Well, well. We all know that Nordic working works your arms, legs, waist and butt, but did you know it also exercises your brain?!
Research suggests that the unilateral squeezing of your left and right hand stimulates brain activity in the opposite hemisphere of your brain. This can improve memory, memory recall and creativity.
The participants in the studies were asked to squeeze a ball. With Nordic walking you squeeze and release the pole handle, but the basic principle is the same.
