A few months ago Moon invited their international MoonClimbing team over to the UK, and while they were here they pinned them down to get some of their top training hints and tips, to help improve your rock climbing, or as we say they Moon #trainHardclimbHarder.
Thus video is by David Fitzgerald, and he talks through effective board training using the MoonBoard. David has been rockclimbing for four years and has already climbed some of the hardest boulder problems in the peak district.
This is a breakdown of the session:
Find 10 problems at or near your limit.
They should fulfil such criteria as:
A - match your goal climbs in length and difficulty
B - imitate your climbing aims in terms of where the crux move might be on your projects
C - be very basic so you should avoid twisting, drop knees, toe hooks etc so that you climb in a wide or open position to strengthen and stabilise the shoulders and strengthen the hips.
Practice the circuit until you can complete all ten problems with minimal rest.
