Healthy Lifestyle Program: Nordic Walking

On a recent trip to Minneapolis, my girlfriend introduced me to Nordic walking. And I've been hooked ever since. One promotional site says you work 90% of your muscles with this relatively effortless technique. I've found it improves my posture, works my triceps and back muscles (lats) and leaves me feeling refreshed but not worn out.

The benefits for healthy living and healthy weight loss are obvious. But consider this: I've walked for the last 10 days in a row -- I look forward to it! And I'm not walking my usual 30-40 minutes. I'm going an hour each time. I need to take a day off today because my foot is hurting and it needs rest.

Not much more I can say about this except to encourage you to give it a try. Check out this youtube video that shows details of Nordic walking. And then try it yourself for serious weight loss or fitness help.

I've tried this before and found it enjoyable, too. I think people in my neighborhood might look at me crazy for doing it, but, hey, if you like it, then do it! :)

Yes, I got a few looks from my neighbors at first, but now they're used to it! Even interested....

For whatever reason the link is missing on the post for me...

If someone is ambitious enough, could you describe it to me?
Thanks!
