The Guides Choice program was developed to provide hunting guides with a preparatory program to recommend to clients to complete prior to a hunt. It’s also designed for hunters who have limited time to prepare for an upcoming hunt and need a program that will prepare them for the demands of backcountry hunting especially those requiring a lot of steep and deep climbs and descents. The program requires minimal equipment and gives athletes 5 days of workouts over 4 weeks of training. The first 4 workouts of each week are designed to challenge your strength and work capacity while helping you move more efficiently while pursuing your quarry. This program can be used throughout the hunting season to help you to maintain strength and durability while preventing overuse injuries to the knees, hips and back from all of the miles you are putting into the chase.
