It’s not a successful climb unless you enjoy the journey.
— Dan Benson
Lighten up. Smile.
Even if you’re carrying a sandbag up a hill, you are in control of your attitude.
Master your emotions and feel the difference.
Hill Repeats w/ Weight
Grab a sandbag and march to a higher elevation. Find a stairwell or a 3-mile technical ascent that averages a 15% incline — it doesn’t matter.
What matters is that you warm-up and cool-down properly. Recovery time between repetitions should be between 50% and 100% of the time it took you to ascend.
Walking uphill with a sandbag or rock or log is fine. Running uphill with additional weight is recommended only for advanced athletes.
