    This book is really good to start mountain training planning but I wouldn't follow the recommendations for exercises that are not mountain specific really good explanation of what the body goes through while climbinghikingexercising really good explanation of the muscles involved in different exercises and how to correctly train them good training program outline good mountain specific exercise recommendations that can be done at homegymflat meh recommendations for gym exercises Some of the recommended exercises are not recommended in gyms because they can cause injuries and are not good iatefficiently stimulating muscles Overall there are better exercises than the ones given in the book just ask PTs at the gym they should have a better understanding of how you should train for whatever your goals may be meh recommendations for running exercises The running community has a much deeper understanding of how to correctly train for running and those are better than the basics recommended in the book nutrition was basic was expecting much detailed information about nutrition while training and nutrition at altitude The book has a lot of sample size of 1 recommendations which is usually not what you should follow no stretching The book mentions flexibility as being important several times but doesn't cover that area at all Especially given that flexibility is important while rockicealpine climbing I find this is to be a big gap in the book dealing with altitude the sample size is small but the recommendations I found to be sound based on my limited experience decent recommendations of how to toughen the mental aspect of climbing This is highly subjective and mostly non scientific but I think this subject is so vast that it could've been it's own book

    Best book on sports training that I've ever read ahem the only book on sports training that I've managed to finish I've tried to read other sports training books and I've never completed one That's because the books while great books were aimed at coaches and trainers never at me the person being trained I've read the book and have reread some chapters than once The information has been enlightening If you want an easily digestible explanation of performance centered physical training this is a good book This is not a book full of training recipes There are example routines and logs presented in the book but these are meant as guides After reading the book you'll be able to create your own training programsAlthough the book is focused on alpine climbing the basic sports training information it contains is applicable to any sport The book is about training to climb mountains in an alpine environment so there's a ton of climbing related information in the book Most of the climbing anecdotes are side barred and highlighted though so if you have no interest in them you can skip them

    Reading Jon Krakauer's superb memoir Into Thin Air A Personal Account of the Mount Everest Disaster has left me with a lot of uestions so I started looking for a book that would help me get to the bottom of high altitude climbing I hit the jackpot with Training for the New Alpinism Steve House and Scott Johnston start with the fundamentals of training eating and exercising and then show how to translate that knowledge into a proper methodology for getting your body and mind ready to hit 5000 meter peaks Even if you are not planning to climb Denali or Annapurna anytime soon I strongly recommend this book for the amount of valuable advice it has on building your strength training routine and devising the right nutrition and regimen to go along with that For example Steve and Scott's advice on increasing the number of pull ups you can do is brilliant and immediately actionable And their stories on the challenges of maintaining proper calorie intake at the high altitude eye opening and downright scary But of course there is The book is choke full of gorgeous climbing pictures and personal stories of celebrity climbers And you know reading about how all these people caught their mountain bug; the type of gruelling training they have to put up with for a chance of spending a few weeks in the mountains; learning about the tough situations they face when exposed to the elements and how much ingenuity goes in surviving these all of that puts the daily grind we regular mortals spending their lives at the sea level in a perspective I felt inspired to reach for and challenge myself to do the things I would never dream of before And for that I thank you Steve and Scott

    This is a thorough and consummately well researched manual for ostensibly the alpine athleteWhile not the primary audience for the book there is also much in here for other endurance mountain athletes Trail runners skimo athletes and cross country skiers can all benefitI submitted this book to my local library as a purchase suggestion and was delighted to see it approved I hope others find it of as much interest as ISince the acuisition of this book the authors have teamed up with Kilian Jornet to write a book specifically for Uphill Athletes geared for the runnersskiers So I hope the new tome can sometime soon join its mountaineering euivalent

    As a strength athlete it was very interesting to read how the training is done for an endurance based sportThe section on adaptions for altitude was particularly interesting as it's something I've never read about before The biggest takeaway I got from the book is the commonsense thought that when going into the mountains speed is safety This doesn't mean rushing Rather it means having the fitness to move continually at an optional speed This is shown in most of the personal accounts in the book

    Reuired reading for aspiring alpinistsPhenomenal book The structure is great and there’s a lot of helpful information in here I’ve been a long distance runner for most of my life and this book really helped me transition from purely road work into mountaineeringalpinism Like any book there’s only so much information an author can put into the pages of one volume If you’re really interested in this stuff go read the other titles mentioned There’s a ton of great stuff in this space
