    Hey everyone, Ive just found the Uphill Athlete community while searching for training plans for western big-game hunting.

    Can someone offer any direction on what type of plan I should be looking at with Uphill Athlete info? (mountaineering, mountain running, tactical, etc.) just don’t really know where to start. I’m trying to train for week-ish long trips while carrying around a 50-60 lb pack in steep terrain but not so high elevation or so much technical climbing. Any thoughts?

    Welcome to Uphill Athlete.

    The mountaineering training plans will help you build the aerobic and strength required for your big-game hunting trip. You can see all the plans under Training Plans tab on the website.

    If you are interested in reading about the training approach, check out this article –

    Hope this is helpful. Wish you the best!
