-Performance of the heart and blood circulation and also aerobic stamina improve considerably.
-Active strain exerted on muscles of respiration increases oxygen supply of the whole body.
-Muscle tension around the shoulder and the neck is released.
-Using poles, load on organs of locomotion is reduced by up to 30%, which is essential especially in a postoperative state. Nordic walking is therefore particularly suitable for postoperative rehabilitation. Incorporate it into your daily schedule: apply it while doing your chores (shopping, arranging your everyday tasks, etc.) "house-to-house".
