i’d like to see the next few weeks of the training program. i realize that there are no shortcuts to the top, but i had been doing 30 to 60 minute hikes with a 45 lb pack for months before starting the fit to climb program, and need to speed up a few weeks to meet my climbing date. if you are limited by terrain, you can use a treadmill on an incline as a tool. other options could include stadium stairs (lots of laps) or lots of laps of a small hill. a treadmill on an incline will help build the muscles that you use to step uphill, but every step is nearly the same. also, it’s important not to forget about the downhill: half the climb will be downhill, which is a different set of muscles, and the treadmill doesn’t do a lot for those. in regards to the practice hikes and if you don’t have access to such trails with hills, would that be something that could be simulated on a treadmill with incline?
for pace, the difficulty is “medium,” so you’re shooting for a pace that has your working but moving at a pace that you can maintain for an extended period of time. you should be able to carry on a conversation while you hike. learn more about training zones and how they correlate to effort level here: thanks for all of the comments. – the rmi team john, if you’re limited to find the terrain to do 40min hikes, there is an array of things you can do. with that, having that time to exercise, you can certainly try to mimic any climbing/hiking activity over that period of time at the gym. you can switch from day to day to the stairmaster and even put a pack on with some weight! the best to get in shape for a climb is to provide a lot of variety on your workouts, juts like mountain woudl do; not always the same angle, not always the same speed, not always the same load. could you suggest more specific ideas like a workout on a treadmill at a certain speed and incline??
