WHAT WE DO
do your best!
A brilliant strength workout is climbing. Shorter climbs are all about power, while over longer climbs you can work on your stamina.
You need to concentrate on manoeuvres while you climb, which will help you build problem-solving skills.
Use your legs and let your arms dead hang until your next move, because tension in your arms will fatigue you quickly. It’s not just about strength but how well you move.
Pull-ups aid your climbing strength, so you should spend more time on bodyweight exercise. No one cares about what you can bench or squat on a rock wall.
There’s nothing worse than cramping up mid-movement and coming off the wall to swing around like a fool. Devote time to stretching before and after your climb.
A route plan is essentially a cheat sheet that helps you to make decision before hand and keep track of your progress. Pick your route difficulty and assess the best way up.
