It's funny how that thought can rationalize itself. With thunderstorms in Flagstaff, record highs in Idyllwild, a typical August in Las Vegas, and a lull in eBay sales I have been almost exclusively training in the gym.
As a mere mortal who has run the gamut of emotions when it comes to gym climbing I find that I can get the most out of my workout with a rough outline. Previously I have just mentally prepared, however as workouts get more complex (and as an experiment in posterity) I have turned to a notebook.
Nothing pictured below is new. I have gleaned everything from stronger climbers, magazines, or others blogs that seem to know what they're talking about, and tweaked these routines to be either easier or more difficult. So as an act of paying it forward hopefully this will give someone a fresh workout to up the general psych.*
*As a side note I have been making use of the community pool and trying to swim 15-30 laps per day. I'm not sure if there is any science behind this, but the fluid resistance of the water seems to ameliorate climbing hot spots such as fingers, wrists and shoulders. Has anyone else experienced this?
