Hi I am planning on taking a trip to Africa to climb mount Kilimanjaro in the summer of 2011. The trip will last for three weeks.
I am looking for some advice on how I should train during this time. I was hoping to compete in a comp 10 days after I get back to hopefully qualify for the BDFPA unequipped junior championships.
I realise that improving my main lifts over this period of time may be a pipe dream however i feel that i could possibly maintain my strength through the use of a few resistance bands and some body weight work.
I would also appreciate any advice on how to prepare for the meet when I am back in my usual facility whether I should get a bar on my back again after a period away from it or if I should just leave it until the comp.
