"An amazing resource for the backcountry hunter. I've been training with the Ridgeline Athlete Teams for years now and I continue to improve in my strength and conditioning each season. As a mostly solo backcountry hunter my physical preparation is the most important weapon I have."

"The guides told me that many times they don't accept hunters who have been through surgeries like this, especially those at my age (67)...When the hunt was done they told me I was welcome to come hunt with them anytime. Without my training, hunting the way I like to wouldn't be possible anymore, I'd have to just sit in a stand all day."

Build Stronger Feet & Ankles for Backcountry Hunting

One of the biggest mistakes that I see Backcountry athletes make is neglecting training the foot, the ankle, and the shank. These structures are the interface between our body and the ground that we walk, hike, run, and ruck on. So unless you’re walking around on your hands, it’s pretty important that the two things in contact with the ground most are being trained effectively to handle the demands of Backcountry adventure. ✅One of the simplest and also most effective forms of training these structures is walking around in the woods, on the trails, or even in your backyard. The key is that you’re doing it in footwear that will help you build a stronger more responsive and durable foot, ankle and lower leg. Spending too much time in stiff supportive boots is not the ideal training stimulus, as it will effectively lead to weaker connective tissues and supporting musculature. It’s no different than wearing a brace on an injured limb, experiencing atrophy of the supporting muscles and then having to deal with rebuilding the them after you get it off. ✅If you wear those boots all the time when you’re hiking or rucking those connective tissues will adaptively get weaker and less supportive. Find a pair of trail runners or more minimalist hiking boots that are “below the ankle” and have a thinner/softer sole to train in during the months leading up to the season so you can build up a stronger foot and ankle and be more prepared for what’s to come. 🚨Want to train with Ridgeline Athlete?
