CALORIE BURN DEPENDS ON INTENSITY AND DURATION.
The calories burned in walking depends on your body weight, for example, a 100 kg guy walking at a pace of 4 kmph will burn comparatively more calories than a guy of 70 kgs walking at the same pace in a given interval of time.
Also, walking fast or brisk walk burns more calories than a normal relaxed walk.
So, by increasing your walking pace you can increase the number of calories burn.
CALORIE BURN DEPENDS ON THE SURFACE OR TERRAIN YOU WALK
Walking on a smooth straight surface is easy than walking on an inclined surface or an irregular surface.
Walking at an incline demands more struggle and efforts , which in turn force body to burn more calories. Moreover, incline walk is also considered good for toning of your legs and calf muscles.
So, if you are used to and bored walking on a straight surface, start walking at an incline surface or an uphill or downhill or to a mountain terrain, which will be fun , adventure and a new exciting way to burn more calories.
HOW TO DESIGN YOUR WALKIING WORKOUT
