1. Goblet Squats. Goblet squats are a great exercise for hikers since they target all of the bigger leg muscles including your quads, hamstrings, and glutes.
2. Step-Ups. Steps-ups target your quads and glutes, which are important muscles for climbing mountains. These can be done at any gym with a box, but if you don’t have a membership, they are easy to do at home, too.
3. Downhill Lunges. Lunges on their own make for an excellent exercise for hiking. However, one common hiking mistake is underestimating how much the downhill shreds your quads!
4. Hanging Knee Raises. At first glance, this exercise is noticeably different from those listed previously since it does not focus on your leg muscles. Instead, hanging knee raises focus on strengthening your core.
5. Kettlebell Deadlift. A kettlebell deadlift is another must-have exercise for a hiking workout routine. Deadlifts generally target the hamstrings, which are important muscles for hikers.
6. Stairmaster. Muscle strength will definitely help you while trekking, but cardio is an important factor to consider before tackling any hiking or backpacking trip.

Ultimate Hiking Workout: 10 Best Training Exercises For

William Mirafit.co.uk Show details

9 hours ago

1. LUNGES. Uphill work is always going to be taxing on your quads, which is why lunges will really benefit you in the long run. Not only do they isolate each leg so you can work them individually, but they’re ideal for intensifying your lower body workout.
2. SQUATS. A fantastic compound exercise that targets your posterior chain. Squats will encourage all-over muscle growth and are a great way to train heavy.
3. POOR MAN’S LEG CURL. Grab a Flat Weight Bench and lie on the ground, parallel to the bench. Put your feet up on the bench so your knees are bent at a 90-degree angle.
4. DEADLIFTS. Done correctly, deadlifts are ideal for releasing the muscle potential in your posterior chain. They’re a great way to train your hamstrings and lower back.
5. HILL SPRINTS. Never forget the amount of cardio training you’ll need to include in your training before you take on an uphill challenge such as The Three Peaks.
6. LANDMINE EXERCISES. Landmine Handles are really versatile pieces of kit. Plus we have a wide range of post and handles that you can get to vary your workout.
7. VERTICAL PLATE PRESS. Not only is ab work going to help you get ripped, but it’s also going to help you maintain your balance while out on the hills.
8. BAND WALKS. Resistance bands are massively underestimated in how much they can help you with your training. Their progressive force means they can help you push through your one-rep max at the squat rack, as well as rehabilitate old injuries.
9. PULL UPS. Having a strong back is going to really help you carry a heavy load while on the hills as well as keep you upright and strong for a long period of time.
10. BOX JUMPS. Getting some power behind your uphill climb is going to really benefit you in the long run. Plyometric exercises are ideal for helping you to be more explosive in your training.

1. Take Advantage Of Strength Training. Strength training is one of the single most underutilised training methods in the hiker’s arsenal… but it can be so incredibly beneficial!
2. Plan Your Hiking! Most hikers are pretty happy getting out on the trail to improve their fitness. However, if you are planning for a significant hike in the future, or simply want to minimise any risk of injury or pain for your hiking, a little bit of planning and a little bit of structure will go a long way!
3. Train For Elevation. For the majority of hikers, the elevation is the toughest part of the trail. Those pesky hills can get your legs burning, get you huffing and puffing and make things a serious struggle!
4. Look After Your Body. One common mistake the majority of hikers make is simply not looking after their body! Hiking and training take its toll. Many hikers I talk to are constantly battling with little niggles and pain.
5. Test Your Gear. You have probably heard this many times before. But it bears repeating. Absolutely anything you are planning on using while you are hiking, you should be testing in your training!

1. Cross climber. This variation on the mountain climber works the chest, shoulders, triceps, and core. It’s also a good warm-up move before getting into strength-training exercises.
2. Warrior push-up. This exercise combines a standard push-up with an upper-body twist. Assume a push-up position: feet together, hands in line with and slightly wider than your shoulders, core engaged, body straight from head to heels.
3. Lateral band walk. This move is a great glute activator. For hikers, that’s essential; glutes protect the knees, especially on descent. Loop a resistance band around your legs just above both knees, and stand with your feet together.
4. Dumbbell squat. If you haven’t done many squats before, start off by performing bodyweight squats. Stand with your feet hip- to shoulder-width apart, holding a pair of dumbbells by your sides at arm’s length, palms facing each other.
5. Single-leg deadlift. To make this move more challenging, hold a single dumbbell in the hand opposite your planted leg. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a pair of dumbbells in front of your thighs, palms facing back.
6. Mutant makers. This exercise is a combination of two movements: the squat clean and the overhead press. It can help improve shoulder and core strength, and build endurance in the hip flexors.
7. Plyo split lunge. Also called Mary Katherines, this jumping, alternating lunge is great for torching your quads and working your hamstrings and calves. Do them quickly to really stoke your cardiovascular system and build trail endurance.

1. Squats. Squats are a great whole body, holistic, simple and straightforward training for hiking exercise. The only thing you need to be able to do a squat is your own body weight for resistance!
2. Planks. Planks are perhaps the simplest, least complicated exercise to complete. Planks are a great way to strengthen your core, and a strong core affects your entire body system.
3. Step Ups. Step ups do require a prop, but it is a simple one that anyone should be able to obtain or improvise. There are specifically designed box step up benches available for purchase, like this adjustable one that can be bought on Amazon, or you can improvise with a crate, or a small stepstool or bench.
4. Lunges. Lunges are another great way to target your legs and lower body, as well as your abdominals and back muscles. They improve balance and stability as well, by targeting each leg individually.
5. Take the Stairs. So this requires a little more prep, but it still should be something that is free and available to anyone, you may just have to get creative!
