When looking at mountain trekking, high-altitude climbing you need to know that there is a predisposition based on your blood type determining whether or not this type of adventure is something that you are likely going to do well in.
At first let’s look at ancestry in order to get some hints whether or not it is in your nature to participate in such a sport.
Let’s say you’re blood type …
A people are the least likely to do well. A people are the descendants of the first farmers living a relaxed, planned-out life without too many surprises. Taking risks is not in the nature of blood type A people. Usually low-altitude locations tend to be the homes of the ancestors of blood type A people. Under stress, blood type A people tend to easily panic which is never a good thing in situations where every decision counts.
If you are blood type A and planning to go to the Himalayas, prepare yourself as follows:
– Don’t only plan the trip. Prepare mentally and visualize your adventure.
– Force yourself to spend a few hours a week preparing. Be it Yoga, meditation or swimming while concentrating on training yourself to hold your breath for a long time. Anything you think you should do to make you feel ready for the quest is advised to do.
– Activate your intuition. It helps us survive. The inner antenna will lead you when the map is lost or there is no GPS.
Your oxygen supply is based on adrenaline or lack thereof. And that is based on your inner state. Do you really want to climb through the mountain ranges? Then ask yourself first why. If a sufficient answer is found, never lose focus of that reason or goal.
Blood type A people tend to do well when determined, but this determination needs to be found within. You don’t have to be a natural at anything or love it for it to grow on you eventually.
Do not assume you can just do something and be good at it right away. Take your time, absorb feedback, watch what others do and how they do it.
Then pick a date a while ahead and continue not just with the focus on your goal, but also the reward after which you will have to visualize while on your quest.
Blood type O people are the natural born hunters. Their goal: Get the meat.
When it comes to long-term excursions however, blood type O people tend to not do as well.
Blood type O people however are the most intuitive. So the key is to only face on the reason you really want to do mountain climbing. Then keep your eyes on that if you believe the goal is worth it. The rest will come when it comes.
Under no circumstances continue your journey, should you ever doubt that you should do it.
Prepare yourself as follows:
Be good to yourself. Simple as it sounds. You need positive energy to make it through. The physical strain can be bypassed easily by simply developing the right technique for your own body and state of mind. But you need to be centered. And when you are, you will find a way to make it through and do very well.
B people are mind over matter. And not only that. Said to have originated in the Himalayas, blood type B is associated with a strong will. Your will is already there. SO now the key is to focus on the physical aspects.
Train endurance, long-distance running might be great. Swimming as well as hitting the gym and focusing on related movements such as pull-ups.
“Living in both worlds”, AB people have to simply ignore one side, the one that wants relaxation and planned-out and predictable lifestyles. In order to properly prepare yourself for the quest, give “the other side” what is craved for the time before trekking and treat yourself to as much stress-free life as you possibly can. It is within you to do well when mountain trekking, so do not worry about not making it.
Do some training and don’t allow yourself to get sidetracked.
