Video: Which muscles are you using when you walk?

Why do they say that fitness walking is a complete sport? Fitness walking, active or fast, works not only lower muscles. In addition to working out the thighs and gluteals, fitness walking also strengthens the entire upper body, especially the arms and abdominals.

In this video, Dr. Patrick Bacquaert, Chief Doctor at the IRBMS (Institute for Well-Being, Medicine and Sports Health Research) ) explains how the natural swing of the arms gets your whole body moving during your fitness walking or fast walking session.
