it should help.

For me I find more miles than more weight helps. Got to train your feet and legs to walk for 12 hours straight, or however much you plan to hike.

I’m a early 40’s not in great shape guy and was able to do 20 mile days in Colorado. Walked at least 3 miles every day and maybe twice a week 8-10 miles. Never really carried a weighted pack other than the last week. That was more to check the load and how to pack everything. I started about 3 months before the trip.

I also did some biking just to add more aerobic type exercises.
