Steps is such a big thing in the 21st century and this is because it is such a great way to burn energy (calories) without placing large amounts of stress on the body.
It is also a great excuse to get outdoors into the sun and get into nature even more then what we do now.
As we know, the human body will eventually adapt to what we are doing. This is why we need to ensure that we are periodising our training/physical activity.
If you find that you are stagnate even though you are hitting your 10,000 steps per day, this may be because you need to increase your step count.
Here is a quick look into how I would periodise a clients step count to ensure they get the most out of getting their daily step target:
- Weeks 1-4: 8,000 - 10,000
- Weeks 5-8: 10,000 - 12,000
- Weeks 9-12: 12,000 - 14,000
Grab those step counters and let’s get moving!!
