HOW TO TRAIN FOR CLIMBING USING WEIGHTS

Updated: Sep 27

Naturally we think finger boards, climbing walls and endurance boards for climbing workouts. However by including weights into our training we can increase our performance by making us faster and stronger which in turn will make us better climbers. This blog is for those that find themselves in a weights gym environment and need some exercises to increase specific muscle groups for climbing whether Traditional, Sport or Bouldering.


Plate Flips -




Dumbbell Snatch-





Lat pull down- Weighted pull ups -




Farmers walks/ Overhead carries /single arm carries




Using some of the exercises above create a short but fairly challenging session. Have a think about how much rest you are going to have in between sets and reps. Also consider making it a weekly workout to maintain consistency and provide structure to your training.


Have Fun!
