Weight Vest Training for Mountain Climbing
Incorporating a Weight Vest into Your Climbing Training Program
Mountain climbing is much more than simply going up a hill. Mountain climbing (or mountaineering) is the sport - a hobby to some and to others a profession. It combines hiking, skiing, and naturally, climbing mountains. With so many disciplines available to a mountain climber, your training will vary depending on your chosen techniques. Resistance Wear can help regardless of discipline.
When you're ready to set out on a climb, you'll likely have quite a bit of gear with you. The beauty of Resistance Wear weighted training vests is that you can customize the weight to your particular situation. You can train with the exact weight and weight distribution that your pack will have! Be ready for those tough climbs by preparing your body to carry that additional weight. While standing at the base of the hill with your climb in front of you can be exhilarating, that excitement will wear off once you start out and fatigue starts setting in. Aerobic training will be critical to allow you to perform at your best when you get tired. A mountain climbing training program that utilizes the Resistance Wear weight vest can give you the edge you need to get to the apex.
Doing push-ups, pull-ups, squats and sit-ups using a Resistance Wear vest should be the basis of a mountain climbing training program. Additionally, with so much walking and climbing on the mountain, jogging with the vest will be very helpful as well. These functional exercises build flexibility, strength and stamina to allow you to be the best mountaineer you can be. Benefits to this type of training are numerous: stronger muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments, less fat, more muscle and a higher metabolism.
