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:
Bridge with Hamstring Curl—3:27
Squat Curl Overhead Press—4:10
Side Plank with Leg Raise—5:35
