What muscles do you work when you walk uphill?
Exercising on an incline treadmill builds more muscles in the ankles, calves, and upper and lower thighs & glutes more than walking on a level surface. The incline of the treadmill stretches the calves, thus building long, lean muscles. The steeper you set the incline, the more you'll benefit.
Hiking is a powerful cardio workout that can: Lower your risk of heart disease. Boost bone density, since walking is a weight-bearing exercise. Build strength in your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and the muscles in your hips and lower legs.
- The experience is something out of the world. Peace of Mind: Some people go hiking in search of inner peace. For many, it is a way to get away from their hectic lives and all the stress endured on a daily basis. Hiking is thus a great way to spend some time alone as well as relish the joy of nature.
