Hill Training

Hill Training is a great way to build strength, endurance, flexibility and speed. Wherever you live, if you can find a hill anywhere from 50 meters to 400 meters, with a slight incline, you can take part in hill training. There are several explanations of the benefits of hill training and how to develop a program. Generally, they all agree to the benefits and have similar ways to conduct a hill training session. Listed are a few that you can benefit from. The Lydiard hill training program is the most detailed (it has pictures!) and has been proven to be effective over the last 50 years.
