The Training For Trekking Podcast

Sep 29, 2019

In this episode, I discuss EXACTLY what a hiker or trekker can do in their training if they always get out of breath during ascents.
One of the most common questions I hear from trekkers is  
"I am fine while hiking on the flat. But the second I come to a bit of elevation, I turn into a red faced, sweaty, out of breath mess... What can I do to stop this?"

Well if this is you, I have some bad news for you... no matter how much you hike, this probably isn't going to change.

But that doesn't mean you have to accept it!

If you follow the advise in this episode, you can turn those ascents from a heart pumping, gasping affair into your strongest section on the trail!

You will learn:

  • Why only hiking on the weekends is just not enough to improve your fitness
  • Two simple types of aerobic workouts I HIGHLY recommend you incorporate into your week
  • How strength training can turn any type of elevation into a walk in the park
  • The type of training (which I usually am firmly against for trekkers!) which can be very useful in this situation
  • A handy breathing technique which can help you stay in control on those hills (plus a simple progression on how to train it!)
