  1. Thanks very much! Helping folks preserve joints & enjoy the outdoors is so
    rewarding! Gyms are so solitary, connecting with friends while walking is
    GREAT!

  2. Tripping is BAD. Try snugging your elbows into your side, squeezing your
    shoulder blades down your back (scapular depression) and notice that your
    forearms angle out just a bit. Even 1/2 inch will help prevent the poles
    crossing in front of you. check my website for more tips? AdventureBuddies
    . NET Happy Walking!

  3. Glad you liked our posting. I would be quite interested in learning more
    about how you teach. You can reach me via my website: AdventureBuddies. NET

  4. This is a great video. I saw some of these poles in a local store and
    wondered what they were. Before taking the plunge on buying them I noted
    what they were called and came home to do some research. This video has me
    sold. It looks like a fun and easy to do exercise for someone like me!!!

  5. hmm, i didnt know this had become so popular… its just the same as
    skisticks just without snow im from the north btw 😀 proud norwegian =D

  6. Great video but I’m confused; shouldn’t the grip be released as swing back?
    It doesn’t show that in this video. Also, does anyone know how to increase
    the exertion for a more challenging walk using the poles? I am addicted to
    Nordic walking! Everyone should try it!

  7. Bought the poles.But was totally clueless,..I watched this video.Great
    basic instruction.Makes the whole thing clear.well done

  8. I love Nordic Walking soo much. It’s so funny and cool. I’m walking every
    day and sometimes in the night.

  9. Nordic walking is something I see more of in my neighborhood—there’s a
    great new book, Nordic Walking for Total Fitness, that shows how to Nordic
    walk and tells about the fitness benefits everyone will get from it–very
    fun new way to work out!

  10. Hi, I’m from Finland. Nordic walking has been a very popular for many many
    years. Personally, I am a kind of semi-bodybuilder. I’ve been seeing nordic
    walkers for many years but just recently I really realized the potential of
    it. It’s up to the walker how demanding he/she wants it to be. In uphills,
    you can even run a bit and get a real aerobic exercise. It’s an low-impact
    outdoor activity. In a word, it for every one. It’s cheap. It’s almost too
    good to be true!!

  11. Thank God for this video on how to walk with sticks. I’ve walked since I
    was a tiny baby, but never realized how wrong I was doing it. Instead of
    looking like a blonde Scandinavian Norseman, I must have appeared to be a
    circus chimpanzee all these decades. Embarrassing.

  12. Why is this better than regular walking for exercise? All I see is that
    your using some muscles in your arm, but that’s all…

  13. @miketh2005 Good Question, thanks! Nordic Walking improves focus and spine
    function – significantly, not just a little bit! We lose spine function as
    we age; Nordic Walking helps to rotate and elongate the spine by recruiting
    the muscles that support the spine – specifically the latissimus dorsi,
    lower trapezius and oblique muscles. Once you feel the power, the
    lengthened stride, the improved endurance, you’ll love the attitude you
    gain even without poles. It’s not magic, it’s healthy walking

  14. @macran3 As with any new skill, start nice and easy. Try Nordic Walking
    (and do learn optimal technique) for 5 minutes once or twice a day. Work up
    incrementally so that your body accepts the new movement. Celebrate small
    victories and then build on them. I cannot stress this enough.
    Progressively learning a new skill is the way to achieve muscle memory. For

  15. I’m 21 and lost 8 kilos in 2 months with regular nordic walking trainings,
    and a change in dietary (eating more fruits, yoghurt, eating no junk food
    at all, nor chocolate) Problem is this sport is only popular among people
    over 40, when you do a complete training it has effect for almost 95% of
    your body muscles!

  16. Thanks for asking the same question i had in mind when i came across the
    video. The answer was what I was looking for. Thanx.

  17. That’s true and that’s what you want. Optimal walking form engages spinal
    rotation – imagine someone squirting WD-40 into your spine as you walk –
    major lubrication from movement. So – obliques, lats and triceps – walking
    with ATTITUDE, walking YOUNG. Very healthy! Enjoy!

  18. This is good actually. A proper punch (in defense) should use your tricep.
    The bicep is only used to return the fist into it’s stance position.
