Topic - Training for mountaineering

Avinash1 - on 31 Aug 2012
Sorry if this has been discussed before

Just back from my first trip to the Karakoram and I need to get stronger and fitter.

Usually, my fitness regime is cycling, occasional runs, and hiking with a full pack on and swimming. As well as visits to indoor climbing gym.

But my friends were stronger and faster.

Any tips on training? I.e what weights to lift? or is it the case of just more hiking with a pack on? And going harder than ever?

Cheers

Avi
