Description
 
In Training for the New Alpinism, Steve House, world-class
climber and Patagonia ambassador, and Scott Johnston, coach of U.S.
National Champions and World Cup Nordic Skiers, translate training
theory into practice to allow you to coach yourself to any
mountaineering goal. Applying training practices from other endurance
sports, House and Johnston demonstrate that following a carefully
designed regimen is as effective for alpinism as it is for any other
endurance sport and leads to better performance. They deliver detailed
instruction on how to plan and execute training tailored to your
individual circumstances. Whether you work as a banker or a mountain
guide, live in the city or the country, are an ice climber, a
mountaineer heading to Denali, or a veteran of 8,000-meter peaks, your
understanding of how to achieve your goals grows exponentially as you
work with this book. Chapters cover endurance and strength training
theory and methodology, application and planning, nutrition, altitude,
mental fitness, and assessing your goals and your strengths. Chapters
are augmented with inspiring essays by world-renowned climbers,
including Ueli Steck, Mark Twight, Peter Habeler, Voytek Kurtyka, and
Will Gadd. Filled with photos, graphs, and illustrations.
