This Training Tuesday video is 80s awesome! I don’t know how much climbing training information you’re going to get out of it but you will definitely be entertained. Expect John Long, spandex pants, body belays, and synthesizer music. 🙂
In this Training Tuesday video Kelios Bonetti MD PhD explains five training errors that cause injury and how to avoid them. It’s a little slow and English-only speakers will have to read the subtitles but there’s a really lot of good information here.
For example, when doing pull ups, don’t extend the elbows completely. Hanging with a straight arm can result in elbow tendonitis and other injuries. Instead, make sure the arm has at least a 10 to 15 degree bend at the bottom of the pull up.
In this Training Tuesday video Galina Parfenov takes her training up a notch with lots of campusing. She says 80% of her training is on the campus board! There’s also a good section on suspension strap core training.
If you’re just getting started with climbing you should stay away from campusing until your fingers get stronger but if you’ve been climbing for a few years you might want to give it a shot.
