You are so right, incline walking really does give your lungs, legs, and body a great workout.

You’re absolutely right! Not only does incline walk/run increase your weight loss, it also builds stronger leg muscles. Great tip!

hello there! just curious, would there possibly be a significant difference between using the stairs and just an inclined and flat plane?

I’ve always been amazed at the difference even a slight incline can make. I like to take a walk around work in the afternoons, and there are many spots where I have to walk, say, up a driveway. It always gets me puffin’!

Hi Blanne, walking or running up stairs or using a stair-master at the gym is another great workout. It is comparable to walking on an incline, in fact they may even be a harder workout. Either way they definitely get your heart rate and breathing up.

Haym I’m wondering, does incline walking make your legs muscaular? Because I’ve been told it doesn’t but, does you legs build more muscle if you incline walk?

Incline walking will increase muscle mass in your legs, which will make you gain weight, in your legs. However, the rest of your body won’t convert to muscle, which means you will lose weight pretty much all over your body. In the end, it still equates to a very noticable weight loss.

At least that was what happened in my case. Don’t fear weight gain from muscle, people. Your legs will become toned and the rest of your body will shed pounds.

Depending on your ability, I wouldn’t always recommend dieting. Eat healthier foods and eat until you are full. Depriving yourself might lead to binge eating, and when people binge eat, it’s rarely healthy foods. I would rather stuff my face with brown rice and mixed-beans than deprive myself and binge-eat pizza and Doritos because my body is craving food.
