Here are four research reasons you need to hit the trail: Hiking benefit No. 1: It allows you take control of the workout. Most fashionable trainers tout high intensity exercise routines, but few point out fast and furious approach does not work for everybody. Sadly, in the current environment a good deal of what we see from the media is going as hard as possible, as fast as possible, said Anthony Wall, manager of professional development in the American Council on Exercise.

With hiking, you can plot your own course: Can it be a trail that is inclining or a trek up a mountain? In addition, you place your own pace and distance. Regardless if you decide on a midday hike, a weekend in on the woods, or a long distance adventure, you are not having to listening to a bossy spin tutor yelling at you to turn it up. Hiking benefit No. 2: It tones everything. Straight up walking may find your butt in better shape, however taking on slopes, using trekking poles to push you forward along with clambering over rocks gives your body an all over work out.

Physiologically, you are going to work your entire body, and particularly the lower body, especially the quads, glutes and hamstrings, Wall stated. If you are carrying a pack, then you are going to increase the challenge of strength and endurance to your upper body as well.". Hiking benefit No. 3: It provides you camaraderie with your cardio. A study published in Biology Letters discovered that group exercise improved pain threshold, indicating a surge of an athlete's best friend: endorphins. Wall agrees: We know that social group dynamics along with working with like-minded individuals is something which makes us feel better."

A regular weekend meeting or a planned long distance hike may help you forge bonds while you shape up. Also, interaction with the bigger hiking community encourages you to participate with your workout as a lifestyle, as opposed to a chore, that will make you more prone to stay with it for the long term. Hiking benefit No. 4: It boosts your mood. According to a study published in Environmental Science & Technology, outdoor exercise is linked to greater feelings of revitalization and positive engagement, decreases in tension, confusion, anger and depression, and increased energy.". For all people who have desk jobs along with 40 hour work weeks, getting outside supplies a mental reset.
