Nordic Walking

You may have seen people dragging these things around, but they just didn't have anyone to show them how to get their heart rate jacked through the roof. Went to a training yesterday at Z4F to learn how to instruct people on the different ways to use the poles. Like I said yesterday you see these being used by lots of Germans in Europe, but even they tend to drag them around. I found it to be a great way to practice using upper body for XC Skiing it was also a nice way to make a walk into something a little more interesting and taxing yet not as intense as running. I am planning on using these things on my recovery days, but you can run and do plyos with them to if you want to make it really intense.
