Topic - UKC Fit Club week 313

mrchewy - on 17 Mar 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 (312) thread:

Ali - Good effort getting straight back on a climbing wall whilst jet-lagged. Hope Liz didn't push you too hard on the Sunday.
Daniel Heath - A flat week? 4 sessions of bouldering won't have hurt and writing a new food plan will have you at fighting weight quick enough. I need to explore this idea.
deacondeacon - Plenty of climbing again, inc limestone. The skateboard session will work other muscles and add to the fun count, good to see a new sport logged on Fit Club.
grubes - 15hrs indoors in 5 days is going some - you should be crushing in Spain!
Si dH - We have a new skier in the house! Not too much falling by the sounds of it and another hobby to buy kit for. Sounds like you had a solid trip to Font. STG - Comes the Dervish?
NMN - Nice steady week again with no work disruptions. Any specific targets once trad season starts?
AJM - A rounded out session like that will help keep you ticking along nicely and 46 pullups in 5min is dreamland to someone like me. That 7b should go if made the focus next time. Did you manage to make a cup of tea?
Nomics4sale - Always nice to isolate routes you'll enjoy working, Space Race is 7b+ right? Surely Sunday's run should have ended in the ODG and not started there!
Eagle River - It's quite inspiring hearing someone so keenly psyched for overhanging limestone, routes should start to tumble soon. Maybe there should be a Fit Club Malham meet this year.
Ian Bell - How's the injury? Nice work on the 6c+ onsight despite that. Just don't push things too soon and hold back recovery with a trip so near.
leon - 4x4s always seem to kill my skin. A nice example of a solid week's training but the training cycle must be coming to an end soon?
DoctorU - Under the weather and still pushing. That'll pay off soon enough and it's always good to get volume in.
JimmyKay - Good to see exercise fitted in when you've been so busy. Like the way you count your dynamic movements, I've just started doing the same myself but hadn't thought to log static time.
mattrm - Saw your thread e.e. injury. Making sure I eat protein at the right times and getting enough sleep helps me hugely. Don't get too despondent, things turn round eventually. I know this from experience.
Kevster - Shame about Scotland but at least you missed out on fulmars puking over you! Work will often get in the way, making weekends so important. I guess you'll visit White Spider again?
IainRUK - Harz National Park sounds okay and plenty of snow at such a low height. The XC skiing should help the core muscles.
maria85 - Not such a lazy week! Can't help with the falling issue as rarely do routes. Maybe get into the clip position and then hold it for a while after clipping, if you know you can hold on for longer than needed, then the problem will go away? I often stop mid boulder problem and hang on a straight arm as I lacked confidence in my ability to just hold on.
Exile - There's a fair few of us who seem to be fairly decent at this juggling malarky. Nice to hear the climbing's going well and there looked to be a fair bit of volume last week.
pork pie girl - Did the chiro visit help? Another packed week and good to see you enthusiastic about working a route for the next 2 years - hopefully it will go long before then!
ally smith - 64 pullups in 5min? Outstanding! Looks like the finger-boarding is coming along nicely and just at the right time too. 6.9% BF is nothing to be disappointed with.
seankenny - How has the healing gone with the antibiotics? They can leave me quite run down on their own. Good to see you post anyway.
Luke Owens - 5 rest days? Put some effort in man. Seriously, maybe the star turn this week with the new route. Nice little video and it looks pretty varied in it's climbing. Why that name? Top, top work.
kylieo - Nice to see ambition on the 4x4 6c+ and having the sense to downgrade a little. View rest and recovery as training, not a separate thing and planning for it helps hugely.
Jamming Dodger - Nice work on the two runs and a climbing session. It would have been easy to skip Sunday's run with the weather etc, so top effort. A good week all round.
biscuit - Always grand to get to a new crag and find a climb you really like, 40m sports 7a sounds horrific mind! Glad the one legged squats seem to be helping, just don't get lazy at them once they've done their thing. I think that's what cost me lately.
Joughton - Sterling work for the AS results Jake, you only get one shot at them, so well done and same on the 7c+ onsight indoors. Did you get hot aches at Raven Tor? It doesn't count as a cold day otherwise and unless they come mid crux, they can't be used as an excuse. You'll make a winter climber one day if you carry on...
mrchewy - TRY HARDER!
