Unlike regular walking, running, and biking, Nordic Ski Walking really works the arms, shoulders, and abs. Nordic Walking includes all of the positives about walking with hand weights, but none of the negatives.
Our Nordic Walking Poles can be used in a number of ways to enhance your daily workout. Add Nordic Walking pole to your normal walking routine and you will burn up to 40% more calories and produce up to a 46% increase in energy consumption. Nordic Walking Poles can also be used while running. Running with Nordic Walking Poles will help build strength in your upper body by working your arms, shoulders and abs during the workout.
