UPHILL hiking is indeed diverse comparing to countryside trails. Although the views are always spectacular, the physical challenge often threatens my confidence to get going.
At first, I did not know that I need to prepare. My legs were shaking, I’ve had short breaths and felt I was about to puke. If my supportive fellow backpackers weren’t there to encourage me, I could have quit halfway.
For stronger legs and hiking stamina, we need to prepare ourselves before hitting the uphill trail. Now, my mind is already set to go. What’s left to do is to condition myself physically to survive.
But, which exercise helps prepare for UPHILL hiking?
Exercise programs should be suitable to the nature of hiking you like to try. So, it is significant to know where your hiking trails are first.
