Since even moderate-intensity workouts offer a slew of benefits, walking is a good choice for people looking to stay healthy. “Walking is cheap,” says Dr. John Paul H. Rue, a sports medicine doctor at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. Research also shows that HIIT workouts increase muscle oxidative capacity, or the ability to use oxygen. To do a fartlek walk, try walking at an increased pace for 3 minutes, slow down for 2 minutes, and repeat. “Start by walking at a brisk pace for about 10 minutes per day, 3 to 5 days per week,” Rue says.
