Lattice Training: Testing Movement and Efficiency

In this video series, Tom Randall and Ollie Torr from Lattice will be working with a number of their climbers and taking them through a performance profiling test. This enables them to assess their strengths and weakness and ultimately work out what areas they need to focus on during training. These videos aim to give you the tools to assess your own strengths and weaknesses.

The series will then provide a whole host of exercises to improve strength, power, power endurance and general body conditioning. The objective is to give you ways in which you can train using a variety of training facilities, no matter where you are.

At the end of the series you should have the tools to assess yourself and then go away and carry out the training.

This video shows how to test movement and efficiency.
