Today I share a really common problem I see from mountaineers with their training...
Injury prevention and risk minimisation should be the number one priority for any mountaineers training plan.
Well, you can't train when injured. And you certainly can't hit the mountain when you are carrying an injury either.
Mountaineers are often recommended to do HUGE amounts of training in their week. But is this necessary?
Training for mountaineering is a complicated subject. And understanding the deeper reasoning behind training choices, long term structure, progression, and periodisation is important for any mountaineer with serious aspirations.
However, saying this, sometimes it helps to get some clear direction on what you should be doing. So you can dive in headfirst, and learn the reasoning behind it all later.
So with this being said, today I want to share with you one of my favourite strength workouts for mountaineers.
Interval training can be an incredibly powerful method of preparation for a mountaineer.
Whether it is long, short or sprint intervals, there are dozens of legitimate methods of interval training a mountaineer can incorporate to increase their performance on the mountain substantially.
But no matter what type of interval training you are using, there are a few fundamental rules a mountaineer should follow, to get the best benefits.
And today, I want to share them with you:
