Walking is good for bone density, muscular endurance, balance and strength, especially for those who are deconditioned. If you are beyond a basic level of fitness, walking will do little to build strength or bone density, unless you make it harder by walking uphill, power or speed walking, or adapting racewalking techniques to increase difficulty. Walking does help to achieve or maintain cardiovascular fitness and control or prevent many chronic diseases.
