incorporating yoga and Pilates into your exercise regimen. Yoga will give your body the proper stretching it needs, while Pilates will offer strengthening exercises using your own bodyweight.
