The Training For Trekking Podcast

Apr 26, 2020

In this episode, we talk about muscular endurance for hikers and why it is one of the single most important aspects of fitness for the trail.
Muscular endurance is so incredibly important for a hiker to develop. And it is one of the most specific elements of fitness, which can help you to hike comfortably and capably all day long. 

However, the word 'endurance' is a bit of a buzz word in the fitness world. And this can lead many hikers to get a bit confused about what it is, why it is so important and how to actually develop it.

So today, I explore the details of muscular endurance training for hikers. You will learn:
  • What muscular endurance actually is (and why it is SO essential for hikers to develop)
  • Why there is a difference between muscular endurance for general gym goes and hikers (there is a good chance your local personal trainer won't understand this)
  • A few common mistakes I see from hikers trying to incorporate this type of training 
  • Four great methods of developing muscular endurance for hiking (plus all the details you need to put this into action)
