Description

Technique based refresher sessions for Nordic walkers. Let Katie and Emma from Nordic4 help you gain the most benefits from your Nordic walking. Learn how to fully utilise and develop your Nordic walking technique to engage key muscle groups to give a fuller body workout. Open ground, slopes, or uneven ground…there is technique behind it all, ensuring that you can both enjoy and benefit from your Nordic walking in a way that is right for you. Dr. Thorwesten of the University of Munster, Germany, showed that muscle exertion in the arms (11-14%), core, and legs increased when walking with poles, as opposed to regular walking, and the participant’s endurance increased significantly. However, the benefits were seen only in those who used the correct Nordic Walking technique.
