Five Ten presents an interesting interview with the training buddies Shauna Coxsey and Leah Crane who have just returned from a training trip in California. They also bouldered in Joshua Tree for few days.
"Leah: “The purpose of the trip was to go on a two week training camp to solely focus on training in preparation for our upcoming 2017 Bouldering World Cup season. Being in dedicated training environment means there's no distractions. You're there to train. We chose America as the US has a very particular setting style at indoor gyms which we don't really get to experience in the UK and the hold selection is very different. Being in California also meant we could visit HQ in person, meet with the footwear designers and discuss future product, current product development and get an understanding of how things are run stateside.”
Shauna: “With just a few months to go until the start of the 2017 World Cup season training is in full swing. We were working on many different aspects and training twice a day on most days covering everything finger strength, upper body strength, core strength, leg strength, fitness both on and off the wall and also climbing hard boulders and making up climbs and jumps too.”
