Mental training via recruitment mindset

EDITORIAL

Friday, 24 September

As you start trying a new climb, you often get set down by not being able to do a certain move although it is within your grade level. The reason for this is mainly that you have not recruited your maximum finger- and general muscular coordination strength for the move. Until you have spent 15 minutes trying it, there is no need to be frustrated. Just keep a positive mindset and you will see that once you are fully recruited, you can do the move.

Of course, you also might need to go through the same process trying moves you have already done before. If the hard move is a steep open hand challenge and you lately have done more vertical climbing on crimpers, the crux might seem impossible in the beginning. Stay calm and think positive and with some 15 minutes of recruiting, you will do it again with that big smile.
