/ climbing strength
What are people's thoughts on fingerboards?
What are the best websites / books for indoor training techniques?
Dave Macleod's website and book are great. The Beastmaker website is popular.
+1 for Dave Macleod's book - thought it was excellent, but you need to put some work in to figure out what training you need. I eventually went to a climbing coach, who spotted that I was weak in some very specific but unexpected areas. I had adapted my climbing moves to get round these weaknesses, which meant that there was a range of moves that I could not use because I never tried them. I have since started specific strength exercises and it is making a difference. I guess the point is that training is better when is focused on what you need, so the first step is to find where you are weak. If a coach is too much then maybe feedback from other climbers etc?
Good luck with getting strong!
