Hi, this is Christine with Hammer Time Fitness, and I am going to give you some running techniques to lose weight. The first thing I'm going to tell you is you're getting out there and you're doing something. So, if you're a beginner, that's fantastic. Start out slow, walk, you know, until you get up to a running pace. Now, you're definitely going to burn more calories if you're running, so just keep that in mind. You definitely want to, you know, increase your speed even if you're walking, you want to increase your speed, get that heart rate up to burn some calories. So, in order to lose weight with running, you need to increase your heart rate. So, we're going to run some intervals. We're going to start running slow just to get our muscles warmed up and then we're going to increase our speed, little short bursts of intense running will really burn those calories, get your heart rate going. So, for 10 to 20 seconds, we're going to increase our speed and really get those calories burning. Then we're going to slow back down. We're going to slow to a pace, and then we're going to walk again and we're going to keep doing that. The longer you go, the more calories you're going to burn. So, you're going to go for as long as you can. I would suggest starting out at at least 30 minutes. This has been Christine with Hammer Time Fitness, showing you some techniques for running to lose weight.
