Using Trekking Poles the Right Way
If you’re like me and bought some trekking (hiking) poles you’re probably using them wrong, or at least started off using them wrong. Rather than me trying to explain, I’ll allow Bigfoot explain in his video on YouTube.
I’ve watched several of Bigfoot’s videos on YouTube has a lot of useful content. So if you’re wanting to get more into hiking like me and don’t want to make all the same mistakes follow his channel. One thing though, unless your budget is really constrained (like mine) probably will want to go to somewhere like REI to get poles, the ones from Wal-Mart do not have any padding so you’ll likely have raw skin or blisters among other things.
