Brahmatal trek is regarded as a moderate trek. The trail ascends to a height of over 12,250 feet. There is a constant altitude climb, from Sankri (6,800ft) to 12,500ft, which necessitates the use of very powerful lungs. The Kedarkantha trek necessitates a high level of cardiovascular fitness. And you might be wondering how to strengthen your lungs. To begin, go for a jog every day. Begin jogging slowly and gradually increase your speed. As a result, cardiovascular endurance exercises are highly vital for making your lungs stronger than before.

The Workouts

    • Walking with a 10kg rucksack strapped on your back is a terrific way to shape your legs and body. It aids in the burning of calories, the reduction of excess weight, and the strengthening of your body.
    • For high ascents, stair climbing is the finest workout. Include it in your training routine.
    • Jogging can help you live longer by strengthening your lungs and improving your life. It’s a high-intensity aerobic activity that necessitates a lot of oxygen. This is an excellent activity for preventing weight and maintaining good health.
    • Squats are the most effective functional exercise for improving balance. Legs, thighs, hips, and hamstrings are also strengthened.
    • Pull-ups, push-ups, sprints, mountain climber, burpee, jumping jacks, and 60-second plank (3-5 sets each).
    • Pushing your body upstairs after stair climbing is another fantastic cardiovascular exercise. This is often considered to be the most effective workout for improving strength and power. Carrying an 18kg pack also helps a lot.
    • Finally, remember to pamper your body with some breathing exercises, Yoga, and Meditation.
    • For the best outcomes, eat well, stay hydrated, and get enough of rest.

    Remember to bring appropriate clothing, remain hydrated, and stay warm to properly acclimate.
