Tip 19 – power walk to the finish

Fast walking – also known as power walking – is a great way to boost your fitness and energy levels, plus you'll cover more distance in your 20 minutes!

Try walking on different surfaces and inclines, as it uses different muscles and will strengthen them, too.

Share your walking photos on social media, tagging @livingstreets and using the hashtag #Try20.
