This new edition includes expanded chapters on training technique, improving mental skills, and developing muscular strength and endurance. A new chapter on general conditioning leads into the seminal chapters on climbing-specific strength training and developing personalized training programs for maximal results. Dozens of stunning color photos depict the exercises and techniques, while the addition of many training-tip summary boxes makes for a quick review of key points.
Training for Climbing also includes chapters on the vital, yet often overlooked subjects of self-assessment, performance nutrition, accelerating recovery, and injury prevention—topics that have received scant or no coverage in other climbing books. Chapter after chapter this book is entertaining, ideal-packed, and inspirational. Read it, and you’ll see why tens-of-thousands of climbers in over 50 counties have made this their training guide of choice.
