BRISK WALKING FOR HEALTH HEART
Walking is one of the simplest ways to stay active.
The simple physiology behind this is
Walking is an good aerobic activity that temporarily increase heart rate and blood pressure,leads to greater efficiency of the heart. The heart is a muscle with fibers that contracts and pumps blood with each heartbeat and delivers more oxygen and nutrients to other organs.
Walking or any physical activity depends on three elements- the Intensity,Duration and Frequency of exercise.
After several studies the cardiologist suggest us brisk walking atleast 30 to 40 mintues a day for all, and 60 minutes a day for those who plans to reach their ideal weight.
But if you already have a heart disease or you have any discomfort during walking, consult your doctor about safety and set a goals just with stress test prior to starting any physical activity which will monitors and record your heart activity and which helps to identify safe heart rate zone.
Healthy heart zone is 50 to 60 percent of your maximum heart rate.
Fitness heart zone is 60 to 70 percent of your maximum heart rate.
Aerobic Heart zone is 70 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate.
If you are healthy person you can monitor your heart rates even with smart watches or mobile app etc..
There are two important keys for burning fat when walking. 
The 1st is that you need to walk fast enough to raise your heart rate into the best zone for burning fat for energy. 
The 2nd is that you walk long enough that you are burning stored fat rather than just burning off the sugars your body stores for quick bursts of exercise.

So Walk,walk,walk..
To stay healthy be active and make others active!
