Training for the Uphill Athlete
A Manual for Mountain Runners & Ski Mountaineers
Building on the success of Training for the New Alpinism, Training for the Uphill Athlete translates theory into methodology to allow you to write your own training plans and coach yourself to your endurance goals.
Steve House, one of the world's best mountaineers, and his coach Scott Johnston, an Olympic-level cross-country ski coach, along with Kilian Jornet, arguably the best endurance athlete at this time, present training principles for the multisport mountain athlete who regularly participates in a mix of distance running, ski mountaineering, and other sports that require optimum fitness and customised strength.
The book includes the same mix of theory, application, and experiential essays, as well as instructional illustrations as in Training for the New Alpinism.
Trail running, ski mountaineering, and ultrarunning are becoming increasingly popular all over the world, and are often undertaken by the same person during a single year. This book collects the scientifically backed and athlete-tested wisdom and experience of three of the best uphill athletes and educates outdoor athletes of all stripes to develop plans to perform their best.
