Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Highly entertaining, idea-packed and loaded with practical techniques and strategies, Training for Climbing presents a distillation of twenty-five years of experience and experimentation by accomplished veteran climber, renowned author, and performance coach Eric J. Horst.

Training for Climbing begins with a logical progression of self-analysis and goal setting, then takes an in-depth look at the vital mental and technical skills that separate the best from the rest. In three breakthrough chapters on sport-specific strength training, the author presents the principles of effective training, followed by dozens of exercises, as well as sample personalized training programs for climbers of all abilities. He concludes with expert advice on the often overlooked subjects of performance nutrition, accelerating recovery, and the prevention and treatment of climbing injuries.

Also inside: self-assessment test and corrective tips; mental training strategies; technique training drills; finger and forearm strengthening exercises; lock-off and power-building exercises; core muscle conditioning; power endurance training; strategies for accelerating recovery; performance nutrition; personal training plans for beginner, accomplished, and elite climbers; yearly training planner and much more.
