Want to get more out of your daily walk? Try walking poles. Walking poles put the muscles in your arms, shoulders, chest and upper back through a full range of motion as you walk. The arm movement adds intensity to your aerobic workout. It also fosters balance and stability. Look for walking poles online or in a favorite sporting goods store.
