Training for Dummies
I wanted to put together a training program simple enough that even I could understand it. I believe the above image fulfills that criteria.
Fuel is very important and very often overlooked especially in the great outdoors. Fuel includes water.
Rest fairly self explanatory. It's important to give your body time to repair and become stronger. Thus reducing thelikelihoods of injuries.
Overload The training itself. Make it specific to your aims. e.g. Theres no point cycling to train for climbing. Overload the muscles you want to improve. I remember climbing when I was younger untill my arms were even too tired for the beginner routes, then I would go and struggle to drink a cup of tea using two hands.
