TRAINING PROGRAM

A COMBINATION OF CARDIOVASCULAR, STRENGTHENING AND ENDURANCE TRAINING TO HELP PREPARE YOU FOR THE TEAM CHALLENGE

We are extremely grateful for the support of our training partner Revolution Personal Training.

The team at Revolution PT are dedicated to giving you as many options as you need to make exercise and healthy living a part of your life.

To help everyone stay active through lockdown, they are offering virtual livestream classes and 1-on-1 PT sessions.

Their amazing trainers are developing a program for GAH participants that includes both a walking program and strengthening exercises to condition your body for any distance.

TRAINING PROGRAM

The training program will be structured into cycles that each comprise of a six week training block. The first two cycles will comprise of 4 sessions per week, with a combination of strength, mobility and cardio. This provides variety within the program, while using different energy systems.

Cardio sessions will increase fitness levels required to walk long distances.

Strength and mobility sessions are essential for two reasons:

  1. Building general strength and stability of joints reduces the risk of injury.
  2. Strength will give you a greater chance of being able to complete your chosen distance. You can be fit enough to walk the entire course, but aching/painful joints and muscles can make it difficult to continue.

We recommend aiming to complete at least two sessions per week with a team mate and completing the long weekend walking sessions as a whole team (where possible due to restrictions).

TRAINING APP

Thanks to the amazing team at Revolution Personal Training, all participants will have FREE access to their training program via the Train Heroic app (available on iphone and android). The app will include how to videos for every activity so that you are guided every step of the way.
