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

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).

Milford Track: Alpine Tramping (Hiking) Series | New Zealand

Over the course of four days the Milford Track takes you 53.5km right through the heart of Fiordland. The track itself is well developed due to its ‘Great Walk’ status. However, day three of your walk can be very challenging as it involves a long steep climb up and over Mackinnon Pass. This brings you into an alpine environment, so there’s a few things you need to know to stay safe on your journey. This video explores the alpine section to help you prepare for the harsher conditions, particularly in exposed areas.

We are a couple who once fell in love with mountains and couldn't get back. So we decided to follow our heart and move from a big city to a small village to be able to do what we love and to create this content. Our goal is to promote the healthy lifestyle, to motivate people to travel more and care for nature around. We are passionate walkers who love hiking, trekking and camping. We offer the detailed information of our hikes and routes, including the map and all the directions, so that you can repeat it if you'd like to.

We choose walking over driving and other types of transportation whenever we can because we learnt that this way we see so much more and can explore and feel the place better. Walking is an excellent activity that has so many benefits to your health and requires no special equipment or practice, so we encourage you to get the most out of it and get out walking.

We speak English, Spanish, French and Russian, so don't hesitate to address to us in your native language.

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!
