Viking Hiking


Introduction


Walking is the most fundamental of all forms of physical activity.

Viking Hiking (Nordic Walking) is an outdoor session, where you learn to walk with sticks/poles. It improves your fitness and is very effective dynamic strength exercise for the upper body.

The Session

Weekly sessions last for one hour and we aim to cover 3 miles, depending on the ability of participants and will split into slow and faster groups as necessary

We start with a little warm up on the spot.

After walking approx. 10 minutes, we break for some exercises to mobilise joints and strengthen muscles in shoulders, back, bottom and legs.

We also practise some balancing.

Then aerobically walk for 30-35 minutes.

Lastly, we take time to thoroughly stretch out all the muscles we've used.
