Walking

Healthy addition to HD routine, aid to recovery, waste of physical resources or neither?

As with all things I have to say it depends. But overall I think it′s a great idea for HD trainees to do a few days between their lifting sessions. Mainly for the reason you listed to aid recovery. Light walking can flush out toxins created from weight training and allow you to recover more quickly.

And there are less impact forces than with running/jogging.

Enjoying life is important. Whilst total rest (maybe) is the fastest recovery method, engaging in easy physical stufff may make you feel good, and if that is paid for by slower progress, it could be worth it, you decide.

I walk a few miles most days in the mountains at 9000 ft. altitude, usually carrying about 15 lbs., often more. Walking contributes to endurance, general fitness and weight control.
