| Nordic Blading.
Nordic Blading is an extremely effective form of exercise
which employs special poles to train the muscles of the upper
body. As a completely new and exhilarating way of achieving
all-round fitness, Nordic Blading is presently enjoying a
boom in popularity.
The poles bring extra speed to blading. By learning the basic
pole thrusts you can both increase your speed and develop
your upper body strength. The numerous benefits of cross-country
skiing are well known. These same benefits may also be achieved
through Nordic Blading. For those with more modest fitness
goals Nordic Blading offers a safe alternative to regular
blading as the poles provide two additional points of support.
It is easier and safer to stop during rapid movements thanks
to the support provided by the poles. The use of poles also
increases energy consumption as additional muscle groups are
worked. In Nordic Blading effort is distributed between all
the major muscle groups. The arms, shoulders and chest muscles
are worked while the abdominals become firmer. Whereas the
upper torso remains relatively passive during regular blading,
Nordic Blading serves to increase both the strength and endurance
of the upper body muscles.
