Remote Nordic Walking Class 30 - Backs

During lockdown it has been tempting to be quite sedentary, especially during the period when we were limited to one outdoor exercise session a day.  I have been trying to learn new skills, in particular sewing, which has been a wonderful distraction, but has led me to spend long hours sitting hunched over a machine and forgetting about good posture.  As a result, my back has been demanding attention as it has stiffened up and become quite painful.  This has inspired today's exercises, which are designed to wake up rigid backs and prepare you for a walk, as well as some stretches for afterwards, to try and 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.
