If you're trying to get in shape, you might want to skip the run and drop those free weights.
Researchers from the London School of Economics and Political Science analyzed data of 50,000 people who were at least 13 years old and found those who walked briskly 30 minutes a day were more likely to have smaller waistlines and lower body mass indexes than those who did higher-intensity workouts.
Now, this study is correlational, so we can't say for sure that walking is better for you than running.
