Prevention Walk Workouts

Denise Austin by Denise Austin | July 14, 2020 | General

Welcome Prevention Magazine Virtual 5K Walk Participants! This page includes your weekly workouts to add to or replace your daily walking. I suggest the following for the different levels of fitness:

  • Beginners – Those who walk or workout less than 2 days per week: Focus on your walks and rest days; add in 1 workout below per week if you are up to it. By week 3 and 4, try to make sure you are doing at least one of these workouts per week, to help strengthen your core and keep your upper body and legs ready for your walk!
  • Intermediate – Those who walk or workout 2-4 days per week: Focus on walks and rest days; add in both workouts per week if you are up to it. By weeks 3 and 4, you should really be doing two workouts either in addition to your walks or in replacement of them.
  • Advanced – Those who walk or workout most days of the week: Focus on walks and workouts; add in a rest day if you feel you need one. Since you are already in a place to workout most days of the week, take a rest day when you need it, but really focus on adding in these workouts to your walking plan.

And if you haven’t yet, don’t forget to sign up for my FREE 4-Week Walking Training Challenge! It is a great way to stick with your goal of doing the Prevention Virtual 5K on October 3, 2020, and can help you tone up, build stamina, lose weight and more!
