Content and Objectives
After you gather initial experience with walking you are able to individually set the duration, intensity, and scope of the walking. This is supported with an introduction to techniques in power walking, hill walking, and walking with weights. The hour is bookended by special functional exercises targeted towards walking. The strain can be well controlled in the intensity areas, where aerobic endurance is improved.
