Does Walking on An Incline Burn Belly Fat?

Many enjoy walking as a low intensity alternative to exercise and working out in comparison to running. Also, it works great if you don’t have the money for expensive workout equipment because if you don’t have a treadmill, you can still get your exercise.

Does walking up-hill really burn belly fat? In short yes. Incline walking burns more calories than walking on a flat source which in turn burns more fat. Walking uphill also puts more of a demand on your heart so it culminates with more calories burned.

What About My Mid-Section?

Walking on an incline results in your stomach becoming engaged to stabilize which in turn targets your hip flexors. Also, the slight twist to your torso performed by your arms swinging back and forth activates both your internal and external obliques.

You will also gain lean mass which will increase your metabolism which will result in more calories burned. The more calories burned the more fat burned not just from your midsection but from all over your body.
