Crushing Tip #16

To get the most out of your climbing workout you should structure your day at the gym. Try following these three steps as a general rule of thumb for planning your climbing sessions.

1. Thoroughly warm-up: Do some general activities that warm the body like biking or running and warm up your joints by moving them through their full range of motion such as doing arm circles. Then traverse and/or do some easy climbs to get your climbing specific muscles warm and ready to go.
2. Try new things: While you are fresh get on some harder climbs that involve using new technique.
3. Get a workout: Climb routes that you already have the sequence on to build endurance or strength.

Now, go get started!

Crushing Tip #15

Rest is an important part of any training plan, but that doesn’t mean you should go home and play x-box and eat cookies on your day off. Try adding cardio and core workouts to your off days. Adding cardiovascular workouts to your regimen can make those long climbs seem a bit shorter and those hard moves seem a bit easier. A cardio workout can be attained by completing just 30 minutes of continuous activity such as going for a jog, using a cardio machine or attending our Cycling class.  Edgeworks also offers Pilates and Yoga to help build core strength.
