Because Spiti is a high-altitude, cold desert, you must have a baseline level of physical fitness. Basic workout sessions can help you acquire.

The Spiti Biking Expedition goes up to 15,000 feet, so you’ll need to have very strong lungs. In such high-altitude weather, your body also needs to stay active. Begin by jogging 4-5 times each week. 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 lifetime. 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.
