How to get a quick peak performance?


Sunday, 24 October

Possibly you are close on your project or plan to go on a trip within some weeks? How should you prepare yourself to be in your best shape? In general, the best piece of advice is to just reduce your training volume a bit and make sure you do not get pumped during your sessions. Focus on quality and instead of pushing hard in your sessions, work on your technical skill and take longer rests also during the sessions.

On the other hand, you can train your maximum power on the campus board pretty intense so your muscle fibres are fully recruited. However, just do a couple of moves each time and do not make long-dead hangs. It should be mentioned that campus sessions should only be done by adult experts that have been climbing for many years. For most, actually, the most productive training in the short run is to work on your flexibility for some sessions or why not just go for some yoga classes.

Taking some breaks from climbing and doing other things will get you more eager to climb and your muscles will be at their prime. Furthermore, make sure you eat and sleep well and you will feel like an athlete preparing for the Olympics. Then it is time to deliver :)
