On this episode, Adam, Wardo, and the mastermind behind the BTK training program, Jer, discuss planning for next year and why priority-based, intentional training is critical for the dedicated mountain or backcountry hunter.

It’s a wide ranging conversation covering mistakes they’ve all made in the past, how to assess what the right program is for wherever you are in your fitness journey, how to prioritize your training goals and methods, why cramming your fitness into a condensed timeframe is problematic, training with longevity in mind, and so much more.

Now that the most demanding hunts of the 2022 season are, for the most part, behind us, this is THE time to look back on what worked and what didn’t and make adjustments to your training plans for 2023.
