Health Tip of the Day

Race-Walking Techniques

  • Don't lean forward as you walk. Keep your body upright, but relaxed, and don't tilt your pelvis as you move forward.

  • Keep your head in line with your body, looking forward, so your breathing won't be impaired.

  • Keep your arms bent at a 90-degree angle and swing them as you walk.

  • Use your hips to create a forward momentum by moving them from front to back. This hip movement pushes the knee and foot forward.

  • Don't reach out too far with your stride. Your hips should be in the lead, not your feet. The faster you move your hips, the faster you'll go.

  • Plant each foot heel first, then roll your foot to the outside and spin off from the tips of your toes.

  • Breathe from deep in your belly, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth.
