Walking uphill

Tips for walking uphill: Make sure you warm up by walking on the flat first for about 5 minutes. Shorten your steps. If you are fit, you can quicken your step rate with shorter steps, or if you are less fit, then at least try to maintain your step rate. Lean very slightly forward into the hill. Leaning backwards will unbalance you. Because hills are hard work, you should experience an increase in your heart rate and breathing rate. However, make sure that you can still conduct a conversation, even if it is somewhat breathless.
