Why do people take it all so seriously -training and exercises and food and stuff -Where are all the people who are in it for "a nice day out"? Now I know there are some out there -there has to be.

I actually met a girl at Araps this xmas who had the same ideas -we has a lovely time climbing together. Did feel sorry for the guys who were waiting behind us though at times -they didn't seem to mind though they were happy to chill in the shade.

Here's to drinking tea/beer/coffee/having lunch going for a swim etc and maybe doing a climb later -if we get around to it if it's not to hot/cold/wet/windy.

I mean what would you talk about on this new training section? I mean how much do you wanna listen to how long people can hang on one finger for? who cares - you wanna get better at climbing go climb.

And shut the hell up when you are getting up at 6am some of us are trying to sleep!! (not purely just directed at Sol -but you could do with grinding your coffee the night before grrr))

If you were to the training section it -it would need nice diagrams i think there may be some aticles around and about on the subject on here too you might want to look at them x

sarah - actually it's about having a nice day out, and also challenging yourself. Do you think that people who climb hard don't have a nice day out? Reverse elitism. (btw i don't climb hard at all but I would like to climb harder. To climb harder I need to train).

I have been examining the forum layout and am concerned that there may not be enough space to accommodate the new Training section; I therefore propose we eliminate the Crag & Route Beta section.

If I was going to be living in Nati like you Sarah, I could climb on real rock every day and
I am sure my climbing would get better as you say... However, many of us live and work
a long way from the crag as you well know. A couple hours a day of intense structured
training can achieve similar gains. Thus, active discussion of climbing training good. If
you don't like reading and writing about how many sets of one finger hypergravity hangs I
am doing, don't read the training thread:)

Hint: The answer is zero.

The coffee grinder is an integral part of my warm up. Without it, I will be too injury
prone.

Regardless, Sarah, we are still waiting on your Tasi trip report.

It really is amazing how opinionated people are on topics that they have no interested in? This world is packed full of time wasters. Wasting the time of others who are trying to better the time they have.

It really is amazing how self-righteous the literal-minded can be. This world is packed full of
people who take themselves to seriously. Angry at others who don't share their clear view
of what is important in this world.

Who exactly are you having a go at here?

I'm sorry that your thread hasn't been inundated with dozens of replies from keen little trainers but there is no need to have a go at those that have replied, just because they don't share your enthusiasm for training.

Training is a pretty boring subject. It's up there with sport climbing trip reports. Take a look at the ''Technique and Training'
forum on rockclimbing.com. It's very informative, yet still provides maximum snooze value. You should check it out.

I think it would be quite apparent if Chockstone needed a sperate training forum - we would be getting threads about training all the time. We aren't. Simple really.

Not having a go at anyone. Just a general observation of this discussion.

I'm bored of training already, after 2 days of working out here I'm had it. Maybe its time to rest for a weekend session.

This is not the place for a training forum. This is a place for people who like "fluffing about like old tea ladies". (made me laugh anyway)

The only solution is to have a members-only training section - to join you need to be able to do three one armers each side :-)

Here's a training tip from Eduardo.

Find a pub that has somewhere where you can do chin ups. Go there after climbing and start drinking
stout. Whilst drinking stout start doing chin up pyramids. Continue until such time as you vomit. You'll
get hard and thin at the same time, whilst getting inebriated.

In my next installment, I will extoll the virtue of the 400 mg Ibuprofen aver the 200 mg variety.

Eduardo you've got it all wrong. You talk about climbing late in the week. Drink beer and talk about climbing all weekend and go back to work looking utterly rooted on monday and tell people you're too tired and don't want to talk about it.

That's cos it's boring. If you've got 2 days to spare go bloody climbing - As egosan says he trains cos he can't get on rock.

Gordoste - I agree about challenging yourself - did I tell you I led my first 15? I have no issue with challenging yourself - just the fingerboard rubbish that i find dull (and if i could do it i'm sure i'd be more keen.)

I fell off the shelves in our upstairs landing 3 times on tuesday (grade 20 move??) while trying to change the battery in the smoke alarm - that sure as hell was challenging. - I ended up getting a chair to stand on - did it first time then!

WWW I was looking at lower taipan wall in the guide last night (Sol and i are going to Mt. Stapleton soon) There's a grade 10 or 14 or something - that sounded out - we could go have a bash at that?

As for my tasi TR - I held a baby wombat (so cute) stroked a tasmania devil - went diving, went sea kayaking did the whole wine glass bay thing, went for gentle jog along the bay of fires and richardson's beach,sunbathed (and did a few climbs) - I mentioned my 1st grade 15 lead! -antagonist at lassie wall -if anyone is interested... I also got stung by a jellyfish! - fortunately it was a dying jelly and only hurt for a little while - and no no-one had to pee on me!! Oh I also did some extreme hammocking -now that was scary. x

I don't train because I think its cheating.

I don't train because I'm lazy.

I don't train due to the magnificant and beautiful influence beer has on my life.

I would find it incredibly interesting to hear peoples training habbits having invested a lot at times for little gain.

Sarah the reason to train is that it gives you access to territory you could never touch otherwise.

I have a fingerboard that I hang off a few times a week when I'm bored.

I like to go bouldering.

I occasionaly do a few push ups and a sit up.

I have a pair of dumbells that I sometimes pick up and move to somewhere else in my house.

That is my full training regime. If anyone has any questions or needs some tips let me know.

As Malcolm is living evidence that housebuilding is the best cross training around, I am freely offering my house for training purposes to anyone so inclined.

Do you also have a Torana that needs a rebuild?
