Being healthy at both 60 and 70 is quite possible if you are not lazy and lead a healthy lifestyle. So thinks the actor and producer Leonid Yarmolnik.
To do this, it is not at all necessary to torture yourself with hard training or jogging. For older people, Nordic walking is more suitable. This is a type of physical activity in which the athlete is helped to move by special poles, similar to ski poles. Thus, in the process of walking, not only the muscles of the legs work, but also the back and arms. Plus, they help you not get tired too quickly.
“What makes walking with sticks different is that the chest and practically all muscle groups work. At the same time, the knee joint, the back get tired less, And the main thing is the movement. And they do it all for their own pleasure,”said Leonid Yarmolnik.

This sport is becoming more and more popular with Russians. That is why in 2019 it was included in the All-Russian register of sports. And the residents of Odintsovo were even more fortunate - in the sports park named after Larisa Lazutina, free Nordic walking trainings are held every Saturday. Anyone can join.
