Lattice assessments now available at Big Rock in Milton Keynes Press Release

Big Rock Climbing has joined the Lattice Training partner wall programme, with Lattice Board Assessments now available at Big Rock Bond in Bletchley Milton Keynes.

Data driven performance profiling & coaching for climbers.

Are you serious about taking your climbing to the next level? The Lattice Board is climbing's first dedicated performance analysis tool to be supported by a database of climbers' results and a robust analysis package. With the Lattice Board, your coach can complete a performance profiling test for you to collect objective performance data, process the results in Lattice's analysis software and then use this information to influence your future training direction.

"The Lattice board is by far the best tool I have used for both coaches and athletes alike, I would expect the Lattice Board to become the industry standard."
Steve McClure, UK's Top Climber

A Lattice assessment will tell you exactly what your current potential grade should be based on your assessment data and how you should focus your climbing in order to achieve your desired grade. The power behind the assessment is the data that Lattice has collected from over a thousand hours of assessments. Where other methods have to rely on intuition and gut feeling to provide you with feedback, Lattice has the depth of data to be able to use rigorous statistical techniques.

Taking an assessment.

During a Lattice assessment at Big Rock Climbing Centre, you will spend 2 hours with a Lattice Accredited coach who will observe your climbing and put you through Lattice's carefully designed testing protocol to measure:

  • Aerobic and anaerobic capacity.
  • Aerobic power (or power endurance).
  • Maximal grip strength.
  • Movement economy and climbing pace.
  • Climbing specific muscle function.

Your data will then be securely sent to Lattice so that your performance can be analysed against the huge database of existing Lattice assessments.

Once your data has been processed (this takes ~1 week), your Lattice accredited coach will then combine your objective performance measures with their personal assessment of your climbing to provide you with in-depth, personalised feedback about your climbing performance.

At the end of the process, you will have the information required to optimise your climbing.

Assessments can be booked online on the Big Rock website or you can use our contact form if you want to chat to one of our accredited coaches before making a booking.

Check out this series of Lattice Training skills videos which explains their testing process and the exercises they recommend.
