Q. I have less than 12 weeks until my trek, what should I do?
A. Start at Week 1 and follow the schedule. Do not skip a training session and complete all training sessions in succession until one week before your trek. Follow the taper week for your last week of training.
The program has been designed to progressively build aerobic, strength and endurance over a period of 12 weeks. It is important that with a shorter length of time to train that you don’t overtrain as this may lead to injury.
Many people follow this program to maintain their fitness after a trek so you can still use this program when you return home. (There’s always more mountains to climb!)
Q. What equipment will I need?
A. This program uses very basic equipment that can be found in any gym. If you plan to carry out the training at home you’ll need a solid step or a bench (about 40-50cm high), dumbbells, rubber barbell plate. We also recommend a timer (stopwatch or phone to time your sessions), Heart Rate Monitor (for aerobic sessions) and a backpack.
Q. I have never trained before is this program for me?
A. This program requires no previous training experience. The exercises are basic and easy to do, although some can be awkward the first time around. Be patient, carefully study the exercise descriptions and photos and use lighter weights.
We highly recommend atleast for the first few weeks that you seek exercise instruction from a local coach or personal trainer to ensure you’re performing the exercises in correct form. (Believe me, the trainer will be relieved to have a 12 week program handed to them).
