I like to listen to military cadence when walking, it kinda helps me to keep track.
Just try and remember: left foot, right foot, left foot, right foot. Repeat as necessary.
Turning around with the instant 180 might be dangerous in crowds though.
Some people say they do, I don't know if the added weight is worth it.
I could see getting one just to pick up some chicks while mall walking through.
Guys I'm having trouble finding tgat sweet spot between walking and jogging. I'm trying to walk as fast as possible without finding myself starting to break into a jog.
Does anyone have any useful walking optimization tips?
>maybe a climbing general somewhere
Just walk up to a rail and casually vault over it and then walk to the next obstacle.
Its great for when you're trying to get to work without excessively wrinkling your clothes and working up a sweat.
I imagine you wouldn't' really be able to wall-up.
You'd have to rely on climbing and jumping to get up to higher places.
But you still have the precision jump, strides, balancing, and most vaults depending on the height.
