    Hi,

    I got a new pair of rollerblades for my birthday. Do you see any benefits in rollerblading for mountaineering and ski touring? I would blade in a hilly terrain with cross country poles.

    Rollerblading could be a fine recovery activity. It could be fairly specific for cross counts skate skiing. As to whether it will help your mountaineering fitness; That depends on how fit you are. The less fit the more benefit you will get from any type of aerobic endurance training. AS you become fitter the transfer of the training effect will diminish.

    Thanks Scott!

    Since I’m a FT-guy with decades of high intensity training, I’m pretty sure I will benefit from blading by now.

    When you could choose between running and blading, you would probably go to running with re to specifity, right?
