Pole Walking

Would learning Nordic pole walking facilitate mastery of glidewalking?

I don't believe Nordic Walking poles can "teach" you how to Glidewalk, but I have found Nordic Walking poles complement Glidewalking (once learned) on hikes.  They seem to encourage the use of the inner corset, aid in awareness of shoulder position, and can support hip hinging when necessary while navigating the trail.  Be sure to have someone knowledgable show you the proper use of the pole grips and handle straps if using hiking poles (REI staff taught me this). Knowing how to use your poles makes a big difference.  Come see me in Sacramento, and I can help you with this. I love to Glidewalk the trails!
