Go Go Power Walking Rangers


Scrawlcreatelive

Recommended Posts

Update: I finished my Master's in August and I need to get back into the habits of fitness. I have been watching Super Sentai (the show that Power Rangers is based on) and that inspired this challenge.

 

Here are my goals for this challenge:

 

Workout 4 times a week:

I am planning on doing cross training for this challenge My workouts will break down like this:

 

Power Walking

I plan to power walk with Hiit intervals once a week to burn extra calories

 

Bodyweight strength training

1 time a week to build muscle

 

1 kickboxing workout a week

 

1 flexibility training because I noticed I am feeling a little tight.

 

Personal

 

25 - 40 hours on job search to find options for work that are meaningful.

 

I have started Meditation again and I want to do it twice a day for 20 minutes.

Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

What do you do for the HIIT training on your power walks? And what makes them power walks?  I love walking, but I tend to always slow my pace even if I start at a fast pace

I'm trying to figure it out myself but from what I've learned is that you are mindful of your body. I think the definition of power walking is at least one foot is on the ground at all times, unlike jogging where there is a subtle leap where both feet leave the ground. What I have learned is that intensity is relative to your level of fitness. Since you can't set your speed like you can on a treadmill it is important to rate your intensity on a 1 - 10 scale (1 being sitting on your couch and 10 being the fastest you can walk without running). After you warm up or stretch, you want to aim for a 4-5 pace if you can as a steady level of intensity. Ideally, the increased intensity of an interval is about a 7 or 8. When your walking outside you can set an interval clock (look at a 3 to 1 work/rest ratio if you're starting out) for your intervals or choose a distance for them such as power walking until the end of the block. You can increase intensity by increasing range of motion in legs arms, increase speed or intervals, or walk up steeper terrain like a hill if you find yourself needing a challenge. It might also be a matter of just trying out different speeds.

I'm jealous, most of the hills in town are around the golf course a couple of miles away.

Yesterday, I had to make a quick trip out of town so I am going to be making up a power walk this week (more than likely tomorrow). The good news is that I bought some new shoes to workout in and they will provide more support than the pair I have been using (an old pair I scavenged for in the closet).
