Topic - UKC Fit Club week 310

AJM - on 24 Feb 2013
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 (309) thread:

deacondeacon - sounds like good progress down at the wall since you joined us - starting to match indoor and outdoor bouldering levels and getting up a 7a on the main lead wall there is something I've never managed, too steep for my liking
seankenny - sounds like between the falls and tackling the steep sections of wall you're working on weaknesses which can only be a good thing in the long run
Kevster - well jealous of you getting out at the weekend. In terms of the arm strength I think it's something I could work on too. Felt like the "50 pullups in 5 minutes" thing was helping on the power endurance side, but haven't really done any arm specific strength training for some time. Sounds like you've identified it as a weakness, so keep hitting it hard by whatever methods and you'll reap the benefits, even if it's tedious at the time (can't be worse than core?!)
mrchewy - the pullups from horizontal is something I ought to work out a way to do too, sounds pretty relevant. sounds like a reflective week - personally I am a one sport kind of person but others on here manage to crush at several things simultaneously so it's clearly possible....;)
Si dH - sounds like you're on form, definitely peaking round the right sort of time for Font. I look forwards to hearing of crushing. I'll struggle to keep up when you start applying this to "proper climbing" ;)
mattrm - good to see that despite those goal changes you've kept the long term ones as a beacon to aspire towards. With the core, it really does look like people are focusing in on weaknesses this week...
IainRUK - don't blame you for missing it, sounds grim...!
Eagle River - sounds like someone's getting hooked! Good to have something like that to aim towards- I tried right hand man several times "just for a look" before committing to it.
Exile - how are you getting on with the 4x4s...?
leon - possibly not as relevant for your power endurance phase atm, but I'm amazed at the moment by the improvements I'm still seeing on very low volume training. Maybe decent rests are the way to go after all...
biscuit - progress on the project? Know what you mean about losing inspiration for boards etc - haven't touched my fingerboard since I moved, just not been arsed enough. 
kylieo - what's the plan for June then? Having something to aim for definitely keeps me motivated through the cold winter months
Nomics4sale - progress on the 7b? Sometimes getting on them is half the battle. Sometimes, of course, that's nonsense and the route itself gives the battle ;)
Daniel Heath - has the headpointing made you think about changing future goals at all, or are you thinking of it more as a diversion
grubes - nice one on the slate! Good job on the promotion too :)
Ally Smith - blame it on Barrows ;) good job on wss, but you'll never get strong if you keep breaking yourself on random scrittle ;)
annak - good miles...
maria85 - sounds like a good weekend. The Ben can be an intimidating old place can't it!
NMN - sounds like a pretty busy week...
Jamming dodger - the dog ate your week, like it! As for being a hungover inspiration, I'm hungover and you've inspired me to, well, continue being hungover :)
DoctorU - so have you stopped admiring the beastmaker and started cranking on it yet?
Ian Bell - I tried to think of something useful to say about your week - is "vague" helpful ;)? Did you get out?
Sankey - sounds like a really good and productive trip! Nice one. 7a shouldn't be far off now if you commit to one. Have you any in mind?
Luke Owens - that's a good writeup for Boysens Groove! Worryingly psyched for some welsh bouldering this year. Sounds like a good day out.
