Towards the end of January, I attended a Smart Climbing Workshop – Winter Training – Maximising Your Performance. The workshop was excellent and delivered by two well respected climbing coaches – Dr Rebecca Williams and John Kettle.
I worked with John in the morning. Looking at core climbing exercises to strengthen the shoulders and hips. As a result of this, John quickly highlighted a few areas that needed work. This means, I was able to develop an action plan to sort out these areas.
The afternoon was an entirely different affair! Route reading & mental preparation techniques were the menu items for this session . Using these new techniques allowed the climbing to flow with the appropriate mix of dynamic moves, static moves and rests.
A really thought provoking course and I look forward to achieving my climbing objectives for 2019.
