What About Nordic Pole Walking Compared to Other Exercise?

Walking/Jogging =40-50%, Stationary Bicycle = 30-40% compared with Nordic Pole Walking at more than 90%

This easy-to-understand secret of Nordic Pole Walking: although it is a low-impact exercise, it has maximum benefits. Why? 50 percent of your body muscles are located above the belt line, and when you Nordic pole walk not only are you doing aerobic exercise, you are also doing resistance training at the same time.

This is based on the NPW-technique. We know that the more body muscles you use during any exercise routine - the better, and with Nordic Pole Walking, you are using 90% of your muscles: YOU:

  • Decrease high blood pressure by 18mm Hg after 8 weeks [Ishikawa 1999, Diehm 2007]
