Topic - UKC fit club 298

Liking Ally Smith’s STG – Avoid Christmas Gluttony
Best to think about this one early before the temptations arise.

UKC Fit Club is not a substitute for the training diary but to use with ( or without ) it as a motivational tool for all.

For those wanting to find out more about training for climbing a number of physical training articles here:

A new thread is posted each week on Sunday for anyone to jot down their previous week's activity, noting goals, successes and failures and to swap ideas.

Anyone interested in starting is very welcome but you should aim to post each week, every week, however little or much you have done. By making such a regular public record of your activities and by restating your goals every week this new habit will hopefully improve your training habits to help achieve your goals whatever the level of your chosen activity.
Link to last week's (297) thread:
Ally_smith – Good to see you back. Read your blog, it sounds like a lot of adventure packed into two days of climbing.
Kevster – A couple of weeks of endurance now would make a difference for Chorro…
AJM – Good sessions. Maybe fill your rest days with little extras like press ups, core?
Joughton – Monday sounds like a mega session, I think I’ve done less in a whole week! It would be cool to see a vid of your Nosferatu HP when you go for it 
Seankenny – Well done on BFD. Hope to see some more “proper training”
Deacondeacon – Welcome to fit club! Looks like a good first week of training. Remember to post your week even when you have bad ones ;)
Richard Popp – Good to hear your resolve to train your weaknesses after reassessing your goals. I’ve no doubt you can get some gains in the next few weeks with this focus.
IanRUK – Good work running in your flight days when many would find an excuse to do nothing.
Eagle River – Good couple of sessions. Always good to take a big fall now and then.
Biscuit – Ah the dilemma between training for long term and resting for performance… Don’t let me catch you on bodyfat :P (12-14.5% currently)
Nomics4Sale – Gentle fingerboarding isn’t too much to ask. Do some!
Grubes – Grubes is back I the game! Psyche is good news
JimmyKay – I guess your job restricts your training much more than your student life… Still good to see you get enough done to improve. Clearly good quality sessions.
Ali – Another good week, and even your plans for “maintenance” seem plenty.
NMN – Sounds like you pushed yourself this week. Good work on the PB
Si_dH – Face reality and step on the scales :P Another busy week, take care of that finger.
Maria85 – I think you’re allowed to eat cake on your birthday! Well done getting a bit of everything in even if you were feeling groggy
Mrchewy – Well done getting on a 6b. You’re strong enough to climb 6b, so I’m sure you’ll cruise them with some endurance + route climbing tactics (efficiency, resting, clipping etc).
Mattrm – Lots of good phys there. Sorry to hear about your gran.
Ian Bell – Good luck campussing, it’s great for quick results if you don’t get injured.
Rollo – Well done getting 3 sessions in, but I expect you could squeeze some form of exercise into those rest days?
Exile – Solid week. 1:20 on 6b+ sounds v tough
Pork Pie Girl – To echo Ali, your training volume puts most of us to shame! Hope your injury recovers soon
Oddtoast – I’m glad climbing’s become a part of your life! At least you’re still running. It’s good to see you persevere with Couch to 5K.
Pebbles – Wishing you a quick recovery
Curious Yellow – Wow 5 sessions is a lot. Good that you’re pushing yourself
Annak – Great week, and well done for having the discipline to rest. You could do a “recovery” run or some press ups if you feel the need for something?
