Practice Skills When You Are Fresh

Went climbing tonight, just wasn’t quite 100%. I assume I had some residual tiredness from sandbags yesterday. I kept working over a few bouldering routes. Got some good tips from some climbers, worked flagging heavily. Saw a couple guys that were real expert with it, guys that were climbing what I was climbing but only using every other hold. Proof there is always good work there. I definitly have to improve my core strength. Core and a little hand endurance, that will come on it’s own, will help. Any other workouts I do are for me.
May try to squeeze in some grip in a bit. I’ll post later or tomorrow on that.

Oh and bought some shoes. They are used shoes from the rental selection of the gym. They are tore up but they were $10, that’s rental for two trips. So if they last three trips, which I believe they will, I’m good. Plus, I just like the idea of brining my own shoes.

Also, I want some kind of pull up arrangment at home to work on. Most doorway bars won’t hold me. I don’t feel like puttin massive holes in the walls. A tower is probably not reasonable. I’ thinking about something like the tactical pull up bar but $450 seems high. Any thoughts? I do recall seeing some counter levered doorway bars that were sturdy. I’ll look for those later.]]>
