EP 131 Body Mobility for the Mountains with Chase Tucker

Chase Tucker is a long-distance backpacker from Tasmania who specializes in training backpackers in the field of overall body mobility and fitness for their outdoor adventures. Chase is also an accomplished backpacker and traveler having hiked through both the Annapurna and Everest regions of Nepal as well as some of Spain’s long trails through the Pyrenees mountain range. I first found Chase through YouTube where I easily deep dove a number of his videos both for their information and sense of adventure. Chase has a way of finding a great balance of providing you with important information as well as telling the story of his hike. After a few exchanges online, Chase agreed to come on the podcast to talk about his background, why he does what he does, and the challenges hikers face in terms of overall mobility. This episode is packed full of great actionable information you can implement on your next hike or your training schedule. Chase is one of the most sincere individuals you’ll come across and you can tell he has a passion for what he does. He cares deeply about the overall health and wellness of his students and is dedicated to helping them reach their goals. Emory, By LandBy Land LinksLEARN HOW TO BACKPACK https://www.learnhowtobackpack.com/YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChSSISEgIfwYz2cc0aHQj3gFACEBOOK GROUP https://www.facebook.com/groups/1192723304224313/INSTAGRAM https://www.instagram.com/byland.co DONATE: https://byland.co/donateShow Notes and LinksIntroductions and getting to know ChaseThe backstory on ChaseThe story of Chase helping a fellow hiker fix his lower body on the trailChase’s approach to fitness and mobilityIssues the majority of hikers are dealing withCommon feet problemsChoosing footwear for the conditionsAddressing “weak” ankles and finding the root cause Exercises for building ankle strength Daily movement for hikers (video)Addressing hip issues and increasing hip mobilityThe importance of engaging the glutesThe importance of trekking polesBackpacking and hiking in SpainLong-distance hiking through Spain How to follow up with Chase and learn morehttps://basecamptraining.com.au/https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTEopVgqNCUhJq57CxTc4awhttps://www.instagram.com/chase_mountains/https://www.patreon.com/chasemountainshttps://youtu.be/WQauQv4uDLs
