《三浦雄一郎之步行技術》
作者:三浦雄一郎、三浦豪太

話說戰國時期有個燕國少年,聞說趙國邯鄲人走路走得漂亮,便前赴當地學習。豈料學師不成,竟連本身如何走路都忘記,結果要爬著回家。

這個故事,也許有點誇張,不過倒也道出了步行原來亦有技術可言。所謂世事洞明皆學問,本以為走路誰不會?但讀過《三浦雄一郎之步行技術》之後,才明白「步行」這件看來再尋常不過的事情,原來大有學問。

這本書由父親三浦雄一郎與兒子三浦豪太合著而成。父親分別曾於70、75、80歲攀登聖母峰,創下最高齡登上此峰者的世界紀錄,本書亦標榜這點,強調只要有決心並通過恰當練習,年紀並不構成登山障礙。

然而不得不提,三浦雄一郎年輕時原來是滑雪運動員,曾經創下從七大洲最高峰滑雪下降的壯舉。但在名成利就之後,他漸失去紀律,終日應酬之下,胖得連自己都接受不了。眼見父親人在高齡,與及兒子年紀輕輕,分別都在為滑雪而刻苦努力,他自覺慚愧,終於下定決心要改變——他要由零開始,從平路訓練做起,循序漸進鍛鍊體能,以攀上聖母峰為目標。

所以書的前半部是三浦雄一郎的心路及訓練歷程,後半則是兒子從理論角度,指導讀者如何從事訓練。步行訓練最大的優勢就是簡單,它隨時可以開始。就地取材,附近的平路或樓梯全部可以成為訓練場。如果各位有意好好練習健行,或是簡單通過走樓梯鍛鍊身體的話,讀讀三浦父子的著作,相信必有所得。

The Walking Techniques of Yuichirou Miura
by Yuichirou Miura and Gota Miura

You might have thought that walking, as simple as it may seem, requires no skills, but your perception may change after reading this book.

This book is written by Yuichirou Miura and his son Gota Miura. Yuichirou conquered Everest at the age of 70, 75 and 80 and built a record for the oldest person to reach the summit. As brought out in the book, with determination, perseverance and proper training, age isn’t an obstacle to mountaineering.

Yuichirou used to be a skier when he was young, having skied down the highest mountains of the seven continents. Yet as he soared to fame and success, he started to lose self-discipline and indulged in entertainment, resulting in a body weight that he himself couldn’t even accept. Seeing his ageing father and young son spare no effort in skiing, he felt ashamed and was determined to change. He decided to start from the basics—training on ground to build a strong physique so that he could reach the summit of Mount Everest one day.

The first half of this book features Yuichirou’s training experience while the second half are training instructions given by his son. What’s best about walking is that it’s simple and anyone can start training anytime and anywhere, be it on the ground or on stairs. If you would like to stay fit and healthy by walking or climbing stairs, I’m sure this book will give you some insight into the exercise.
