If I recall correctly, I believe 1 to 2 long hikes/aerobic workouts per week can help with such maintenance. Of course “long” is going to be relative to the volume you’ve been doing thus far.
I have just spent the entire spring and summer working as a ranger doing purely aerobic work all day long, 4 or so times a week. Due to the remote area and limited climbing opportunities, my technical skills and strength have diminished as a result. I am looking to bring those back up to par. My question is this – How should I quantify/calculate the amount of aerobic work needed to maintain what I have gained this summer but allow for me to focus on other attributes?
