Brisk walking can not only help you to deal with overweight, but also to fight infertility. During a sport activity, your organs are pumped with blood and endorphines, hormones of happiness, are released.
Step by step towards a baby
A healthy lifestyle is more important for a successful conception than it might seem at first glance. If you are overweight, an excess fat in your body can lead to overproduction of certain hormones. These hormones can subsequently disrupt ovulation and cause irregular menstruation. Recent studies show that 4 hours of physical activity a week can increase the chances of conception, especially in the women who had an abortion in the past. At the same time, they say that overweight women can increase their fertility with just a 10-minute walk a day.
Going on walks regularly is a suitable physical activity even for those who have not really enjoyed sports so far. Daily walks are not demanding on time or equipment, so Nordic walking, so-called Nordic walking with sticks, is an affordable exercise for everyone. How to start Nordic walking?
High quality sticks will provide you with support when walking. In addition, when walking with sticks, we engage the muscles of the upper body and burn more energy. Your walk will have a higher effect.
You should also have proper footwear. Low shoes are suitable, because they are light, resistant and, most importantly, breathable. Don't be afraid to choose a half size bigger shoes to give your feet extra space.
Nordic walking experts will teach you how to use their techniques to prevent any possible mistakes or injuries. If you do not have the opportunity to visit the instructor in person, follow the video with coach Hana Čepová.
