Her professional career began on Broadway and she was nominated for a Tony when she was just 12 years old. At the age of 18, she started in the world of cinema, and with Up in the air, a comedy with touches of drama that she did with George Clooney, she got an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
He rose to the top with the three films Pitch Perfect (Pitch Perfect), where he showed us not only that he acts but also that he sings and dances. In 2018 he starred with Blake Lively in a comic thriller, A Little Favor, and this year he has triumphed on HBO with a romantic series, Love Life, which has made us fall in love.
Anna Kendrick is an overwhelming woman who loves trying new exercises to keep herself in top shape. She has tried yoga, Pilates or running, and has found walking the ideal exercise for her at this time in her life.
The benefits of brisk walking
As he has stated in a magazine, walks help him “have better ideas” and clears his mind. Quick walks, especially in mountainous areas with ups and downs in level, have many benefits. The first one is that it keeps us active and is an exercise completely accessible to everyone. You don’t need extra material, just the right shoes and a lot of desire.
Like any aerobic exercise, brisk walking begins by having benefits on your cardiovascular health: it activates blood circulation, improves lung capacity and improves blood pressure, for example.
In addition, it reduces the risk of diabetes, improves cholesterol levels and is an excellent exercise not only for the legs and buttocks, the main beneficiaries of this type of exercise, but also for the arms (which can accompany us in the movement to increase the caloric expenditure) and for the core and specifically the abdomen, which is also involved when walking.
This activity, much less harmful than running, will allow us, according to Vitónica experts, to “perform aerobic exercise in a safer and more sustainable way over time.”
In Anna Kendrick’s case, she performs this activity in a mountainous area of Los Angeles, close to where she lives. Being active in nature can have a very positive impact on anxiety, depression or stress, according to this study. Any sport practice helps us to release endorphins, and with walks we will also achieve that effect.
Walking helps us to activate the metabolism, to increase the burning of calories and, as we have already explained, it helps us to prevent many diseases derived from sedentary lifestyle. The key, according to Vitónica experts, to turn this activity into a habit is to gradually increase the intensity, both in time and in the speed of the strides. Walking for at least half an hour a day is essential every day.
Including obstacles will improve results, helping to burn more calories and activate more muscles. Walks in the countryside or in mountainous areas with different levels of slopes are much more effective. If we walk through the city, do not run away from the slopes or stairs.
An easy exercise within everyone’s reach with many more benefits than it may seem, and that keeps Anna Kendrick in shape by practicing a simple aerobic exercise.
