Hill Fit: Strength-The Missing Element In Your Training is an Ebook by Chris Highcock. If you don’t know who Chris is, you should. He’s the owner/writer of the Conditioning Research Blog. It’s very popular blog that examines the science around fitness, diet, exercise and some of the personalities in the fitness world.
The ebook, Hill Fit is an effort to combine one of Chris’ loves, hiking, with a well rounded fitness approach. Most people will view ‘activities’ as self contained exercise mechanisms. They bike, swim, do Zumba, run or practice Tai Chi. The truth is that these physical pastimes fall short in certain measurable realms for complete protocols.
Chris bridges the gap between what is enjoyable activity and what is necessary. He does it in a clear, concise manner and backs his belief with research.

What I liked – The bare bones, structured approach to fitness. Simplicity and minimalism leaves little excuse not to get going and get fit.

What I didn’t like – Chris is using the HIT method of training as his strength training component. I’m not a fan of this method. It does however, keep things brief and focused. Perhaps it was his intent not to overwhelm the reading with anything but simple tools that can be integrated in a sophisticated manner.

I’d suggest you check this Ebook out. It’s available here. Click here to visit Hillfit.
