Fitness Preparation:

Here’s a guide to help you get fit for the trek in 4 weeks.
Cardiovascular endurance
In case you’re just starting with a fitness routine, start slow and increase your pace everyday in the following manner –
Target completing a brisk walk of 5 km in 45 minutes when you begin
Gradually increase your pace by walking 5 km, 4 times a week.
As you become more comfortable, introduce jogging in your routine.
Progressively increase the distance you jog in a workout until you can complete 5 km in 35 mins.
If you prefer cycling over running, target covering 15 km in 60 minutes when you begin.
Progressively increase your pace to cover 20 km in one hour.

Strength training:
This is an important area you need to work on.
Strength training is equally important to trek comfortably. Work on your glutes, calves and knees. Additionally, work on strengthening your core.
You must strengthen your core muscles. For strengthening your core muscles, holding a plank and it’s variations (elbow, side planks) are the best exercises to go about doing it.
Also try these exercises for strength-
Target 5 sets of squats with 20 in each set
– Squats (Mix it up with sumo squats)
– Lunges (Forward, backward and lateral lunges)
– 2 minute Plank

Flexibility determines the amount of movement your bones can make in any direction around joints such as shoulders, elbows, hips and knees.
It is an aspect that will help you trek comfortably. Carrying a backpack, however light, can become a strain. Stretching your hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors and lower back muscles regularly, promotes relaxation in the tissues reducing the strain on your back.
If you can’t go out and jog because of time and space constraints, here’s a video you can use to work out indoors.
