How to easily become better at dynos?


Tuesday, 11 May

It is hard to transition from a static climber to a dynamic one. Your technical style is often set from the early days of your climbing and normally most climbers just become more static over the years. This means it is often very hard to start practicing dynos both physically as well as mentally.

The easy way around this is to start climbing easier routes faster indoors. Once you have done several hundred meters in this way, your brain and muscles will start to adapt and you will begin climbing more dynamically. This means that it will be easier to start practicing dynos.

Start each session indoors, after warming up, by doing some easier routes and bear this in mind whenever you train. Also ask your friends to remind you before and during your climb as it is very easy to go back to your normal static climbing routine. After some sessions, you will start surprising yourself climbing like the youngsters again.
