Every trek demands excellent physical fitness. Focus on three major aspects- cardiovascular endurance, strength training, and trek specific training. For cardiovascular fitness, begin by jogging 5 km everyday. You should ideally be able to cover 5 km within 25 to 30 minutes depending on your trek difficulty level. Target exercises that will strengthen your core, hip, knee, and back muscles. Include squats and planks, and regulate the number of reps and sets as per the difficulty level of your trek. For trek specific training, include stair climbing with a heavy but well supported backpack. You can also take short hikes with steep inclines to adjust to uneven trails. Read More.
