Nordic walking poles - the right length is important!
Nordic walking - the endurance trend with the sticks not only burns a lot of calories, cardio training is also extremely easy on the joints. Nordic endurance sports are perfect for beginners and returners. When walking with sticks, the upper body is also trained. The muscles in the shoulder girdle in particular are activated and strengthened by the stick insert.
The most important equipment for Nordic Walking are the Nordic Walking poles. The correct length of the poles is crucial in order to be able to perform the correct Nordic Walking technique. Technical features such as "the long arm" and the opening and closing of the hands can only be carried out properly if the length of the Nordic Walking poles is exactly adapted to your own height. Using a simple formula, the ideal Nordic Walking poles can easily calculate length: height x 0.66.
