Train Today for
Tomorrow's Challenges

Services > Rainier Video

Review in the National Strength & Conditioning Association Bulletin July/August 2002 Volume 23.4, p. 8

Train to Climb Mt. Rainier
... and Other High Peaks

Train to Climb Mt. Rainier is a video by NSCA members Doug and Courtenay Schurman. Both are CSCS certified and have been members since 1998.

Although the video is titled Train to Climb Mt. Rainier, a lot of the information provided can be applied to other mountaineering and trekking adventures.

The videotape is divided into six segments, each pertaining to different training components. The tape begins with indoor aerobic training, discussing several different modes that can be used, providing the viewer with many options. Also discussed is the relative intensity of each of the modes. This is followed by the stretching section, which demonstrates stretches that can be performed both in the gym, and outdoors. The stretching section also does a very thorough job at listing flexibility guidelines.

The following sections include strength training, which divides the exercises into upper body and lower body exercises. This section also demonstrates how the exercises can be performed without using traditional weight equipment such as dumbbells and barbells.

The final sections of the video cover climbing specific training, anaerobic training methods, and recovery guidelines. The video concludes with a sample month-by-month periodized program.

National Strength & Conditioning Association Mission: As the worldwide authority on strength and conditioning, we support and disseminate research-based knowledge and its practical application, to improve athletic performance and fitness.
