    Walking is a great form of aerobic exercise for overall health. 

                             

    Aim to perform 30min or more of walking at least 5x per week. This can be done in a single session, or broken up into smaller bouts throughout the day (example 3x10min bouts). Focus on maintaining a pace where you are able to have a conversation, but not sing a song or whistle. Take breaks as needed. To make walking more challenging, choose walking routes with both hills and flat ground(1).

    A regular and consistent exercise program is best, but the type and intensity of the exercises required will also vary between individuals (2). Your doctor can advise you on what level of exercise you require and what is safe for you. Some men find that a trained clinical exercise physiologist can be motivational and more importantly, suggest a program of cardio and strength exercises that are helpful and that you can persist with independently.  Often seeing a local family physician or a physiotherapist in conjunction with a registered dietitian and athletic therapist is a great option to take control of this condition. Smart Food Now and exercise is also optominal for overall health.   

    Before getting started, please check with your family physician to ensure this exercise is right for you. Presenter: Mr. Nick Pratap, Kinesiologist, Vancouver, BC
