Discover how walking can get you to only 10% body fat.
When it comes to losing weight, and we are talking about low body fat percentage here, you can ask many people how to achieve that.
Although answers can be vastly varied, we at BOXROX hope that it trickled down to two essentials: eat healthy and burn more calories than what you are consuming.
And for most people, those two essentials of losing weight and lowering body fat percentage can mean different things to different people. The goal might be the same, but the way to get there is varied, which is what we are trying to state here.
However, we can almost guarantee that when people tell you how to burn more calories than what you are eating, through exercising, nobody remembers the most basic movement of them all: walking.
Do you know how walking can get you to only 10% body fat? That is what Dr Mike Diamonds decided to talk about on his YouTube channel.

How Walking Can Get You to Only 10% Body Fat
Diamonds’ explains while citing some research made, that cardio workouts can directly impair strength and muscle hypertrophy. HIIT can be effective in burning calories, but taxing on the body.
Over time it can affect your ability to build or even maintain muscle.
That is why too much cardio can make you look stringy or skinny fat. Yes, Diamonds will always use some HIIT to contribute to his fat loss technique, but walking is incredibly low-impact on your body.
Because of its low-impact nature, you can ramp up how much you walk and it won’t hinder your performance at the gym. You can continue your progressive overload strength training in the gym while adding the calories you burn through walking.
He also explains that, while walking does not burn as many calories as other forms of cardio, the calories it burns come from fat stores.
Ultimately, how much walking do you need to do to get to 10% body fat? Well, it depends.
Diamonds recommends beginning with 8,000 steps daily. Weekly, or bi-weekly, increase your steps by 1,000. At some point, to get absolutely shredded for competition, Mike Diamonds got to 25,000 steps a day.
You can simply go for a walk around the neighbourhood for 30 minutes. Maybe two sessions, one in the morning and one in the evening, and you will already be burning fat cells in your body to lower your body fat percentage.
