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.
I’m pleased to announce the beginning of my #tryhardthursday blog post and video series! Every Thursday I vow to publish a post and a video regarding something climbing related. Suggestions are welcome. Stay tuned for the sickest amateur videos I can offer. 🙂
Okay, so I’m starting off with something that is a bit boring, but only because this device will make it into many future videos. I mean, it’s a cool device. But don’t worry, future videos won’t be DIYs.
When you’re browsing Instagram in bed before you fall asleep (as we all do) you notice that some pro-climbers are posting videos of themselves doing one arm pull ups. If you’re like me, you find it freaking impressive as all hell. Simply trying one arms is insanely difficult it turns out, so I decided to look into some exercises to help a little ol’ novice like me.
Pull ups are a natural result of climbing religiously, but sometimes we hit that plateau. Pull ups, as opposed to chin ups, work many muscles making them an effective workout for your forearms, shoulders, arms and core.
