Apparently when walking we are all doing it wrong. We are all using the 'passive foot', not aligning our hips correctly, and even are using our arms wrong. Blame your parents for their laxity in tutoring you as a toddler.


No worry, though. Because expert in the matter Joanna Hall has tips to improve, and boost the fitness giving benefits:

Thanks for that, I do try to keep my posture correct when walking but I am not sure I fully understand all this? I do find walking uphill difficult so will try to keep this in mind

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.

Remember we were told that sitting should be upright and now they say we should hunch and slouch. 

We were told red meat was good

Eggs were good

And now they are not

Walking...well I think it's a natural progression of leaning forwards, and putting one leg out to stop our fall, continuing to lean forwards, and using the other leg..and infinitum 

Humans have been walking upright for millennia, Harper's Bizzare (deliberate) have been in existence for less than 200 years, and the writer...well who knows.

Walking in a natural way wins hands down.

Because...well...that's nature

Apparently @dartgirl you will be pleased to know, apparently eggs are good for us now, as is proper butter, in fact natural stuff. As to walking, I really don’t know, I just do what comes natural

I seem to be able to fulfill my purpose of getting from one place to another, which is what I aim for when walking. While technique may add benefits, I'm hardly sure not adopting those techniques renders me as 'wrong'!
