Abstract This study compared the physiological responses (oxygen consumption and energy expenditure) of Nordic Walking to regular walking under field-testing conditions. Eleven women (M age = 27.1 years, SD = 6.4) and 11 men (M age = 33.8 years, SD = 9.0) walked 1,600 m with and without walking poles on a level, 200-m track. For women, Nordic Walking resulted in increased oxygen consumption (M = 14.9 ml·kg1·min−1 , SD = 3.2 vs. M = 17.9 ml·kg1·min−1 , SD = 3.5; p < .001), caloric expenditure (M… Expand
