Training/Jens: In order to increase blood circulation, you should hang in the anchor and shake out before being lowered down. Otherwise, there is a risk that the downward hanging and relaxed forearm muscle will be pumped up/flooded with blood. This will decrease the circulation as it will be more difficult for the squeezed capillaries/veins to return the blood. As you are climbing, the muscle contraction and the upward hanging arms make sure the forearms can not be flooded, unless you reach a no-hands rest. Instead, the problem is getting enough blood in your forearm muscle. The hanging onto the anchor technique is most important to use as you have been fighting hard with no good shake outs, limited supply of blood, like it often is indoors. This will reduce the resting time before you can go up there and fight and have fun again :-) How to improve endurance while climbing.
