This is how I see it: training is training for training, it never ends. Every big climb or expedition, ends up being training for the next one ahead and so on, it’s a beautiful cycle of life. There is nothing more important than training if you have big goals in the wild or of any kind that require both mental and physical strength, or even more-so, discipline.
Its simple, if you don’t train (in oh so many different ways) these huge goals will not come to fruition, even the attempts will be rough. Some of the main keys are consistency, progress and discipline. That does not simply mean work out and eat well and think positively. Technique and acquired talent through practice is another important part of the equation.
As an athlete I don’t diet and exercise, I eat and train. Big difference. Get into a rhythm of ‘eating and training’ which means being active at least a couple hours a day. And note, I am 43 years old, and have never felt stronger and more psyched to crush it on wild goals.
There are many highly effective ways to train of course, but here are some that have been a wonderful part of my routine and quite productive over many years… And, there is no excuse, you can do these at your local gym, at home, and most in your spare time if your schedule is uncontrollable mayhem like mine.
