Circuit training for hikers & mountaineers.
Is your next hiking holiday approaching and you want to get in shape for it? Strength training for hiking is an important part of the preparation. Wobbly legs will make your next hiking trip unpleasant. And you want to enjoy your hiking holiday, right?
Our advice: improve your overall condition for hiking.
Strength training for hiking will benefit you as a hiker or mountain climber.
The circuit training is repeated three times. After each exercise, move on to the next one. Allow no more than 20 seconds of rest. This keeps your cardiovascular system working hard.
Perform strength training for hiking two to three times a week.
Give your muscles enough time to regenerate by allowing at least one day of rest between sessions.
Strengthen your lower abdominal muscles.
Lie on your back and clamp the BLACKROLL® between your feet. The arms lie loosely beside the upper body. Activate the abdominal muscles and lift the stretched legs off the floor.
Strengthen your upper back muscles.
Place the MULTI BAND around your feet and grasp two loops. Pull your hands towards your upper body at the level of your belly button. Your upper body remains upright and does not move. Slowly stretch your arms again and bring them back to the starting position under tension.
Strengthen your lateral torso muscles and promote the stability you need for hiking.
Place your left forearm on the floor, place the BLACKROLL® under your feet and come into side support. The shoulder is above the elbow and the legs are stretched over each other. Make sure that the body forms a straight line and the hips do not sag.
Strengthen your gluteal muscles.
