Because of the quick walking with the specially designed poles the whole muscular-skeletal is worked-out. The cyclic movement leads to a diagonal between the arms and the legs. The arm, back and leg muscles are strengthened that way. The poles should be used underneath the body’s centre of gravity. Dragging one’s poles and slow walking only has one effect: None. Dynamic movements are the most important part of Nordic Walking.
It is sport-scientifically proven that every work-out is enhanced in high altitudes. This effect can definitely be seen and felt in Oberlech, which is located at 1,700 m above sea level. Only a short work-out already has a great effect on your body.
