To the start


Nordic walking is another way of walking, which is much more active. Nordic Walking is an enhanced walking technique that uses poles to work your upper body as well as your legs. It gives you a highly effective all over workout that doesn’t feel like one! The principle is very simple: it is a question of accentuating the natural swinging movements of the arms during walking and propelling the body forward using two sticks which allow you to go faster and further .When done correctly, it can engage up to 80% of your muscles (triceps, abdominals, glutes, etc.) and offer an intense cardio-respiratory workout.The pace is faster than in traditional walking, energy expenditure is increased and fatigue is less felt thanks to the support of the poles. Unlike running, Nordic walking puts less strain on joints than other activities.
This activity takes the strain off your joints, improves your cardio-pulmonary capacity, strengthens your muscles across the board and stimulates your blood circulation.
Try out this intermediate-level route if you are physically active every week or if you want to increase the difficulty of your outing.
