What is the 10 000 step challenge? Start by trying to get 4,000 steps a day for a week, and add 1,000 steps per day each week until you’re doing 10,000. This can be as simple as walking your dog an extra five or 10 minutes or parking at the back of your office parking lot and taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
How many steps a day to prevent cancer? Research supports the idea that walking 10,000 steps a day contributes to reducing the risk of cancer and chronic diseases.
How long does it take to walk 10000 steps? Ten thousand steps equates to about eight kilometres, or an hour and 40 minutes walking, depending on your stride length and walking speed.
