Preparing For High Altitude - Kilimanjaro Trekking

HOW FIT DO YOU NEED TO BE?

REALLY , THE QUESTION SHOULD BE,

WHAT TYPE OF FITNESS DO I NEED?

The type of fitness is more important than the degree of fitness

Jogging can increase your fitness levels and help you build a stronger immune system. It’s important to choose the right type of joggling for Kilimanjaro climbing because not all exercises work well at high altitude, but if done correctly this will be beneficial!

To get in top physical shape for the climb, you should do some strength training. The main exercise is designed to increase leg muscle and torso endurance by employing weights or resistance bands while also working out other parts of your body like cores And arms with push ups / pull ups against walls

The best way is through exercises that require balance such as squats (to improve stability), planks, yoga & jumping jacks. Tray and walk longer on uneven terrain, incline  and regular hikes at least twice a week for the last two month prior to the trip.

POLE POLE!

Pole Pole: is the famous word in Kilimanjaro mountains, ‘ which means “slow and steady”  . It’s not about speed but rather durability. You will need to take your time and stay calm and follow the guide’s pace if you want any chance of success on this climb!
