What is the 12-Week Trailblazer Workout Plan?
In order to have a successful hike you need to have a strong back, strong arms, and strong shoulders to steady heavy packs and to help lift yourself up over boulders, strong and powerful legs to be able to handle the incline of the trail and [literally] put one foot in front of the other, and a strong core for balance and efficiency. You will be building your strength and cardiovascular fitness during each and every workout.
We have developed this plan based on our expertise by not only being a certified personal trainer for over eight years but also knowledge gained by hiking thousands of miles across North America, including Mount Whitney (the highest point in the lower 48), the Presidential Traverse, Half Dome, Angels Landing, and Colorado 14ers, among many others! We do not say this to brag but to show you can do this too (10 years ago, we probably couldn’t have hiked a mile)! We don’t hike (or do cardio) excessively before our hiking trips, we simply train year-round in a manner that is similar to how this plan is laid out.
