If you hate exercising, you are not alone. But instead of giving up exercise like most people do, try exercising. Wogging is fun. Wogging is healthy. And wogging is a great way to lose weight.
Wogging is a term for an exercise that combines the best of two worlds: walking and jogging. Wogging removes a lot of fat from your body. Wogging firms your lines and makes you feel great. Also, when done regularly and systematically, the work will prolong your life for many years.
It is generally accepted that there is no better exercise for your body (and your mind!) Than walking. But when you walk you only burn about 260 calories per hour. It is pleasant but just as effective as other exercises.
On the other hand, when you jog, you burn around 600 calories per hour. But jogging is strenuous, monotonous, and because it is a high-impact activity, it tends to lead to back, knee, and ankle injuries.
In short, walking is enjoyable and safe, while jogging is boring and can lead to injury.
Considering that most dieters hate doing something that isn’t fun, they consistently avoid jogging. And they lose the opportunity to burn calories.
If you are in the jogging avoidance class, then wogging is the answer for you.
There are two ways to wog. There is the constant wog and the variable wog.
When you do the constant wog, you walk like the Racewalkers do. (If you want to brush up on the technique, there are plenty of helpful videos on You Tube) Use the leg motion of a running walker, but then swing your arms like a Nordic Walker (once again, check out the technique on You Tube). Unlike a Racewalker, your feet leave the ground. It engages your entire body and burns a lot of calories.
When you do the variable wog, you just change your movement speed intermittently. You walk a bit, you walk a bit, you jog a bit, and you wog for a bit. You exercise while having fun.
Actually, variable movement is a lot of fun. You don’t get bored with a monotonous routine.
And having fun is important when you exercise. The more fun you have, the more likely you are to continue your fitness program.
When it comes down to it, wogging gives you the best of the walking and jogging worlds. You burn about 520 calories per hour, avoid the injuries that come with jogging, enjoy the scenery, and improve your body condition.
If you’ve never tried to wog, the next time you wear your shoes, start with constant wog and work your way from there.
You may find that it is much more effective and fun than you think.
