I was wondering what the differences in the max strength/muscular endurance portion of the programs for the mountain running vs mountaineering programs as obviously the strength aspect(carrying a heavy pack) is different?
Hi Scott…a more general question of how the mountaineering and ultra plans differ in how they approach max strength/muscular endurance programs.For example mountaineering programs involve climbing with heavily weighted packs.
I still do not know what you are asking. Again, I must ask; are you speaking in general or are you referring to the training plans we sell? You are right that the mountaineering plans we sell and the principles in the book involve carrying a weight up hill. Mountain running is different but can still benefit from max strength and weighted ME.
