My Climbing Training Regime – August 2016

My climbing has improved SIGNIFICANTLY with a solid training regime. If you want results, you’ve got to be strict about your nutrition, exercise and rest!

I don’t think I’ve ever made a post about my training in particular. Personally, I work best with writing out a plan to follow, even if I don’t refer to it everyday. Just the act of writing it down on paper brings it to life and reminds me that I can’t modify or eliminate things as I please. It’s there, and it’ll work as long as I stick to it!

I’ve been working a lot on my power, so you’ll see lots of pull ups and tricep dips. Power is definitely my strength, but I want to build it up as much as I can before I move on to the next phase of my training, power endurance, in a couple of weeks. That phase will be a challenge because I find I run out of gas quite fast on a route, despite recovering quite quickly and typically starting off strong. So, with that in the future, I’m enjoying my power for now 🙂
