Types of Walk:

Brisk Walk: It is a moderate intensity activity. It’s a pace that is challenging but still you should not lose your breath. Your heart rate should be 50 percent more than the normal heart rate. Walk for about 20 to 30 minutes for first 3 weeks at least twice a week as mentioned in plan below and gradually increase the time to 30 to 40 minutes

Fast Walk: It is a face paced walk that should take your heart rate to 70 to 80 percent more than the normal heart rate. Swinging your arms in full force you should not be able to talk.

Speed Walk: This is a combination of brisk walk and fast walk. Brisk Walk for about 3 minutes and then fast walk for 1 minute. Slowly decrease your brisk walk time and the cycle should be like 1 minute brisk walk and 1 minute fast walk. Walk for about 25 minutes at least three times a week and gradually increase the time till 35 minutes.
