BMC TV Videos Online - Trekking Poles & Clothing Layers

Preparing to film between the showers

Two videos from the filming I did for the BMC on a rainy day in the Lake District last month (see account here) are now online. You can me, looking somewhat bedraggled, in How To: Use Walking Poles and How To: Use A Layering System.


  1. I really like the blog.I have shared your site with many friends and family. It is always a pleasure to read.

  2. Poles reduce the impact of hiking on knee joints and leg muscles. Arm and shoulder muscles support and relieve the leg muscles. With the basic "hands above the heart" position necessitated by the Balance Walking Poles, circulation is improved and heart rate is reduced. The "rhythm" created by walking with poles leads to relaxed, more regular breathing and increased stamina.

  3. Also known as walking poles, hiking sticks, and trekking poles, best hiking poles are hard to find, but once you do, these are a popular hiking accessory used to provide walkers with steadiness on rough terrain and to aid with their rhythm. See more http://survival-mastery.com/diy/useful-tools/best-hiking-poles.html
