In this episode, I discuss one of my core coaching philosophies, and why I believe that it is much more effective to chase practical training strategies for hikers (as opposed to what might be considered 'optimal')
Simple Training For Hikers
One of my core philosophies are a coach, is to present and share training and preparation strategies which are practical for a hiker to follow.
My whole intention with the information I share (and use myself) is how can a hiker, trekker or backpacker, see the best results, with the least amount of effort and stress?
I firmly believe that this is the key to success for 99% of people out there.
And this is also why I rarely talk about what is 'optimal' in your training.
Because optimal is almost never practical.
And if something is not practical, then it probably isn't a great recommendation for the majority of people.
In this episode, I explore this subject in a bit more detail and talk you through a few classic examples of 'optimal' training recommendations.
