This is an authoritative but accessible training manual for athletes and coaches who feel most alive in the mountains or pushing the uphill ascent. Distance running, ski mountaineering, skimo, and skyrunning are becoming increasingly popular all over the world, and are often undertaken by the same person during a single year. This book collects the scientifically backed and athlete-tested wisdom and experience of three of the best uphill athletes and coaches and extrapolates both to educate outdoor athletes of all stripes to perform their best.The book includes the same mix of theory, application, and experiential essays from experts in the field, as well as instructional illustrations as inTraining for the New Alpinism. Contributions by Kilian Jornet increase the worldwide appeal of the book.
