Rock Climbers Training Manual - Anderson Bros 15-Feb-2017 At 1:56:54 PM technogeekery
I bought Horst's book - finding it very interesting. Not as straightforward as RCTM, actually have to absorb and digest the material, then produce my own tailored program. Will take a while, but I'm enjoying the process. So far I have found out:

-Fortunately I have an excellent balance of strength, technique and mental requirements for climbing
-Unfortunately, while well balanced, they are all very weak
-Fortunately, the quickest and easiest gains are to be had on technique and mental aspects
-Unfortunately, I have worked hard for 30 years at ingraining poor technique and a huge array of rationalisations for being afraid / failing / not trying
-Fortunately the brain is plastic and capable of change, and Horst is here to help with my technique issues
-Unfortunately gravity was high last night and that causes brain and forearm solidification, so there was NO IMPROVEMENT in any aspect of my climbing, despite having read 5 chapters of the book and completed a self assessment.

I'm not sure this is working, but I'll give it another try tomorrow.
