Although what I actually said was 1.5x bench and 1.5x pullup would equal muscle ups. Find me someone with those numbers who can't do a muscle up.
While steep board climbing would likely be better, I reckon these would be the best 2 non climbing exercises for burl. If you can bench and row 1.5 times your bodyweight then you can automatically do all the supposedly more climbing exercises like T's on TRX, explosive pullups or muscle ups, etc. Probably way before reaching 1.5x actually. You wouldn't be found wanting more body strength at this point.
No climbing is misery inducing.
I was obviously pulling numbers out my arse but it just seemed obvious to me that someone who is generally strong will do well at burly climbing, and pullups and bench press are great exercises for building general strength. We've all seen the non-climber gym bro types who can campus all the v2's with socks under their rental shoes, but don't know what a slab is.Out of interest how much have you been able to add to your weighted pullups over time without seeing an impact on your climbing?
(incidentally my half-decent benches are always so slow on successful maxes that it's like watching Moose staticking the Who Are We Without Moon dyno over several minutes....). I have been meaning to train explosive power more, but it's also even worse for tendons
Actually I have wondered what the general comparisons "should" be for a relatively normal fit / strong climber as regards:Number of pull-upsMax weight pull-upMax squatMax deadliftMax benchMax overhead pressMax rowMax bicep curl
Do those people at the top end do pull-ups with 3.5 x BW as well??
