WOW Workout Of the Week---- Take a Hike

Now that the snow is melting here, I am very anxious to get out on some trails!

Did you know that adding incline to your "walk" will most likely increase your heart rate more than adding speed (ie: running)?  And that incline can add in some more scenic beauty as well, making your workout a bit more enjoyable! 

This workout adds in a bit of resistance training along the way.  Find a hill or trail that matches your ability.
