Preparation for the activity Warm up – for tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints

Trailrunning an der Felskueste von Catadrais, Galizien, Spanien.

To avoid injuries, prepare your body for the exertions ahead on your hiking tour. We have a few suggestions for your warm-up: Get your cardi­ovascular system started by jumping in place 4–5×1:00 minute with a 30 second pause, running in place for about 3:00 minutes or doing a few classic jumping jacks.


“If you are planning a tour lasting several days, you should do some condi­tioning work several weeks beforehand. Strengthen your back muscles to ensure that you can carry your rucksack over long distances.”
