Leg-strengthening moves for a Kilimanjaro climb

Climb Kilimanjaro with Rachel! Post 2: Training in the Gym

July 10, 2012

Instead of doing this on a Stairmaster, I prefer 8-10 minute sets on a single flight of stairs because it not only forces me to focus and puts me into the zone but it also gives me the opportunity to train for the descent… don’t forget, you have to walk down several thousand feet from the summit! Follow Rachel’s journey as she trains for her Kilimanjaro climb with Thomson Safaris via the Western Approach Route in August.
