Want to get active this summer? There are countless amounts of hikes are waiting for you! Work your entire body while in rocky and mountainous terrain by pole hiking. The upper body motion really gets the heart rate going. You move with quicker, smaller steps, your arms are pumping and it’s almost like race walking. Using poles allows you to involve the upper body in activity that normally works mainly the legs and glutes. It’s a great way to add some intensity to your hiking.
