Nordic walking. How easy is it to keep the shape during the New Year holidays?
Going for a run or going to a fitness club on the January holidays is a test that not everyone can do. We know a more humane and equally effective way. Nordic walking is an easy and affordable sport that will help out under any circumstances. We will tell about it together with the instructor Ekaterina Kaldina .
Sports for seniors
Pole walking is still fanned by a lot of stereotypes. Let's deal with the most important thing: initially, this sport had nothing to do with grandmothers. Ski imitation is the progenitor of nordicwalking. Few grandma can cope with such a task. And what we see in city parks at group classes for pensioners is just walking with sticks, and not nordicwalking in the form in which it was conceived by Finnish athletes. Such training is actively used by skiers and Finnish special forces as an excellent alternative for working out endurance. Due to the fact that the poles relieve the load from the lower limbs and decently load the muscles of the torso, the walker can significantly increase the training time, while maintaining the desired heart rate zone.

Is Nordic walking for weight loss effective?
information on the network, for an hour of technical Scandinavian walking, up to 700 calories are burned and up to 90% of the muscles are used. In fact, this is more of a myth than reality. Properly performed Nordicwalking really guarantees excellent results in fat burning and the inclusion of the maximum amount of muscle fiber in the work. But, perhaps, only Shipulin and Björndalen are capable of 90%.
The real average figure with proper technical walking is 400-500 calories per hour. Which is also very pleasing: one serving of New Year's Olivier or a piece of fragrant Christmas cake worked out.

What other advantages does walking with sticks have?
There is another cool bonus of Nordic walking, oh which few people tellno. Fast technical walking with poles is a type of so-called vibration training. The double hydrodynamic effect of the heel and stick hitting the ground vibrates the walls of the blood vessels and helps the heart to pump blood. The increased blood circulation picks up all unnecessary processed products (toxins) and removes them from the body much more actively. As a result, we get the normalization of metabolism at the cellular level, and happy mitochondria. Add to this the increased saturation of cells with oxygen - training takes place in the fresh air - and you will get ideal fitness with gentle exercise and guaranteed results.
