    Do you consider walking a workout?

    I heard that some people lost weights by walking around 10,000 steps per day. Do you consider walking (fast) a kind of workout?

    Yup, But it all depends on the person if they will lose weight or not

    Walking is valid exercise, yes.

    No. Walking doesn't raise the heartbeat (unless you're obese).

    ... Facts of biology considers walking a potential workout.

    It all depends on how it's done.

    Pure BS. Walking can be done at a variety of speeds and intensity, not just 1...

    If your walking heart rate is identical to your resting heart rate I'd be surprised. Especially considering

    Won't build much muscle, but it's great for losing weight! Walking/jogging burns most calories for least effort.

    You should try racewalking. It's such a brutal sport.

    I think it was in the last olympics when Yohann Diniz just kept going on and on even though his pants were filled with shit, piss and blood.

    I guess it depends on what your goal is.

    If your goal is to get fit, walking is low intensity by nature, so not great for building up the kind of endurance you'd need to run and climb and such.

    If you're looking to lose weight, pairing walking with reduced caloric intake will help you drop weight relatively effortlessly without substantially increasing your appetite. The walk would need to be at a good pace for about 45 minutes - if you do that, depending on your current weight, you can burn ~300+ calories in about 45 mins. Not too shabby at all, given the effort. I can't stress enough the point about not substantially increasing appetite. When you're trying to cut, increased appetite is the last thing you want.

    A lot of runners burn great calories on their runs, but their appetites are huge. This makes watching your calories much more difficult, which makes losing weight more difficult.
