Hiking Dynamic Warm-Up

Hiking Dynamic Warm-Up

Prepare to conquer the trails with our hiking warm-up video, designed to optimize your performance, decrease injury risk and enhance your hiking experience. This dynamic warm-up routine with Josh Toohill will get your body primed and ready for adventure.

In addition to a dynamic warm-up, here are some other factors to consider incorporating as you climb over 1500m of elevation in support of Power to Be.

Hydration: Drink plenty of fluids to replenish fluids lost during your hike. Consider electrolyte-rich beverages or add some extra salt to your meals to restore minerals and prevent cramping.

Refuel with Nutrient-Rich Foods: Treat your body to a nutritious meal packed with protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates.

Elevate & Rest: Elevate your legs to reduce swelling and improve circulation. Find a comfortable spot to lie down and elevate your legs using a pillow or rolled-up blanket. Take this time to rest and allow your body to recover fully.

Hydrotherapy & Compression: If you’re experiencing soreness or inflammation, water immersion can help. You can add epsom salt to your bath to decrease muscle soreness. Consider using compression socks or sleeves to promote blood flow and reduce swelling in your feet and calves.

Massage & Self-Care: Treat yourself to a massage or self-massage using a foam roller or lacrosse ball. 

Mindful Relaxation: Dedicate some time to relaxation and mindfulness. Practice deep breathing exercises, meditation, or simply enjoy the tranquility of nature to calm your mind and reduce stress.

Quality Sleep: Prioritize a good night’s sleep to support muscle recovery and overall well-being. Create a comfortable sleep environment, avoid electronic devices before bedtime, and aim for 7-9 hours of uninterrupted sleep.

By incorporating these recovery strategies into your post-hike routine, you’ll optimize your body’s ability to recover and prepare for future adventures on the trails.
