what are you wearing?
Of course, you should wear good sports shoes. Nina suggests wearing light shoes that give you flexibility and enough room for your toes, so they have enough room to stretch while you "toe
yourself". Completely avoid pointed sneakers, and always make sure that there is a space of two toes between the longest toe and the end of the shoe.
How do you master it?
What achieves results with this method is a combination of speed and the right technique. Here is some useful information.
Check your body position. Distribute your weight evenly with your feet slightly open. Make sure the back of your knees are directly above your heels and your hips are slightly forward. The chest should be high.
Improve your breathing. Breathe deeply. And when you inhale do not let your belly protrude forward. While breathing, the shoulders should move together slightly. As you breathe in, you should feel the rib cage move. Aim to expand your upper body rather than moving it upward.
Watch your feet. During brisk walking, your pelvis and hip area should move freely. When you take a step forward, bend your foot and hit the ground with your heel. Return to the foot with the ball of the foot and push yourself using your toes.
Move your arms. As you walk, swing your arms against your feet, bent at the elbows at a 90-degree angle, with hands slightly closed. Keep your elbows close to your body and don't bring your hands below your waist.
