We have a new video giving a sneak peak into what goes into the Road, one of Earth Treks Fitness Programs.
The Road is meant to give participants a strong physical-training edge to their climbing. This is a no-joke course that will be physically demanding regardless of your level of fitness. It is intended to become a part of a climber’s regular routine of fitness training throughout the year.
Many routines will be body-weight routines. Other routines may employ “unconventional” methods of resistance outside the scope of what a “regular” gym can offer. As an example, during a session participants could be expected to do a set of chin-ups, swing a sledgehammer and then drag a 250lb tire.
All workouts will be geared towards helping participants realize climbing-specific physical goals. In addition to the workouts, participants will receive additional “homework” assignments and/or specific nutritional recommendations.
