Re: [AT-L] Cross Training/weight training



I strongly believe that keeping in shape can protect the hiker from injury.
 Your muscles support the bones and not vice versa.  I'm not one of the
younger hikers and exercise can maintain my bone density and prevent breaks.
 I did cross country running and weight training before I did the AT and I
know it made my trip much easier.   Gail
