Technique Improvement 5-Mar-2004 At 1:23:37 PM CJ
Would have to agree with the recent comments regarding Yoga, Pilates, Swiss Ball type work as an adjunct to improving technique in climbing. All these activities focus on the control / optimisation of posture and stability through the "core" (Gluts, Abs and Trunk regions). Given that climbing interfaces with its medium (Rock) at the extreme ends of the body, a stable connection between what feet and hands are doing is vital.
These activites also have the added advantage of improving strength and our connection with the rock without increasing muscle mass, (adaptation is principally gained through neural control), thus maintaining or improving strength / power to weight.
