5 Ways To Burn More Calories When You’re Walking The Dog

Walking your dog every day, several times a day helps you burn more calories to lose weight at a faster rate, especially if you’re taking Phentermine 37.5 mg. Use the following tips to burn even more calories during daily outings with Fido so you see the results you want faster.

Add A Resistance Training Element

Build muscle strength as you burn more calories by adding weights to your dog walking workouts. Use ankle or wrist weights to challenge yourself with resistance training while keeping your hands free to control the leash, which is especially important if you’re still training the dog how to walk “with manners.”

Run Periodically

Break into sprints every so often to help yourself and the canine with weight management. Consider it a form of HIIT! If you just started an HIIT program, periodic sprints will make workout days easier so you don’t feel like your muscles are jelly by the end of the exercise session.

Go For Longer, Brisker Walks

Even if you don’t sprint on occasion when you walk the dog, you can still go on longer walks where you’re both walking as fast as you can. Start timing yourself as you explore your neighborhood with your favorite pooch, and aim for longer durations every day.

Add A Cleanup Element

Use doggy walks as an opportunity to beautify your neighborhood. Wear thick gloves and bring a trash bag to collect garbage as you go. Bending over regularly to pick up trash helps you burn more calories and work more muscles. It also helps you enjoy a cleaner, greener community.

Try Cross Training

Walk your dog while doing some cross training, such as lunges and jumping jacks. Use each walk as an opportunity to try something new that challenges your body so you avoid exercise plateaus.
