Hi trekkers welcome to Himalayan Hikers, intermediate trekking training plan. This trek-fit training plan is specifically designed by fitness experts to safely progress your fitness.
Trek physical fitness preparation before your arrival for the Uttarakhand, and Himachal trekking, is recommended to enjoy with us the adventure holiday trip at its best.
Defying gravity and walking for a long duration on a steep slope with a rucksack/day-pack require a moderate level of strength and endurance training. Carrying a bag pack, however light, can become a strain after a while. A fitness regime will help you be in good shape before the trek.
In terms of speed, make sure you’re able to jog 5 km in 35 minutes before starting of the trek. If you are 45 years old and above, your target should be completing at least 3 km within 29 minutes before you go on the trek.
This is another area you should work on. There is a lot of trekking distance that you will cover carrying your bag packs and trekking along with your bag pack is not a very easy task. You have to walk on uneven terrain during the trek. It could be taxing for your legs. For this, strengthening your legs will help. You can do some squats to strengthen them. Do around 3 sets of squats, with 8 squats in each set.
Another aspect that will help you trek comfortably is flexibility. For this, you can do some stretching exercises – stretch your hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, lower back muscles and shoulders regularly. On your trek, it is important that you arrive on the slopes with your muscles relaxed. Carrying a bag pack, however light, can become a strain after a while. These exercises will help you to be in good shape before the trek.
The way is easy to mountain - Make sure you are medically fit for a trek or take professional advice if you feel you are unable to judge yourself.
Mountain Life is about living amongst the world outside – experiencing the abundance of character, tradition, adventure and exploration that it provides. The trek provides a great opportunity for trekkers to see the scenic beauty and experience the life of remote villages of Garhwal Himalayas.
Trekking in the mountains may look fun, but it is not for the faint of heart.
