This particular workout has been particularly successful for me these past few months. I’ve noticed an improvement with my grip strength especially with small crimps and slopers. Also, and I don’t know if this is the work of lady luck or a product of finger training, but this is the first year I’ve gone without a pulley injury *I’m currently knocking hard on my wooden desk*. In either case, my fingers feel as strong as ever.
The Moonboard revolutionizes the home climbing gym by offering near infinite choices of routes on a simple 2.44m x 3.15m 40 degree frame. All Moonboards are built the same way including the spacing of T-nuts. You purchase a hold kit from Moonboard and then place your holds according to a numbered pattern pre-chosen by the company. Everyone all over the world will then have an identical wall – holds, angle, spacing… everything!
Welcome to the 12 days of Fitness Challenge: Climbing Edition! 12 challenges in 12 days, it’s just that simple. My fitness buddy Carlie, whom you all know from previous posts, and I sat down and came up with 12 grueling fitness and climbing challenges neither of us would perform of our own volition. We wrote these challenges on 12 slips of paper, threw them in a festive stocking and will proceed to draw a new one each day!
I stumbled upon this particular endurance workout in Eric Horst’s “How to Climb 5.12”. Despite it appearing straight forward, it is no easy feat. I highly recommend this book and many others by Horst if you’ve become interested in climbing training.
