Gym Prep: Lots-o Stairs

In addition to the regular hikes, a lot of time is spent in the gym to prepare for the upcoming trek. One of my favorite exercises, and I believe most effective, is the stair climber. It’s a great workout to strengthen the large leg muscles and it definitely gives me an edge when climbing during our weekend hikes.

The equivalent of climbing 3 1/2 Empire State Buildings
