How to Train for Hiking || REI

If you're just getting into hiking or you aspire to do longer hikes to loftier places, then doing some preseason training can be a big help. The eight exercises Dr. Sam shows in this workout plan are designed to target areas that power you up the trail mile after mile: They increase strength in your core and major leg muscles, and help build endurance in those same muscle groups.

In this video, we’ll show you the following exercises:
Hip Roll—0:43
Jump Squats—1:27
Step Up—2:01
Heel Down—2:37
Bridge with Hamstring Curl—3:27
Squat Curl Overhead Press—4:10
Hip Clock—4:49
Side Plank with Leg Raise—5:35

Tom and Lance's Adventures:

Fly Fishing & Hiking Adventure in The Blue Ridge Mountain Forest

As we come to the end of 2016, I am traveling to the Blue Ridge Mountains of New York to go on a fly fishing adventure for the steelhead trout. I have never caught this fish before, and my previous fishing trip for this elusive trout didn't work out. These blue ridge mountains get their name from the constant mist that fills the air above the rivers and streams that run through the forest. With waders and boots, we went hiking through the forest that was filled with wildlife like deer and birds. The temperate climate allowed for beautiful green mosses and ferns to grow amongst the colorful falling leaves from the many species of trees leading up to the river. When we finally reached the river, it was full of round rocks that tumbled the clear water through creek bends and waterfalls. Fishing down the river, we eventually ended up next to a rocky cliff where the river had carved out a nice pool where the trout could live. Crossing the river in spots felt dangerous with the cold water and all the heavy camera equipment I was carrying. Fly fishing with small eggs and zonkers, we hooked up on only a few steelhead trout that broke the light fishing line that we were using for the clear water. Exhausted, cold, and out of flies to fish with, we made our way back up the mountain where I ran into a fellow fishing freak that was a fan of the my fishing videos. It lifted my spirits back up and gave me the confidence to post this fishing video, even though I didn't catch anything for the second time. Learning how to master fly fishing is a fishing challenge in itself, but add in the smart fish like the trout and cold climate and it becomes an extreme fishing challenge for a Texan like me. It was still an amazing day and fishing adventure with some of the most beautiful displays or nature and wildlife I have ever scene. Hiking through the forest alone was worth the trip.

Evan’s Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike: Full Documentary

First of all, PLEASE subscribe to my channel. 90% of the people who watch this video aren’t subscribers, and are therefore missing out on my newest and latest videos about backpacking. Just go to my channel, “Evan’s Backpacking Videos,” hit the subscribe button, and turn on the bell notification to be notified about all my new videos. Thanks!

Now, about THIS video—

On April 21, 2018, I set out on a thru-hike of the 2,189 mile Appalachian Trail. This video is a full-length documentary of my thru-hike from start to finish. It's drawn from my 41 other videos about my thru-hike. My reflections on my thru-hike can be found not here on YouTube, but on Instagram at my account @Backpacker_Comics. Follow me there!

Making appearances in this video: Liz Kidder, Luke Gaudreau, Lydia Schaeffer, Janet Hensley (Ms. Janet), Odie Norman, and many thru-hikers from the Class of 2018, including Yelp, P-1, Peach, Smoky, Denny, Griz, EZ, Shield Maiden, Trailblazer, Big Tuna, Miss Roberts, Poppins, Peanut, Ginger Balls, Mountain Goat, Buckles, ToolTime, Happy Feet, Bob Gnarley, Stumbles, Outlaw the ridgerunner.

Thanks also to the many hikers who agreed to appear in my other AT videos but who couldn't be included in this video because of space, including Joyful Rambler, GrizzleGear, and Hiking the Appalachian Trail with Wheezie & Duck.

Some YouTube channels make appearances too: Hike & Tell, IBTAT, Hike Hunter, Loner2012AT, and (in the Harpers Ferry Section), Scoutmaster, Jake Hikes, Amanda Bess, Sleeves, BateBolt Productions (Pit Boss and Play by Play), Bruce Matson, and Fight for Together (the Crawfords).

If you want to support the Appalachian Trail, you can become a member of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. (I did!) You can also support the trail by contributing to 2018 thru-hiker's Bruce Matson's RTK Challenge, in which donations are matched by Bruce up to $100,000. (I did this too!) Details here:

The trail lore I talk about in these videos is derived from my reading about the AT. A full bibliography is given in the description to the first video in this series (AT #1).

Hiking the UK's Oldest & Most Challenging National Trail: The Pennine Way

I rarely know what to expect when I set off on an adventure and my trip to the Peak District and Derbyshire in the United Kingdom was no different. I must admit, I may have held a slight prejudice in thinking that UK wouldn't quite compare to the exotic beauty of other locations, but man was I wrong. I was constantly surprised at the amount of natural beauty and stunning views to be found along the Pennine Way, Britain’s oldest and most challenging National Trail. Setting off from the Old Nags Head in Edale, and every step along the 268-mile long trail to Scotland, the trail had plenty of adventure.

There are so many charms to the Pennine Way, it was a pleasure to hike. The day that stands out to me the most was the day we hiked from Low Force Falls all the way to High Cup Nick. This 17-mile day had plenty of beauty, capped off by one of the most stunning campsites I've had the pleasure of camping at. The views there will stick with me for a long time.

Getting to climb on world-class grit stone was quite the experience. I can see why so many climbers migrate to the Peak District. Friendly locals, great local fare, caving at Alum Pot, and the opportunity to climb at Stanage was fantastic—Peak District & Derbyshire offers so much more than just great hiking and I hope you enjoy this episode of Trackin’ Dirt as much as I enjoyed my time in England!

Hiking Sulphur Mountain East Trail, Banff National Park

One of the few summit hikes in Banff National Park that is open most of the year for hiking. I tackled this trail in early May so there is still some snow in shaded areas and at higher elevation. The east trail starts at the upper hot springs parking lot. The trail constantly gains elevation through a series of switch backs though a forested trail. The end is a beautiful view and a facility with restaurants, information displays, gift shop and viewing area. Follow me as I take you up the trail, show you around the facility and visit the peak.
For members of your group or family who do not want to hike the trail the gondola departs just below the trail head parking lot. Give yourself 3-4 hour head start!.
