    Hey Hafjell,

    Sorry for the confusion, I did not do the whole plan, but only that exercise in the plan. My goal was to have this workout help build my base for the spring ski season, so I started “building base” in November. I have combined this workout at the beginning of the week with probably 3 days of skiing during the week + an average of 1 hour/day of base aerobic work. I was hoping to build more power from the listed workout and I definitely think it has. I split my time 50/50 on skiing big skis and skiing ski-mo skis.

    Hafjell, if you’re trying to ski some big lines this spring, I definitely suggest it! I also think it will transition well to a good mountain running base for my summer.

    Scott Semple, thanks! I need to transition to unguided squats and will start one legged work soon.

    Hey Scott,

    Thanks for the quick reply and that definitely makes sense. The work out I was referring to uses a high amount of weight with half squats and linked below (75% 1RM-95% 1RM). I am currently focused on “increasing your strength without adding muscle mass” as the article explains. I have been doing these once a week and I have seen noticeable improvement in my skiing. Sounds like I should try to make the transition to free squats and find a spotter.

    Thanks for the input Scott! Our local bouldering gym has a moon board but I didn’t realize you can build them yourself. I will look more into that and see if we can make that happen.

    Thanks for the advice!

    Scott,

    Thanks for the clarifications and I have found some good recipes. I will adjust my training schedule accordingly and try to limit some of the carbs.

    Thank you for the help!

    Appreciate all the conversation and information on this!

    Andy, thanks for the information! This does sound pretty logical but it would be tough for me to not run more than 30 miles a week. I’m hoping to have a successful summer but will get back to you with outcomes from post summer training.

    Steve, I’m 25 and will let you know how the summer goes 😉

    Hey Folks,

    I wanted to add some questions to this thread. I always seem to have stomach issues during races (i.e. puking) and it has severely effected my performance. I am hoping that becoming more fat adapted will allow me to take in less calories during races and hopefully not get sick? After becoming more fat adapted, do you see less of a need for caloric intake during races?

    Also, do you have any meal recommendations or websites to go to for more recipes? I have used some of the meals listed in Training for the New Alpinism but need more options.

    Thanks!

    Hey Scott,

    I’m more talking about 1-4 pitch sport/trad routes. I climb some in the gym during the week but have a hard time really pushing past 5.10. Is this just something I’ll have to keep as a hobby on easy stuff or do you see a way to progress without sacrificing endurance? Should I concentrate on specific finger strength workout to get more bang for my buck? I really enjoy climbing but find it frustrating to not see much progress.

    Thanks!
