Crush 10k Steps Per Day With This Tip
Recently, Kate Gugerli shared a genius strategy that helped her hit 10,000 steps per day.
(Which ultimately helped her drop 70lbs)
Gugerli calls 10k steps per day a ‘fat loss non-negotiable.’
While there’s some controversy over this ‘magic number’, most people could make a bullfrog-like leap towards their fitness goals with this habit alone.
Problem is, it’s a tall mountain to climb for many people. And they find it tough to pound out that many steps – especially if they have a desk job.
So what’s Gugerli’s secret?
She inserts ‘bursts of walking’ in place during the day.
Apparently, one day, she pulled out a stopwatch and timed how quickly she could do 100 steps. She discovered she could do it in less than 40 seconds.
''That means it takes me a little over six minutes to get 1,000 steps. By doing that 10 times through the day, I can get 10,000 steps in a day when I am otherwise sedentary.' – Kate Gugerli
There’s enormous power in breaking down big goals this way.
For instance, if you aren’t getting enough protein each day… or servings of vegetables… or drinking enough water - break it down - and you may find it’s much more in your reach than you realized.
Also, if 10,000 steps is still daunting in your mind, climb a smaller mountain first.
No one says you have to start at 10k. Take on 8k… 7k… 6k… 5k… even less if that’s where you are starting at.
There’s no shame in starting small.
In fact, I have more respect for those who are willing to start small because they are willing to fit the plan to their individual starting point.
I have a private coaching client whose ultimate goal is 10,000 steps each day. They recently hit 7,800 steps which for them was a huge improvement.
There’s no reason you can’t start small and work on simply bettering your best.
