The Training For Trekking Podcast

Aug 19, 2019

In this episode, I share some simple strategies a hiker or trekker can apply while on the trail, to help aid muscle recovery, reduce muscle soreness and prevent injury.

Physical preparation and fitness is so incredibly important for your chances of a safe, enjoyable and successful trek. However, if you have already been training, or you genuinely don't have time to get in shape, today's episode shares with you some simple strategies which can significantly improve your chances of success.

You will learn:

  • Why self-care can give you such a leg up while doing multi-day hikes or treks
  • A few trail friendly options which you can use for 'self-massage' while on the trail (and how best to do this)
  • How and why hydration makes such a difference to both your performance and comfort on the trail (plus how to ensure you never get dehydrated)
  • The simple piece of gear (which I recommend to ALL hikers) which can significantly improve your bodies ability to recover and repair (which takes absolutely zero effort at all to use)
  • An often-overlooked factor which can make or break your chances of adapting to the trail and finding your 'trail legs'
