Publisher Comments:

Updated, expanded, and redesigned, the second edition of Training for Climbing builds on the best-selling first edition of this breakthrough text. Eric J. Hörst continues his tradition of melding leading-edge sport science and his thirty-plus years of climbing and coaching experience to create a unique and compelling book packed with practical how-to and what-to-do information.

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, idea-packed, and inspirational. Read it, and you'll see why tens-of-thousands of climbers in over fifty countries have made this their training guide of choice.

Let Hörst's passion for climbing and his exploration of the boundaries of personal performance help you achieve your personal best.

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 and stamina conditioning; Strategies for accelerating recovery; Performance nutrition; Personal training plans for beginner, intermediate, and advanced climbers; Yearly training planner and more!
