Time to try Nordic walk­ing?

Woman & Home - - W&h Walking -

us­ing poles to help pro­pel you for­wards means you get a full body work­out while re­duc­ing the load on your joints. “It ex­er­cises your up­per body while tak­ing pres­sure off your knees and legs,” ex­plains dr me­lanie Wynne-jones.

Keep the poles be­hind your body, point­ing di­ag­o­nally back­wards. then, as your foot strikes the ground, move your op­po­site arm to waist height and plant the pole level with the heel of the op­po­site foot. choose poles that are the right height – ad­justable ones are best. We love these nordic walk­ing poles, £34.99, moun­tain­ware­house.com
