Hello again and welcome back. 

As promised today is a gentle stretching session to start the weekend. I'm trying to separate the weekend from the week, even though the days seem to blur at the moment. I find it more of an incentive to do lots of jobs (and exercise) during the week if I know I can relax a bit at the weekend, guilt free. 

Stretching is as is important as exercising, particularly as we get older, it keeps our muscles flexible, strong and healthy. We need to stretch to lengthen and loosen our muscles in order to maintain a good range of motion in our joints. 

  • Stretching is especially important for our back health and posture,
  • It helps relieve tension in the neck and shoulders, 
  • It helps prevent injury,
  • After doing strenuous exercise it helps prevent muscle soreness.

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.
