Walking with Poles
Poles will add more to your posture and upper body strength during walking
Do you love walking, but feel your shoulders, arms, and trunk are not getting a workout?
Then walking with poles may just be the exercise for you.
Adding poles to your walking can increase your upper body workout and energy expenditure.
I have applied my breast cancer rehab skills to develop targeted training and pole selection that will suit the physical challenges faced by people after breast cancer.
Training ensures that you learn to use:
easiest hand grip
best arm swing
push thru to strengthen shoulders and upper back
best shoulder position
pole type to suit your balance
Your training will take about 3 sessions.
Then practice practice practice to improve your technique.
