I climbed 1,200+ methods each day for a thirty day period – and now I have quads of metal

Imagine my chagrin when less than 3 months right before my Peruvian trek, I found out from seasoned Inca Path hikers that the most arduous part of the four-working day journey is climbing these enormous cobblestone staircases that make up a huge chunk of the path and that they wished they focused on stair teaching ahead of their really very first hike.

Being a Los Angeleno, I’ve been an professional hiker for decades. We’re a town of hikers, soon after all. It is what we do below. I’ve hiked the bordering mountain ranges in Southern California, the Sierra Nevada up north, the tall sand dunes in the Mojave Desert, and the Northern and Southern Coast ranges together the California coast.
