HOW TO KNOW IF YOUR TRAINING IS WORKING //
I can’t think of any other season where I’ve actually climbed this little in the past few years 🙈
For the most part I’m PSYCHED and okay with this because shit, I quit my full-time job to be a coach and DAMN I love it!!! I love my clients and I love what I do every day.
But I’d be lying if I said I’ve been dedicating as much time as I would like to my own climbing and training.
But guess what?
Even with minimal but TARGETED training I was able to make progress on boulders on this trip, push my limits and honestly was shocked how decent I felt on the rock despite mainly just hanging off a hangbaord lately ✊🏼 How do I know my training is working?
1. It doesn’t take over my life - aka my workouts are short and ultra targeted. I use supersets, stay off my phone while doing the workouts and honestly just FOCUS on the task at hand - even if it’s only 40 minutes
2. It’s incredibly sport and project specific - I have big bouldering goals, I ain’t got no time for hour long hangboard sessions NO THX. My workouts are high-intensity, low volume and I’m using small ass holds to simulate the projects I’m getting on for spring
3. It’s flexible - yep, if I miss a day or two it doesn’t derail any progress that I’ve made or make it impossible to just jump back in. I simply just pick up where I left off and all is well in the world
4. It pays off outside, where it matters - yessss. Very little time outside this season and still making progress despite not being able to link any singular moves earlier in the season
Does your training do this for you?
It dang well should!
We don’t need to spend hours in the gym in order to see results, we do however need incredibly specific and targeted training in order to reach our goals!
