|The Benefits of Nordic Walking.
The most effective cardiovascular workout
Many doctors agree that Nordic walking is one of the most effective cardiovascular workouts because it works all major muscle groups in the body.
Nordic walking is also great for weight loss. By using the Nordic walking poles, you increase your heart rate on average 10-15% more than normal walking. This means you can burn well over 400 calories per hour, much more than normal walking, which only burns approximately 280. An additional energy consumption of 1500-2000 calories a week while doing physical activities reduces your risk of getting sick. You can achieve this by walking with your poles approximately 3 hours every week.
