Hiking Exercises for Flexibility, Strength, and Balance

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to take a hike! When you hit the trails, you want to be fully prepared for the season.

Exercises are divided into three categories: Flexibility, Strength, and Balance. Note that once the season has started and you find yourself in better shape and out on the trails more frequently, the flexibility exercises in particular are of value to loosen up stiff muscles. This not only refers to immediately prior or post-hike, but also throughout the week as a way to counteract the tendency for muscles tightening during the regular activity of hiking.
