There are various types of Nordic walking. One type involves taking unnaturally long steps. This type of Nordic walking is not only extremely bad for your joints and back, it is also completely unsuitable for kyBoot shoes.
‘Long-stride Nordic walking’ puts a heavy strain on the knee and hip joints. Instead of training the small muscles, it trains the outer layers of muscle and causes them to contract.
kyBoot shoes are not designed for these unnaturally long steps. Abrasion above the outsole in the heel area is a sign that your stride is unnaturally long. kybun AG cannot be held responsible for this kind of damage, as kyBoot shoes are designed for a healthy gait and posture.
We recommend micro-interval walking as a highly efficient alternative training method. The intervals between walking slowly and ‘lightly floating’ last between 15 and 30 seconds.
This change in speed is not only fun, but also highly efficient:
The ‘lightly floating’ phase activates the cardiovascular system and relaxes your muscles.
The ‘walking slowly’ phase regenerates the cardiovascular system and trains your coordination (small muscles). The slower you move, the better, because this way, you rest for a longer period of time on one foot while wearing the flexible, soft, bouncy kyBoot shoes.
We are certain that there is no healthier exercise that benefits the entire body than micro-interval walking. It is important that you only float lightly for approximately 15 seconds and walk slowly until your pulse has sufficiently recovered. This allows you to optimally burn fat.
