Training

  • Training for a New Alpinism: Steve House and his trainer, Scott Johnston, wrote this book specifically to address training for climbing as an athlete. It provides direction for an athlete looking to take their climbing to the next level with smart training practices. The book includes information on stacking training – strength and endurance, recovery, goal-setting, mental fitness, nutrition, and altitude adaptation.
  • Mountain Athlete: Great website that offers varied and seasonal programming for various types of mountain sports. They have a great FREE video library of several training movements that play a key role in their programming. They also offer very reasonably priced programming based on specific objectives. Their Big Mountain Training Program is the most applicable training program for expedition-style climbing like Denali.
  • Gym Jones: We all know Mark Twight understands the art of suffering in the alpine, so how could his gym and programming not be an amazing resource? Gym Jones offers tiered memberships ($), which includes programming, knowledge base articles, videos and a Q&A section.
