does walking faster give more benefits than just plain walking (the same distance)?

    Well, jogging is probably the best way

    No, walking faster will not give you more benefits.

    It's about walking versus running.

    If you are obese, it might be better to walk instead of running

    Walking faster should increase your heart rate which might lead to burning more calories. Increased, sustained exertion might also increase overall fitness or endurance. That noted, if you walk faster, you'll walk for less time so the benefits might be minimal. If you are doing it for exercise, you'd probably want to increase speed while walking the same amount of time, rather than focus on distance.

    Oh, the other benefit is that you'll get where you're going sooner.

    sure does, walking with purpose is good exercise, so is going up and down stairs, or even calisthenics, not many fat recruits.......but pay attention to nutrition, we all need more minerals, iodine for adrenals, metabolism, breasts, ovaries, cycle, and much much more, pay attention and learn what your body needs ......do it....

    Yes, you'd burn more calories due to the increase intensity.

    Only if you pump your arms then it builds the arm muscle.
