  2. The choice of the team, first determine whether you want to choose a business team or an AA team, expecting to get more services from business activities may be disappointing, AA activities are everyone AA mutual help, but everyone is taking care of themselves Under the premise, help others, and do not pray in the AA team for the whole team to help you, to consider more convenient for everyone. Try to choose a familiar team or team member, and your physical condition is similar to your own.

  5. Just start walking can slow down a bit, let each part of the body preheat, there is a process of adaptation, after 5-10 minutes to speed up the pace.
  6. Players should maintain a reasonable distance between them, generally 2-3 meters. The safety distance of the team is generally not more than ten minutes or less than 200 meters during the day, but the actual situation is that small teams can often do this. The team before and after the team of more than six people is half an hour away. It is normal. When you don’t recognize the road, you can confirm whether you are on the wrong road. The night must be within 5 minutes or 20 meters. The night road is easy to get lost.
  7. When going up and down the slope, the stones, branches, and rattans that are hand-pull must be pulled by hand to see if they can be stressed, and then do other climbing up and down movements to avoid accidental injuries, especially those that are inaccessible. The route, too many dead woods.
  8. Don’t just walk down and miss the surrounding scenery. Walking outdoors, physical fitness is only one of the purposes, do not go for the purpose of some so-called “self-abuse”, the strength of physical exertion, and sometimes will not be worth the candle.

If you eat too much, it is estimated that the road may not be able to go. The more food and drink here refers to the frequency of eating and drinking. When hiking, the body’s heat loss is large. In order to replenish physical strength, it is necessary to replenish water and food on time.
  12. Drinking water should be based on the principle of less and less, and drinking water is also active. Don’t wait for thirst to passively drink water. Drinking two or three small mouths each time is good. Too thirsty can shorten the time of drinking water, increase the number of drinking times, and drink too much water at one time. The body can’t absorb the precious water source, but it increases the burden on the heart. Drink plenty of water as appropriate before climbing the slope.
  13. The rest of the walking should be combined in length and length, short and long. Usually, take a short break on the way as much as possible within 5 minutes, and do not remove the backpack and other equipment, to stand and rest, adjust breathing. Rest for a long time at 60-90 minutes, rest time is 15-20 minutes, long-term rest should be unloaded backpacks and other weight-bearing equipment, first stand and adjust breathing for 2-3 minutes, can sit down, do not Stop and sit down and rest, this will increase the burden on the heart; you can lie down and raise your legs, so that the blood of the congested legs will return to the heart as much as possible.
  14. Do not take off your shoes during the break. Walking for a long time will definitely be swollen, and it is more uncomfortable to take off your shoes once you wear them.
  15. The temperature difference between day and night in mountainous areas is large, and the temperature rises at altitude (-6 degrees / vertical 1000M). Keeping warm is a must, especially after a lot of sweating and before going to bed. Prepare warm clothing and choose the right sleeping bag accordingly. When the clothes are wet by rain or sweat, the speed of heat dissipation is amazing. At this time, dry underwear should be replaced as soon as possible. Conditional underwear such as Coolmax and other quick-drying fabrics can be selected.
  16. Don’t take the risk of walking the night. Many of the lost roads happen when the visibility is very low, and the night road is easy to cause a loss. When you have to walk the night road, it is best to have a headlight, and the flashlight will occupy one hand, which is not conducive to balance protection.
  17. Pay attention to protect the knee joint and develop the correct walking posture. If you can have two trekking poles to walk with you, you can bring a lot of conveniences. Moreover, it is possible to reduce the possibility of injury to the knee joint due to impact.
  18. Outdoor climbing, the feet are the most diligent and hard, and you must be kind to your feet. Don’t wear new shoes, because the feet and new shoes are not yet worn, wearing new shoes can easily cause fatigue and injury. Reloading in the mountains, all kinds of situations will be encountered, so you should choose the right high-top hiking shoes. The hiking shoes are thick and made of hard rubber. The bottom has a large and deep pattern, which can play a good anti-slip effect. It can effectively protect the feet on gravel and the uneven road surface; the upper is high and hard. Can play the role of supporting the ankle; wearing this kind of shoes, water is not easy to immerse into the shoes.

After putting on the shoes, you should feel whether the toes can move. If you can’t move, the shoes are too small, and there should be some gap at the front of the toes. Also, walk around, if the heel and the heel slide, it is easy to scratch the foot, this kind of shoes is also inappropriate.

  1. The laces should not be too loose or too tight, which would cause the feet to fatigue prematurely and be easily injured. It is best to use a flat ribbon shoelace, not around rope shoelace because the rope-like shoelace is not easy to fasten and easy to loosen.
  2. The size of the socks should be moderate. It is best to use Coolmax fabric socks to absorb sweat, perspiration, and good touch. It is suitable for walking for many days. If the field activities are long, prepare a few pairs of socks.
