The Training For Trekking Podcast

Dec 16, 2019

In this episode, I discuss my simple (and proven!) formula on how to prepare your body for an elevation gain hike, if you live at sea level.

One of the most common questions I hear is "Where I live is about as flat as a pancake, how can I get ready for a mountain trek?"

And unfortunately, the common answers I hear usually fall a bit short...

While things like "hit the stair master", "get your legs strong" and "climb some stairs" are definitely not wrong... to BEST prepare yourself for an elevation gain hike, you need to use a little more thought.
So today, I share with you the simple process in which I use for my clients, which can get you fit, strong and resilient to handle any elevation your hike may throw at you (and which doesn't require a single mountain to train on!)

You will learn:

  • Two essentials you need to cover when doing your trek training (this is so crucial if you only have flat tracks to train on)
  • A simple strength training plan which will help any elevation gains feel like an absolute walk in the park!
  • The BEST strength training exercise a hiker can do to prepare for elevation (which is perfect from absolute novices all the way to lifelong lifters)
  • Two types of conditioning workouts a hiker should consider when training for an elevation gain hike
  • A range of hiking specific cardio options which will be your best friend if you live at sea level
