Topic - Is this a decent new years training routine?

colin8ll on 04 Jan 2013
Hi all,

I'm trying to devise a New Years training plan to get generally fit and strong (so not specifically for climbing). I've managed to train in the past for a couple of months at a time to achieve climbing goals but then I seem to loose motivation, get a wee bug or something and the training slips. So I'm trying to come up with a training plan that will have enough variety to keep me interested for longer.

The plan is to work on a different area of the body each day

Day 1 = finger strength
Day 2 = core
Day 3 = upper body
Day 4 = legs
Day 5 = deep stretching session

And for each day I plan to devise a couple of different routines to keep things interesting.

My question is will this plan lead to improvements in each area? i.e. if I only work specifically on finger strength once every five days am I likely to see improvements or do I need to work on it more frequently? This being the case I could devise routines with exercises that work each muscle group more frequently.

Any thoughts and advise would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Colin
