Walking Gear and Stretching

Hi Everyone:

Today I would like to briefly discuss some walking gear and tips for stretching before walking.

Walking Gear

While there is no need to spend a lot of money on walking gear, there are a number of items that will make your walk easier, safer and more fun:

Pedometers - A pedometer is the perfect way to enhance your walking. First of all, it's fun to know how many steps you've taken, how far you've walked, or how long you've been walking. Secondly, a pedometer allows you to keep track of your progress against the goals you have set for yourself. A pedometer will aslo show you the steps taken or distance traveled over one or several walks.

Reflective Products and Lights - If you are walking in the morning or in the early evening, reflective products are a must, in my opinion. Your walking gear can include a reflective vest and reflective bands. A flash ligh is also helpful to keep safe.

Shoes - They Make the Walker - Shoes are the single most important piece of equipment for walking. They can be the difference between having a comfortable fun walk and a painful one. Find shoes with the following:

  • Provide both support and comfort to the whole foot.
  • Have enough toe room
  • Firm support at the heel
  • Breathable material
Stretching

Whether this is your first time exercise walking or you are a walking pro, it is crucial that you stretch before and after your exercise. Stretching will help loosen your muscles, reducing the chance of sore or injured muscles. Suggested stretches include calf and achilles stretch, hamstring stretch and quadriceps stretch.

Viagra is the world renowned medicine for erectile dysfunction and most men have forgotten they ever had a problem with erections after its use. Take it on empty stomach and it will work in 30 minutes. Erections can be achieved on stimulation.

Generic Cialis is used to increase blood flow to certain areas of the body, as a muscle relaxant and as a male impotence or erectile dysfunction treatment.

Generic Cialis is slightly different from the other erectile drugs available in the market as it may work up to 36 hrs after dosing. Generic Levitra orks along with sexual stimulation to help achieve an erection when taken 30 to 60 minutes before sexual activity.

Generic Viagra is used in the treatment of Erectile Dysfunction (impotence), but it is not a cure. Impotence can be caused by a number of factors, either physical or psychological. Viagra can help maintain an erection but it will not stimulate arousal.
