Nordic walking in Diabetes Dialogue
July 14, 2014 | By adminis
Check out this article written by one of our very own master trainers, Barb Gormley, featured in the latest issue of Diabetes Dialogue! A certain favourite activity of ours gets a shout-out on page 44 🙂
For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
