PLAY SPECIFIC, AS SPECIFIC IS THE GAME... Ivan Lisicia

PLAY SPECIFIC, AS SPECIFIC IS THE GAME The other day I did a short, one-hour Moon Board session. A few people were surprised that I spent the whole session 'just' on the Board. 'Guys,' I said, 'this is about going to the root. There's no question.' I realized once again that many people are totally confused about how to train for specific goals or at least how to be relatively good on their weekend visits to the crag. Most will agree that to progress in something with as many variables as climbing you must train specific. It is a complex subject and you can't just to decide to do it. First you have to understand what you actually need to do. You must be clever, creative and ready to face your physical and mental weakneses. This ain`t easy.

Stretching for Climbing Katja Vidmar

STRETCHING FOR CLIMBING I decided to write a little article about stretching. I personally do it just because it makes me feel good and I also don’t like to feel stiff when climbing. It is maybe a small part of training but for me it’s pretty important. It’s a good prevention from injuries, it improves my posture, my climbing technique and movement, I have more possibilities when figuring out my beta or I can just save some power by using some high feet or footholds that are far apart. Being flexible has so many benefits and I think every climber should do it. Here are some of my favourite exercises. I would recommend that you do it to the point that is not too uncomfortable for you so you can stay at least 30sec in certain position. If it’s still too hard, try to hold it only for a few seconds and repeat 5-8 times. Don’t give up if you feel you’re not getting anywhere on your first day. It takes some time and you’ll be surprised how things get better if you do it rRead More...
