Alpine Fitness I - 8 Weeks (Intermediate)
Scott Ferguson and George BiekerAll plans by this Coach
This program is designed for climbers who are not currently participating in regular exercise training and want to move towards more preparation for the alpine terrain. The overall goal of this plan is to introduce our climber to structured exercise training and to build a foundation of endurance and strength that will enable them to complete more rigorous goal specific training in the future.
This plan is perfect for weekend warriors or rock climbers who have been climbing for a while and want to prepare themselves for more technical objectives in the mountains.
This plan is perfect for climbers wanting to transition to structured training to tackle their first 14'er or multi-pitch alpine climb in the summer. All strength training sessions are designed so that they can be completed with minimal gym equipment. Emphasis is placed on getting outside and running/hiking to build solid training habits. Once instilled, these habits will enable you to tackle more difficult training regimens in the coming weeks and months. In a sense, you are "training to train." The rock specific exercises are better done with access to a rock climbing gym, though pitched climbing will work if needed.
