Train For A Longdistance Hike Andrew Skurka

6 hours agoFor example, a 30-minute run may be equivalent to a 2- or 3-hour hike because it demands more of your muscles and lungs, and applies more force to your bones, joints, and muscles. Shorter, more intense exercise is not the best training for a long-distance hike, but it’s a good compromise given pre-hike time constraints.

10 Tips On How To Plan For A Long Distance Hike


Preview

3 hours ago

1. Set a Date. No matter if it is next month or ten years from now, you should set a date. Setting a date makes it definitive and serious. Before you set a date, look into the right time of year to begin the trail and then narrow it down from there.
2. Tell People. Tell others about your adventure! Talking about your months of travel will make the trip seem more real and tangible. However, do be aware that not everyone will understand why you are choosing to leave a cozy job to live out of a backpack.
3. Set a Budget. You can’t be comfortably unemployed for weeks or months if you don’t start saving now. Set a budget. Look into similar budgets that past hikers have found adequate.
4. Invest in Good Quality and Lightweight Gear. When it comes to hiking gear, you should seek a great quality brand. Since you will be using this gear consequently for a while, a great warranty will save you some money in the long run.
5. Start Walking. Training for such a miraculous feat as a long distance hike can seem extremely overwhelming. However, the only way to train your body into hiking every day is to hike every day.
6. Don’t Over Plan. When it comes to backpacking and hiking a long distance trail, you need to let travel happen. Planning every single aspect of your trip can be overwhelming, exhausting, and frustrating if things don’t go as planned.
7. Consider Your Life at Home While You’re Gone. You should think about getting your finances and responsibilities in order before you leave. What will happen to your house/pet/spouse/job?
8. Find Resources. There is so much advice online in regards to all aspects of long distance hiking and backpacking. Now, take every opinion with a grain of salt.
9. Gain Some Weight. All hikers will lose weight after hiking for months and months. I tried to gain a good ten pounds before departure just by eating more, not eating worse.
10. Mentally Prepare. One in four thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail will actually complete the entire trail. The stats might not be in your favor but that shouldn’t stop you.

1. Economy. Like a car, your body has a fuel economy rating. The less oxygen, sugar and fat your muscles need to burn to do the same amount of work, the faster you'll be.
2. Lactate threshold. Your lactate threshold (LT) is the exercise intensity at which hydrogen ions (a byproduct of lactic acid metabolism) begin to accumulate rapidly in the blood.
3. Aerobic capacity (VO2 Max) Your VO2 max measures the amount of oxygen you consume when you exercise at maximum intensity. Having a strong heart, high lung capacity, and lots of blood vessels to carry oxygen to your muscles will improve your VO2 max.

Ultimate Hiking Workout: 6 Best Training Exercises For

1. Goblet Squats. Goblet squats are a great exercise for hikers since they target all of the bigger leg muscles including your quads, hamstrings, and glutes.
2. Step-Ups. Steps-ups target your quads and glutes, which are important muscles for climbing mountains. These can be done at any gym with a box, but if you don’t have a membership, they are easy to do at home, too.
3. Downhill Lunges. Lunges on their own make for an excellent exercise for hiking. However, one common hiking mistake is underestimating how much the downhill shreds your quads!
4. Hanging Knee Raises. At first glance, this exercise is noticeably different from those listed previously since it does not focus on your leg muscles. Instead, hanging knee raises focus on strengthening your core.
5. Kettlebell Deadlift. A kettlebell deadlift is another must-have exercise for a hiking workout routine. Deadlifts generally target the hamstrings, which are important muscles for hikers.
6. Stairmaster. Muscle strength will definitely help you while trekking, but cardio is an important factor to consider before tackling any hiking or backpacking trip.

1. Take Advantage Of Strength Training. Strength training is one of the single most underutilised training methods in the hiker’s arsenal… but it can be so incredibly beneficial!
2. Plan Your Hiking! Most hikers are pretty happy getting out on the trail to improve their fitness. However, if you are planning for a significant hike in the future, or simply want to minimise any risk of injury or pain for your hiking, a little bit of planning and a little bit of structure will go a long way!
3. Train For Elevation. For the majority of hikers, the elevation is the toughest part of the trail. Those pesky hills can get your legs burning, get you huffing and puffing and make things a serious struggle!
4. Look After Your Body. One common mistake the majority of hikers make is simply not looking after their body! Hiking and training take its toll. Many hikers I talk to are constantly battling with little niggles and pain.
5. Test Your Gear. You have probably heard this many times before. But it bears repeating. Absolutely anything you are planning on using while you are hiking, you should be testing in your training!

5 Tips For Training For A ThruHike Osprey Packs Experience

Estimated Reading Time: 8 mins
1. Walk Everywhere. In an ideal situation, the best way to train for a thru-hike is to get out into the mountains and do extended hikes that include long ascents and descents.
2. Go on Test Hikes. Test your gear on training hikes before you begin a trek that lasts weeks or months. Image via Osprey Packs. Even if you’re in shape, you’ll still want your gear, clothing, and footwear to fit properly.
3. Learn Your Pace. Walk at a comfortable pace to maximize your miles each day and avoid injuries. Image via Osprey Packs/Dan Holz. During most days on the trail, you’ll get up early, hike all day, and fall asleep around 8 p.m.
4. Prepare Your Mind. On the AT, it might be the “Virginia Blues.” On the Pacific Crest Trail, it could be relentless mosquitoes. At some point during your thru-hike, you’re going to be tested mentally, and you might even consider quitting.
5. Be Patient. Probably the best piece of advice for an aspiring thru-hiker is to be patient as you train and prepare. As you’re walking and hiking, increase the miles gradually to avoid shin splints, stress fractures, or other overuse injuries.

1. Practice hikes allow you to gradually improve endurance. "There is no magical fix for getting fit. You need a plan that you follow day after day to build up fitness. That way you don't end up feeling overwhelmed," says Patrick McCrann, founder of Performance Training Systems. Start in early spring before the summer season arrives. Find local trails with similar terrain and difficulty level as those you plan to hike in the coming months. - Short weekly hikes:Taking a short hike, 3 to 4 times a week, will help your body adjust to new terrain while you build the muscles you need to tackle tougher hikes. Improve cardiovascular strength on these hikes by moving fast, and taking minimal breaks. - Long weekend hikes:Similar to marathon training, one long hike a week is essential to seeing improvements. Go slow and take breaks; the focus of these hikes is to improve distance endurance.
