Hello again and welcome back.

Sometimes it's hard to motivate ourselves to do the more strenuous exercises that we know are going to take some effort. Going for a walk is easy, as we know our route and we're distracted by the scenery or the conversation, and the time passes relatively quickly. Similiar to HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) sessions, strength exercises have far reaching benefits and although require greater effort than going for a walk, can be done in a short space of time. It's so important to do strength training as part of our exercise routine, and here's why:

  • Increases bone density by stressing the bones and in turn helps reduce osteoporosis
  • Helps manage weight loss by burning calories during and after exercising
  • Helps build muscle which helps increase your metabolism
  • Increasing muscle strength helps reduce the risk of injury, which is particularly important as we age, helping our balance, posture and stability.

Remember to build up slowly and do strength exercises regularly, you'll be surprised how quickly you improve. Keep up the good work, well done!

These workouts have been designed for clients of Nordic Walking East Anglia, who have all been taught the correct Nordic Walking technique by a qualified British Nordic Walking Instructor.  They have also been shown how to perform these exercises in face to face lessons; this film is merely a prompt. Individuals participate in these exercises at their own risk and must ensure they have adequate and non-slip floor space in which to participate and agree that they have no health concerns that prevent them from taking part.  These exercises are designed to be carried out outside, however, if individuals perform the warm-up and cool-down sessions indoors there is a danger of collision with or damage to furniture, light fittings, etc. as well as potential for injury.
