I have never been a Gym type person, preferring to exercise outdoors. The idea of the huge Arnold Schwarzenegger type people grunting in a corner has kept me away.
I tend to train at home or outdoors taking part in sports. All counts as training and keeps me in shape for my next expedition or adventure.
I cycle and run 3/4 for times a week, sometimes I have the odd game of football (mainly run around chasing the ball). This all acts as good cardio, which most of my trips need and you can’t beat a hill day to also get you trained up.
I do a bit of weight training, due the amount of kit and gear I have to shift around doing the logistics or just general long distance treks. For this I train my legs using Squats, lunges and calf raises. All body weight, sometimes with my rucksack filled up to 25kg.
I also do a lot of body weight work, press ups, dips, pull ups and burpees.
My core work out all depends how I feel, bicycle kicks, sit up cross overs and Russian twist make up most of my routine.
At home/in the U.K I tend to eat a lot bean and pea protein, I have a lot of eggs too thanks to my garden chickens. The rest of my food is mostly veg and fruit with nuts as snacks.
I avoid all crap, processed food and fast food. Sometimes treating myself to a good pub feast.
I hope this has been helpful, if you need any advice just ask
