Hello and welcome back. 

Today's main focus is shoulder mobility. In order to have a good Nordic Walking technique and get the full benefits we need flexibility in our shoulders. Our shoulder joint has a wide range of motion that makes it susceptible to injury or impingement, so the more exercises we do to help our shoulder mobility, the more strength and flexibility we will have in our shoulders to help maintain a pain-free range of motion.

Swinging our arms from the shoulder when we're Nordic Walking helps strenghten the shoulder muscles and those muscles between our shoulder blades, this in turn helps improve our posture.   So the most important thing to remember when you're Nordic Walking is  to have a full swing from the shoulder and not hinge at the elbow. For tips on how to achieve this see Mary's remote lesson on arm swing.

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.
