/ Slogans for Beastmaker
Some use(full/less) comments uttered by climbing partners as encouragement:
If you aren't flying you aren't trying.
Less skin, less weight.
No pain, no gain.
One move further.
Just crimp it.
If at first you don't succeed, become a dirty headpointer.
A few classics...
I am beastly.
quitters dont win, winners dont quit
Scary at age 8!
"Pain is weakness leaving the body."
Get a picture of Jerry. And write underneath in a speech bubble something like "Is that all you've got?"
pain is temporary, glory is forever...
Man up, Princess!
> "Pain is weakness leaving the body."
-occasionally via the A5 pulley, so warm up properly, and stop while still strong
We've got 'It's meant to be hard' near ours but I realise that could be interpreted a few ways...
In one of the first indoor walls I ever climbed at, there was a small training section with some fingerboards and someone had written "YOU ARE FAT AND WEAK, TRAIN MORE"
Although I'm not sure if that's motivating or just insulting ;-)
" Oh no not you again fatty"?
Or in true Chopper Read style:
"Harden the Fu*k Up."

Reminds me a bit of Bike Snob NYC's "Power Meter for Amateur Cyclists":
if you can't be good be strong
if you can't be strong be light
if you cant be strong or light, take up darts
Go Full Force!
