A. I’m going to need to develop some pretty sick cardiovascular endurance.
B. Carrying a 35-45lb backpack, especially for four days, will wear the shit out of my back. It could easily cause me to hunch over like crazy, resulting in some serious back pain. To avoid this, I’m going to need to develop some serious strength endurance in my upper back area, my entire core, and entire posterior chain in general to prevent this from happening.
C. I also had a lower back injury in early January. I will need Mike to create a conditioning program that will emphasize strengthening the lower back and fixing the issue, while avoiding aggravating it any further.
The Program - first 3 weeks of the 7 week routine:
MONDAY: Structural Balance/Endurance 1
TUESDAY: Lactic Power Intervals Mixed with Band Work Followed by Ab Circuits
WEDNESDAY: Structural Balance/Strength
THURSDAY: Lactic Power Intervals Mixed with Band Work Followed by Ab Circuits
FRIDAY: Structural Balance/Endurance 2
SUNDAY: Tempo Hike. Gradually add weight each week. I aim to be just 30-40% shy of the length/duration of the climb around week 6 or so.
