Take it a step further by embarking on your daily walks with a weight vest. Vests are a safe way to add more weight and intensity to your walks as they centre the extra weight on your torso instead of straining your back like a backpack would. This makes it a brilliant way to double the amount of calories you would normally burn on your walks. Or, tap into more muscle power by exploring nordic walking which uses walking poles to work your arms.
