Top 3 Tips for Conquering Everest

By TMHQ | 2 March, 2018

 

So you've been in the gym five times a week, you've built your upper body strength and improved your explosiveness. You're ready to tackle Everest.

But being strong isn't everything in the face of such an intense challenge, you'll need bravery, brains and a few hands waiting to pull you to the summit.

 

THE MADE TO MOVE AMBASSADOR'S TOP 3 TIPS FOR CONQUERING EVEREST

 

It's one of the most common question asked of our Lucozade Sport Made to Move Ambassadors - "how do I get up Everest?" It isn't easy, and it can't be done alone but these three tips might just help you get there.

 

1. PUMP YOUR ARMS

 

You're going to need to build momentum, so start from as far back as possible and pump your arms and legs to really help you explode up the face of Everest.

 

2. AIM FOR THE HANDS

 

Keep your eyes on the prize. The prize being other Mudders hands of course. When you jump you're going to want to reach out and grab them, so make sure you know where you're grabbing.

 

3. DON'T JUMP TOO EARLY

 

Almost everyone who fails on Everest makes this easy mistake. You need to jump at the very last possible minute, go any earlier and you'll be sliding back down.
