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
- 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
