First of all, the hiking sleep walking method: is in the running, with the most natural pace, subconsciously run, in the running, one eye is closed to sleep, the other eye is half closed, only with a slight afterglow look ahead and feet, the whole person thought is the state of sleep, the body is in the running. When walking in this way, you can forget about fatigue and other. In fact, it is also a way to relax. What else can't be forgotten when one walks to a state where one can sleep! Coming back to the excitement control in hiking many athletes know to control their excitement, not to come too fast, but also not too late. In fact, long distance hiking is also very important for excitement control.

Through many outdoor activities, I hope that hikers, pay attention to, adjust and control their excitement and endurance points, and allocate their time and energy reasonably, which will be of great benefit to hiking. The following are the hiking tips summarized by the editor.

First, Breath Adjustment and Uphill Stepping

Breathing and walking together are important hiking techniques, especially when carrying heavy loads uphill. When starting uphill, be sure to slow down, then follow the rule of taking a breath, step, then exhale and step out again; if you feel out of breath after a few steps on a steep slope according to this rule, you should shorten your steps and then follow the above breathing pace intermittently; if you start walking on a steep slope for 2 or 3 hours without having to rest and catch your breath, it means that you have succeeded in this gas-regulating step. Of course, when climbing steeper slopes and carrying a heavier backpack, you need to inhale and exhale before moving up a small step; in addition, you are reminded that you need to breathe hard and deep when inhaling, so that not only the air supply can be increased, but also the adjustment of air can be done better, and the chance of altitude sickness will be reduced.

Second, Rest Step

This pace is every step up, the back of the foot must be played straight, only the size of the legs to play straight, weight and thrust can be completely supported by the legs, so that the size of the leg muscles can get some rest; on the contrary, the knee never played straight, of course, muscle fatigue is easy to overload, and even thigh cramps.

Three, Up and Down the Gravel Slope of the Footwork

Up and down the less steep gravel slope, the sole of the shoe needs to completely contact the slope of the gravel slope slope, so as to use the maximum friction, easy and effortless to walk on the gravel slope; if the fear of falling and the use of horizontal pace or toe force ditch, but very laborious, if you encounter a steeper gravel slope, with the force of the size of the legs, the shoe flat push into the gravel slope, or launch a foot platform before moving up; downhill can use the heel to step down The power of the heel can be used to step down the slope, so that the slope of gravel appears a footing point before continuing to move down the pace. In addition, you can also use the rocks on the trail to go up or down the slope, so that they are as comfortable as walking on flat ground, which is another practical pace technique; but in the use of rocks, to step on the position of the center of gravity, otherwise it is easy to cause ankle sprain! If you can practice diligently, later even rolling stones, you can also walk freely.

Four, Blister Treatment Method Use

Hiking activities often occur after the foot blister situation, here to introduce a used medical way, cut the Velcro cloth than the blister 3 times larger than the area, and then cut the center of the patch and blister the same size and shape of the hole, set paste in the periphery of the blister, so high around the blister, in order to let the blister is no longer friction, of course, will not be hurt again, and then use 3M breathable paper tape to seal the blister and strengthen the fixed, after this treatment After this treatment, the pain will slowly improve. When you walk the trail, as long as you find any little discomfort or pain in the foot, you should stop and check; if there is no blister, then hurry up and put the painful part on 3M breathable tape; if there is a blister, you should immediately use Velcro cloth treatment, you can immediately walk freely. Remind the reader, there are blisters do not pierce it, easy to be infected by bacteria.
