    This is a wonderful guide to using your body as a tool to alpine achievements I like the following factors about this book 1 There are beautiful, full page pictures throughout the book which make the book much interesting, and also adds some inspiration Helps you remember why you are reading the book in the first place.2 There is plenty of description It s not just a manual of an argument for an entirely new way of viewing training for mountaineering It s not light on description at all and has been contributed to by some expert mountaineers.3 The actual training bits are very easy to find and to follow has helped me to structure my approach a lot.I think my only very slight irritations are as follow 1 As a scientist myself, I think certain effects are presented as a fact, where the reality is that they have shown some correlation in very small sample studies.2 Perhaps sometimes there is a little too much opinion But that s just my opinion Nothing in there to knock a star off sure to be an invaluable resource to beginners and experienced climbers looking to re calibrate their approach.

    This book, compared to general books I buy is expensive But it is well worth every penny I paid perhaps It is a fantastic resource that contextualises all the information that is out there and provides a concise source of information that is very easy to read, absorb and understand.The book is designed for the mountaineer, but the principles that you learn from it can be applied to any sport or activity I cannot praise this book enough as a source of information.If you are serious mountaineering and are in two minds about whether to buy this then you might as well be in two minds about mountaineering this is an invaluable resource that has helped me over the years.

    Well, it s at least changed my training I thought I knew a lot about fitness it turns out, I know absolutely nothing This book is exceptionally thorough and engaging it s 450 pages and I finished it in one weekend I m now diligently following the recommended training plan I resisted getting this book for a long time, and I really wish I had bought it earlier

    Great book for everybody not just for elite climbers It really makes you understand how the human body works and how it should be trained in order to achieve your goals If you aspire of becoming a good climber mountaineer you must read this

  5. Customer Customer says:

    I think this is one of a kind book that covers multiple aspects of training There s a lot of scientific information explained in practical manner I would re read to go back again on concepts and guidance I do want to look at this book on its own as I build my training plan for a climb and would report back on results later

  6. Customer Customer says:

    Good read and a great reference book Good suggestions on exercise to do for specific muscle groups and training goals Let down a little bit by biased and debatable science in places but on the whole if you are an amateur athlete you can t go too far wrong with this.
