Training for climbing videos
July 24, 2012, 11:05:30 am
Watched this yesterday and thought it would be good to have a thread with training videos for ideas and psyche.



All good stuff  :2thumbsup: though her definition of frenchies is different to mine

What do you call Frenchies? That's what I'd thought of them as, not that I ever do them.
I see you added her on facebook..  :wub:

I just kept on thinking on many of the exercises that a good number of people would end up with screwed elbows if they trained like this.

What I do is hang to broken lock pull to half lock to full lock back to half lock then hang = One french pull-up

Bit disappointed - I read the thread title as training for 'climbing videos' rather than 'training for climbing' videos.

I was eagerly expecting some insights into valuable techniques to look good on video such as how to flash the flesh while avoiding nipple rash, how to teach your dog to walk past looking cute just before you go for the crux and the ever essential facial warm-ups for maximum gurning.

how to teach your dog to walk past looking cute just before you go for the crux

Is this a good thing?

If I get another dog it's going to be a big one called 'Spot' and trained accordingly

By that logic you should have called your current dog 'Lemming'.

More about mental techniques than physical training, but this helped me a lot:

I thought this was going to be about training yourself to watch progressively harder problems so you don't fall off mentally from being impressed. I like to start with Stick It and then progress through the dosages as this provides a good gradual increase in maximum grade but with little change in quality. This got me from watching 8A to 8C in less than a few hours.

Where can one purchase those round ball-style rock rings shown in the first video? Would love a pair like that! :)

They are called Lapis rolly balls and come in two sizes. Have a google.
