Strength training is a long-overlooked part of optimal training for endurance sports, and especially important for demanding outdoor sports such as hillwalking, fell running and mountaineering. 

The aim of this program is to provide an effective strength training program that can be done alongside your regular outdoor activities or combined with other aerobic training

It's is designed to be done at home with a few key pieces of equipment, but can also be done in a commercial gym or the 'training area' of most indoor climbing walls. 



Equipment required:

  • An exercise matt or, comfortable surface to lie on.

  • A set of resistance bands, either large loop or tube bands with handles are fine.

  • A pull-up bar.

  • A suspension trainer or set of gymnastic rings


  • A set of 'mini band' or 'thigh band' resistance bands
