CLIMBING MT. RINJANI.
“Activities of Life” is based on the benefits of physical activity outside of prevention of diseases, including feeling better, having fun, socializing with others, enhance our ability to function in everyday life and gain control over our lives, let us take benefits of sports activities as recreation.
How about stepping tactics during the ascent to Mount Rinjani? Basically walking exercise. Therefore, proper running technique mastery should know beforehand.
Walk to Mount Rinjani, of course not the same as walking on the sidewalk. Mount Rinjani you have to walk with a load on his back, across the valley, climb the cliff, down a slope, or chasing the hills not far from a height of 2000 meters. With a field like that coupled with the burden that must be taken then the balance in walking in the mountains is absolute.
You may also want another pedestrian, you must walk in a fixed rhythm, in other words, not stiff like a robot. No changes as a dancer, walking on the mountain also has its own art. If the dancers have the pleasure of doing the movement, the climbers who walked in a particular rhythm should also be able to feel it as a pleasure as well.
There are some benchmarks that must be considered in the running, of course, stepping, this is the first thing to consider. Walk with small steps, do not force the legs to go too wide. The steps that are too heavy cause is often supported by one leg balance to your body because it is easy to waver. With small steps, weight loss can be firmly supported by both legs. Keep in mind that the foot is not only to hold the weight, but it has been coupled with the heavy stuff in the backpack. With small steps, regular breathing movements, and this is the best way to save energy.
For experienced climbers, walking two or three hours without a break is common. Of course, requires strength and stamina that can only be acquired through training and experience that are not small. However, as a minimum size must be said that walking an hour with a break of ten minutes is normal. (By Satya.)
