Welcome back, I hope you're having a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Following on from Wednesdays class when we were focusing on Movement and using as many different muscles in our bodies as possible, today we are going to try and stretch as much of our bodies from top to toe (or in reality toe to top).

A really important stretch to help us with our Nordic Walking technique is mobilising our ankles so we can make the most of our footroll. Whenever we are driving or sitting at a desk or table our feet are in a fixed and rigid position, so the feet exercises we are doing today will help us have more active feet. Don't worry if you can't open out your ankle as much as I have, not everyone has the same flexion, but doing these exercises regularly will certainly help.

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.
