What is Urban Poling?
In the following section you will learn about the basics of Urban Poling aka Nordic Walking. Furthermore, this section will cover the features of the Urban and ACTIVATOR Poles as well as the research surrounding its many benefits for a variety of populations.Agenda
For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
