I just started walking the Appalachian Trail, would you like to join me? No need to bring your backpacks or tents though, I am walking the AT using an iPhone app called “Walk The Distance”.
Yes! I truly believe that walking is the easiest way to get in shape and stay in shape.
The research has been established of the health benefits of 10,000 steps per day. This figure has been adopted by the World Health Organization, The American Heart Foundation, and the US Department of Health and Human Services as a daily activity recommendation.
The question I get asked often is, “how many push-ups should I be able to do?”. In this day and age of “bigger is better” challenges, one the most often Googled challenges is being able to do 100 push-ups.
While the number 100 is impressive, I say it’s much less than that. In fact, recent research shows that a person that can do 40 push-ups lowers their risk of heart disease by 96%!
