The Training For Trekking Podcast

Dec 2, 2019

In this episode, I discuss a number of popular training methods in the hiking and adventure community which are entirely overrated.

When you are training for a hike, trek or mountain adventure, there are a million ways to go about your preparation.

Some of them are good. Some of them are bad. And some of them sound good in theory, but in actual fact are not worth your time...
You may see plenty of people using these methods in their training... you may see lots of 'experts' recommending them on the internet... but after listening to this episode, you will understand why people do these things and why they are best avoided.

You will learn:

  • A common recommendation for endurance athletes which is entirely unnecessary for hikers and trekkers
  • The most well-marketed fitness fad in recent years (which is the equivalent of taping up your mouth and breathing through a straw)
  • An incredibly popular training method which is not very effective for hikers and trekkers
  • A nutrition strategy which is best left for hardcore mountaineers
  • A common mistake hikers make which may be severely compromising the benefits of your strength training
  • The single worst exercise in the entire fitness industry (and why there are absolutely zero reasons a trekker should ever do this, no matter what your trainer may say...)
