A newly published article featured on the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s (CPA) blog titled “What Type of Walking Offers a Big Boost To Your Health” discusses the ins and outs of Nordic Walking, highlights the many benefits and even debunks common misconceptions of the sport.
Here is a brief excerpt from the article highlighting the difference between Nordic Walking Poles and Ski Poles:

Keep your poles more upright and in front of you. Lean forward slightly, and use the poles to help push you up the hill. If necessary, bend your elbows, but remember to transition back to the straight arm technique at the top of the hill
