StandingSteps™ to Aerobic Walking

Wearing a step counter to track your physical activity suggests that all of your ‘steps’ are created equal. But to equal aerobic activity they must be weight-bearing and employ larger muscle groups for a sufficient time. This is the definition of aerobic activity emphasized by the Malkin Technique for Aerobic Walking for over three decades. It is the right definition because it recognizes that utilizing more oxygen will reliably turn on metabolic processes. Such processes rely on small blood capillaries to deliver oxygen. Metabolism changes proceed while these small capillaries are recruited to doing the work involved in circulation. Scaling up these processes higher is made possible by physical activity using larger muscle groups of the hips and legs.
By learning the Malkin Technique for Aerobic Walking we can increase the power in our steps and confidently achieve weight-bearing aerobic exercise in gentle fashion using fluid movements of the legs, hips and torso. You don’t need to lift either foot, just turn your hips and bend leg under each turn!
By using a portable elliptical StandingSteps™ trainer you are able to easily and comfortably increase circulation and practice your familiarity with and command of muscular contractions responsible for balanced movement of your legs, hips and torso.
But when do we find time for this? Simple, a portable elliptical Standing Steps trainer turns standing into a comfortable mode of exercise anywhere you wish to stand. Some will make time for aerobic activity at the beginning or the very end of an otherwise demanding day. A better solution may be climbing out of your chair for StandingSteps exercise more often throughout your day! This solution is the StandingSteps to Aerobic Walking Project, and will increase your flexibility while you are taking breaks from sitting throughout your day.
