Walkshaping: Indoors Or Out, 6 Weeks to a Better Body

Front Cover
Hearst Books, 1995 - Medical - 268 pages
Whether you want to reduce back pain, shape your body, or lose weight, walking is nature's perfect medicine. Walkshaping will inspire you to get the most out of walking, whether you walk in the park or on the track, or simply step in place at home. Walkshaping uses fitness-walking as its basic activity but then adds specially designed calisthenic and bodybuilding exercises for a total body workout. The secret of Walkshaping is its unique combination of body-shaping arm, leg, and torso movements with a new kind of dynamic walking action. The routines, illustrated in 150 photographs, tone and strengthen buttocks, back, biceps, quadriceps, triceps, and hamstrings.
