The Training For Trekking Podcast

Jun 22, 2020

In this episode, I discuss the right and the wrong way's for a hiker to use jump training (i.e. jump squats, lunge jumps etc.) in their workouts.
I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with jump training. On the one hand, I KNOW that if applied right, it can be incredibly beneficial for hikers.
On the other hand, I know that if applied wrong, it carries an unnecessary risk of pain and injury.
And, unfortunately, 95% of people using jump training in their workouts, are using it wrong...
So today, I explore in-depth my thoughts around this subject. So you can understand why I shake my head at so many workouts I see online, and you can be empowered to make intelligent decisions with this type of training.
You will learn:
  • Why it is a mistake to use jump training to develop your cardio or muscular endurance
  • An unusual method of jump training which can be incredibly beneficial for hikers (particularly at helping your descents)
  • How jump training might be applied in helping you recover from ankle injuries
  • My favourite form of jump training, which I think is incredibly useful for hikers
  • How to use this type of training to improve your strength workouts
