Publisher's Summary

Dovetailing on the success of Training for the New Alpinism and Patagonia's own emphasis on all mountain use, Training for the Uphill Athlete translates theory into methodology to allow you to write your own training plans and coach yourself to endurance goals.  

Steve House, one of the best mountaineers, and his coach Scott Johnston, an Olympic-level cross country ski coach, along with Kilian Jornet, hands down best endurance athlete at this time, present training principles for the multisport mountain athlete who regularly participates in a mix of distance running, ski mountaineering, and other endurance sports that require optimum fitness and customized strength.  

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.

Not adapted for Audio

The last 20% of the book is exercises and Training tables which are not adapted for the audio version. I feel like getting the paper book is worth it this time. No attached pdf available.

Missing a PDF to reference

Great book filled with valuable information on training. Be prepared to stop, rewind, and take notes. When the book is referenced you have nothing to look at as there is no pdf included for these items. The book would be a better long term investment.

Too technical for audiobook format

This book is awesome but it needs an extensive pdf. There are many sections you’ll possibly want to reference so I’m returning the audiobook and buying the print.

Wonderful!

This manual is more like a story that informs the reader/listener of what is needed to live a life filled with performance and health.
