Walking Poles, also known as hiking poles or walking sticks, are an indispensable hiking equipment that serve to support walkers while they are on rough terrain and to give them balance on uneven terrain. Walking sticks are lightweight and compact. They can be carried in one's pocket or hung from a backpack. Some Walking Poles have small handles so that the users' hands do not have to rest on the grips. While some walking sticks come with removable stands, many models do not. This makes it difficult to store them, especially when they are light enough to be carried in one's pocket.
Some people may choose to carry extra Walking Poles for added stability during a hike, especially if they know they will need it. A walking stick is primarily used as a source of support during a hike. It gives an elderly or weak person the strength he or she needs to maintain a stable footing and to move around. It can also increase the fitness level of a beginner hiker since it helps increase muscle control, balance, and flexibility. In general, using walking poles during hiking creates more calories burned and a better workout than using a flat pack, mountain shoes, or other footgear.
Regular walking can be very boring. That is why people take up Walking Pole exercises to beat boredom. However, regular walking cannot be done every day. For instance, if you are going to walk to work or school, it would be better if you do so only once in the morning or right after work. Doing such activities three times a week can be very helpful to those who want to lose weight, build fitness, and improve cardiovascular fitness.

A Walking Pole helps people lose weight by improving their fitness levels. A standard Walking Stick has a regular length, about three feet, which is the right length for beginners. Beginners should start off with a Walking Stick that has a shorter arm. After two weeks of Walking Pole usage, most users can go on and use the full length stick to reduce stress and increase fitness.
Apart from providing health benefits, there are other practical reasons why you should get a Walking Stick. According to researchers, the wearing of walking sticks may reduce back pain, reduce injuries, and provide comfort when carrying bags and clothing. Nordic walking poles may also reduce stress, promote good circulation, and reduce heart rate.
Finally, using walking poles can improve balance, decrease fatigue, and provide a more stable walking workout. In addition, as you lose weight, the stick can also help maintain your ideal weight. With all these benefits, getting yourself a walking pole is certainly worth the investment.
