5.0 out of 5 stars An impressive distillation of years of experience, 2 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Training for the New Alpinism (Paperback)
The authors have taken on the difficult task of distilling their years of training for alpine climbing as athletes and coaches into one (admittedly quite large) book and have created a piece of work which will be really useful to anyone looking to improve their physical capabilities in the mountains. Although it doesn't cover every aspect of training (there is little on stretching or injuries) there is a wealth of information on endurance and strength training, nutrition, physiology (including the effects of altitude) and mental fitness that should put you well on the way to being a good coach for yourself.

This review is from: Training for the New Alpinism (Paperback)
For me it's a great reading that opens new horizons in understanding and planning your training. And although it says "Training for alpinism", there is a lot of general information one can apply to trainings in general. I think about half or up to two thirds of the book are applicable elsewhere, the rest may be alpinism-specific. Short stories from other climbers about their training also give you some other point of view.
