  • When I walk near a bunch of thugs they’ll start laughing or they even say “gay walk gay walk”… and that has made me feel uncomfortable when I walk but I’ve seen some of those thugs walking they’re insecure about their walks too lol this video definitely put me in the right direction we also have to remember that we’ve been sitting most of the time and we as humans need to exercise some muscles and don’t forget to goto a chiropractor

    Always look for help theres people out there waiting for you to help you…make the world a better place we are waiting for each other to normalize dont go fast go slow at first then you go fast if you want to ♥

  • I looked this up because I knew it there would be some video explaining something that this stupid. If you need to learn how to walk, then you’re a fucking moron.

  • I noticed my glutes weren’t activating properly while walking, but wasn’t sure if it was abnormal.
    Thanks to this video, I now know. This is a YouTube godsend in the sea of bs search results.

  • I really have to laugh. It’s a myth that we are designed to push off. The glutes are designed pull the body through. The body pulls through the step so effortlessly it’s unnoticeable. When you push through you are over engaging muscles, that’s why you feel it. We are not designed to walk with heel strike. But that’s what the modern walk with shoes has become.

  • Learning to walk bc of my harden claves (bc of sports) which restricts my foot movements. Was going to get therapy but corona… so basically I’ve always walked weird and I’m tired of getting made fun of!

  • I’ve been having knee pain for years, last year I went to a physical therapist and she said Its because I have weak hips, after being given a list of exercises I asked if there was anything I could do in my day to day life that’s more sustainable to help and if I was walking wrong in the first place because I had been told I walk funny in my life lol. She said no there’s nothing. Today I YouTubed “how to walk” because my knees started hurting again and I literally don’t use my hips to walk took me 1:20 to find an answer where a PT cost 1000$

  • Great video as always. I have a question: why do you use a walker in the States? In Europe we stand up on day zero after TKR and walk some meters in the hallway of the hospital the next day using sticks. Walkers are only used by very very old peopleIs who have back pain. Is this cultural?

  • After my PD diagnosis, I started out taking only Azilect, then Mirapex and sinemet as the disease progressed but didn’t help much. In July last year, I started on PARKINSON DISEASE TREATMENT PROTOCOL from Herbal Health Point (ww w. herbalhealthpoint. c om). Few months into the treatment, I made a significant recovery. After I completed the recommended treatment plan, almost all my symptoms were gone, had wonderful improvement with my movement and tremors. Its been 6 months since I completed the treatment, I live a better life..

  • Holyyyyyyy-
    So what you’re telling me, is that the reason I’ve been walking funny my whole lifE is because I pull front front leg with each step instead of pushing with my back leg????


  • How low I have fallen… People used to say how cute I am and ever since I’ve grown tall, people says that I walk like a mafia and that my stare is very intimidating, fk I’m just awkward staring at people. F*ckkkkkk I want my cute and innocent image back. Now my face looks like a fking gigolo/fuck boy…I used to have a lot of people approaching me even though I’m an introvert but now huhuhu. I’m now fking just desperate to know how to walk normal

  • Bro my shoulder tilts sideways left right back and forth while walking without me realizing it(Knew after some people said me and people murmuring and smiling watching me).How to keep my shoulder stable while walking any advise?

  • Hello sir,

  • For people sying this is stupid,I’m really insecure about myself and I’m really scared of being judged and it’s like I forgot how to walk bcz I’m scared people are looking at me so I’m watching it for this

  • I walk the only way I can. Had part of my foot and later bones in toes removed. My feet one goes east and one goes West and I waddle on. Still.manage to get a few miles in at 70.

  • I am 37 years old, here watching this interesting video. I have sustained different injuries over time and it has affected my walking. This video is helping me a lot.

  • When someone asks me “How to get a six pack?”, I always recommend website NextLevelDiet because you get personalized DIET plan, TRAINING plan, FITNESS tips, and HEALTHY recipes. It’s everything you need to get six pack in one month!

  • I had a Appendix surgery which made my legs hurt so bad when I was walking so I was on a wheelchair for 2 months and I forgot how to walk properly because it hurt so bad to walk

  • LOL NEW RESEARCH,, ok fkin idiocy wtf is wrong with you guys everyone knew this forever,, im starting to think mayo clinic might be full of sht or deliberatedly late?

  • I have a great physio guy; 6 months ago I needed a walker; now despite Covid 19 I have a dog again and defintely get 10,000 steps in. One bad habit I developed was using my laptop in bed all you guys out there BAD IDEA!

    Tx for really helpful video. So glad I came upon it.

  • It would’ve been so beneficial to show the proper walk in slo-mo for a minute or two. Then, the brain could lock in to the rhythm, and remember it.

  • This is what I found through experimentation
    On hard surfaces barefoot toe first is the most comfortable gait.
    On hard surfaces with footwear heel first accompanied with lifting you leg more than usual, just like cycling.
    Both toe first n heel first should be performed with a very small angle. So that the force gets uniformly distributed.

  • When I walk my back is curved and my head is a bit to on front..I am always uncomfortable walking in public..I am working on it and I hope it gets better as I am still 13 lol

  • I have issues with my ankles because I don’t walk properly, my knees face inwards when I walk but I’m only 14 so I can’t get proper help because I’m not old enough:/
    Sometimes it stops me from exercising

  • I came to this because I was over thinking how to walk and now I don’t remember how to walk properly and this video made it worse even more because he was saying so much aahhhhhhh!!!!!

  • When i was in elementary some of my friends would say I walk like I’m trying to push out my ass idk if that makes sense, and I really don’t try to, since then I don’t even like going out, taking the bus and when I have to I try to hide my butt with a purse of big sweaters even in summer

  • I’m 74 and walk a lot (no car) but also ride a electric unicycle wheel. I feel great and don’t know if i want to change anything. Nope im not watching no change is great for me.

  • Im bored of calculating calories intake and BMI. NextLevelDiet website does it for FREE. They also provide personalized training plan and diet plan with amazing recipes.

  • As I started following diet and training plan from *Next Level Diet*, I took my confidence to the next level. Girls finally started noticing me.

  • I have allergies on many foods and It is hard for me to find a diet that doesn’t include particular foods. Then my friend sent me link to the website called Next Level Diet where I can get personalized meal plan only with food I select. My fitness journey has just started, what about you?

  • Wow! I just found website Next Level Diet and read their fitness tips and recipes. I can’t wait to get my diet and training plan from that site and transform my body. Summer body, here I come!

  • 2 months ago, I was fat and had single. Now I have great body and a girlfriend. Coincidence? I wouldn’t say. Trust me guys, all you need is training and diet plan. You can get both from NextLevelDiet.

  • RUE STORY: A doctor suggested a 300 lb guy to start walking 2 miles a day to loose weight. He called a year later, Dr you were right, I lost 150 lb only by walking 2 Miles/day but I have another problem: I am 730 miles away from my home.

  • a treat other then food,, hun well said aight some truth,,
    tho coffee means dairy too often,, meaning the ultimate worse crap you can EVER EAT IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE,, theirs ABSOLUTLY NOTHING WORSE in all the crap people think its normal to eat/drink,, NOTHINGS WORSE THEN DAIRY NOTHING,, white blood cells acne alergies mucus allllllll the other health issues with fat arteries blockages from all meats INCLUDing fish (dioxine pcb mercury pesticides fat cholesterole acidicanimal protein AND NOW MICRO PLASTIC IN fish too,, and the long DOMINANT PIG FARMs creating Physteria tho you woud know your fish had it huge black spot on your animal,, unless i cant tell yet maybe oceans are infected too

  • Very good video! Yes ago I had a Jane Fonda tape that I listened to as I walked and she said the same—to walk out of the hip area, let that large glute muscle propel you forward. It works!! And it firms up those muscles. Swinging the arms is so imp too, as the Doctor said.

  • if you not losing weight STOP EATING THE FKIN FAT
    NO SUCH THING AS GOOD FAT (except algea flax chia,, and leafy greens AND THATS IT) 99% OF ALL OTHER FATS ARE ALL STUPID,,, YOUR BODY MAKES THE ONLY FAT YOU NEED by himself,,
    Old Corrupted Media keeps blaming sugar,, ITS ALWAYS BEEN THE FAT (ofc all transformed sugar are OBVIOUSLY BAD,, BUT EVERY FKIN ONE KNOWS THIS,, NO ONE SEEM TO KNOW ABOUT FAT) i mean the fkin word should be enough,, OUR ANCESTORS KNEW THIS,,

    can you believe HOW SCIENCE ONLY MADE US REGRESSED on nutrition,, you can twist up scientic research SOOO MUCHHH IN SOOO MANY BRILLIANT AND CREATIVE WAYs,, that tHOSE WITH THE MONEY PUBLICIZE THEIR MOST BRILLiantly manipulated researches TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF EDUCATION,, through MANY EXtremely poppular scientific journals and magazines in the highest levels of educations (also doctors HAVE ALMOST NONE OR NO NUTRITIONAL COURSES AT ALL IN NUTRITION,,, making THEM THE WORSE POSSIBLE PERSON TO SEE IF YOU HAVE ANY of the 80% OF ALL HEALTh PROBLEMS IN ALL AMERCA and 75% in euro,, but at least euro are surrounded by more asian culture then we are,, so they more aware that potatoes DONT MAKE YOU FKIN FAT IDIOTS,, ITS THE FKIN FAT YOU PUT ON YOUR POTAtoes,, oh but its not a lot you say,, i used to think i didnt put a lot either,,, moderation is a corrupted brilliant word,, even the word a little,, THEY BOTH DONT MEAN ANYTHING in terms of quantity)

    you dont moderate drugs & cigarettes,, vegan is much easier then you think,, only when you cheat that its hard,, teasing and numbing your taste buds with overactive concentrated fat sugar and salt,, i cant fkin taste the beans and the rice with all that salted soy sauce,, i cant fkin taste the salad with all this fat

  • What a great video my favorite of all your videos by far. I’m sure I will be watching this and working with this daily for awhile. Thank you for sharing!!!

  • Two weeks now and I’m still taking my time to get past 90 degree angle. It takes me about 15 mins of gradually building up to 90 degrees. Then only then I can go max aprox 110 degrees. But some ppl are telling me I should be going straight to 90 first go. I’m still no where near straightening my leg on chair lifting my leg straight out but can do it lying on floor lifting my leg straight up. I’ve been on crutches from day one and now I’m practicing with one crutch on my good side once I get going I’m doing better. I shall be doing your exercises on walking without any crutch or stick soon as poss. Thank you for really good help on understanding how it really is. It don’t happen overnight obviously like some ppl think or have been told. My supervisor thinks I’m going to be back in work in 6 weeks of opp cos she’s heard someone say they were able to go to work after 6 weeks then find out the person she knows has a sit down in office job. I’m a caretaker up and down stairs all day carrying mop buckets brooms and other cleaning stuff 32 blocks to clean over 5 days. So ppl who haven’t experienced total knee replacement should keep quiet. Thanks again for this helpful video

  • This is fantastic! I’ve been asking this question because I’m used to my body accommodating an injured knee for 40 years. I will do these!

  • Thank you so much. It’s gonna be very helpful to me, to follow your Physiotherapy tips to walk well. Four weeks ago I had a knee replacement surgery, I am doing well, but still numb on one side of the knee, and swelling little bit. I hope, It will be getting better day by day.

  • I have lost 10lbs in just one month by following diet plan from NextLevelDiet. It’s really a great tool. I recommended it to my family members and we all started to eat and live healthier. Long live #nextleveldiet.

  • thank u so much this video helped me to walk.. as i didnt walk from last 5 years because i forgot how to walk god bless u thank u

  • Unbeknownst to me I’d been practicing desensitization. I had knee replacement done January 28th of this year so I’m just a month out. I’m doing really well and I attribute some of that wellness which translates into mobility flexibility and strength to to that concept of relaxing the muscles letting them behave naturally and also a lot of ice. One activity that seems outwardly unorthodox was in the morning while still in bed and after doing some stretching and flexing in the bed I would swing my butt to the headboard and get it as close to the headboard as possible so that I could raise my legs up onto the wall. Once I was in a comfortable position with a pillow underneath my lower back I would let my legs slowly on their own sink down into a comfortable squat. It wasn’t forced and when it became uncomfortable I would slide my foot up the wall which engaged my quad glute and hamstring that wasn’t comfortable but that’s physical therapy. I did this two or three times a day and with each time I could see improvements and the flexion of my leg. as a result in physical therapy we’ve had to work more on straightening my leg than bending my leg. I am 130 flexion and zero straightness. Let me know what you think about using the wall and gravity allowing your legs to relax into a comfortable squat

  • Hi I need therapy on bending this knee I have very little rage. My surgery was February 28 2020 I haven’t had outside therapy cause of the pandemic

  • This video should be called “Benefits of walking” as there is not a single piece of advice about improving your gait and walking properly. He is just listing the benefits walking has for an individual as well as the benefits physio provides.

  • Whenever I walk one side of my body gets more tired and in pain than the other and I have a bit of a limp even though I’m healthy.
    So thankyou for this video����

  • We’ve also met Bob, and are using him for a video to advertise the Mayor of Bexley’s chosen charity as parkinsons UK, Dartford & Bexley Branch. He’s a great guy! We’re hoping you might want to use our video to promote the charity, and it’s nearly ready to be released for the borough of bexley. Get in touch if this is of interest to you.
