For some time I have reached a plateau in climbing. Early in the season I work up to a certain level then do not break through to the higher grades. I have a burning desire to climb at a higher level and have realized that this will not happen unless I Stay On Track with a focused training and fitness workout during the off season and each week through out the year.
Matt and I have designed a current plan that will have us peaking just in time early spring rock climbing. Our focused indoor workouts are for two hours twice a week, in addition we are running and climbing.
No matter how I look at it climbing it requires a high level of fitness. I am scaling vertical or overhanging walls of rock and ice. Climbing requires a very good overall fitness level, including exceptional grip strength, a strong core and last but not least is the cardio which must be included.
As I look out ahead to the winter ice and spring rock season I am excited. This will be the season to reach new heights climbing exceptional routes with good friends.
Stay tuned for updates on Fitness and Training with MMG.
