A trekking pole is a light-weight, adjustable support tool that is used to save energy and add stability on all types of terrain. These poles not only help in descending the slopes in a safe manner but also reduce the pressure on the knees.
There is evidence that trekking poles enhance the muscle-building and aerobic benefits of hiking. With trekking poles, hikers use upper body muscles they don't ordinarily engage, like biceps, latissimus dorsi (side muscles), pectorals, and triceps. Regularly engaging these muscles while swinging and placing trekking poles will strengthen them. In addition to building upper body muscles, engaging these muscles during a hike creates a full body workout, enhancing the already significant aerobic benefit of hiking.
