Topic - UKC Fit Club Week 370

mattrm - on 20 Apr 2014
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 are linked here: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=274502

The following training article by Alex Barrows has recently been brought up http://alexbarrowsclimbing.blogspot.com.es/2014/02/training-for-sport-climbing.html It contains information about the four main "energy systems" and how to train each one specifically.

Psyche video of the week - http://vimeo.com/42893621 (Ricky Bell with a broken toe) - Suggestions welcome

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

Alun - INVINCIBLE!!! Good road bike miles and lots of problems. 69kgs sounds light to me, good effort.
hms - Has been CRUSHING the grit into little itty bitty bits. Well done on V3s and V4s!
mbh - 58 miles, the running machine returneth. Is the foot now fixed?
JimmyKay - Massive amounts of core work there. Had a good week on the grit.
mattrm - srsly? weak...
mrchewy - Indoor slab grades are weird, I agree. Maybe most route setters don't climb slabs? Also it's hard to mimic slabs on plywood. Keep up the falling practice, it'll help in the long run.
IainRUK - Like the number, 101. Nice.
Luke Owens - Firestarter is a f7A right? Congrats. Good luck on the 7c.
Nick Russell - Sorry? You soloed Riders on the Storm? Can you fit your balls into your trousers? Excellent bag of routes at Pembroke. If you don't like the 7b, no point pushing it just to get the tick. Got to like the route.
Ally - If you want Fisheye, then keep on working it, in my fat punter view. Don't compromise, just to get an easy tick. 8c is never going to be easy is it? There's a great article by Neil Gresham about climbing 8c in this month's Climber, maybe worth a read.
grubes - Worth making sure the bike is fitted ok for you. Slightly different foot positions can have a big difference.
ppg - Had wondered where you were the other week. Sounds like a nice holiday.
Humperdink - 75 miles? Can't process that to be honest. Well done. 15:32 for 5k? Mental... I'd be super happy with 24 mins tbh...
Tubb93 - Hope you're crushing Kaly.
Ali - Nice to meet you the other day. You made the rest of us at the crag look pretty crap. Well done on the 7a. Hope the orienteering went well.
AndrewW - Keep up with the training, it'll come good eventually, I'm sure.
Nomics4sale - I think 7a will always be hard. Unless you're Ally. Getting a wide range of 7as under your belt will be a good base for future crushage, so there's no great harm in enjoying the plateau for a while.
Exile - Lots of mtbing at North Wales trail centers with the family, sounds nice.
