5 Ways to get better
Breathe deep. Can you smell the BBQ and fresh-cut grass wafting in the breeze? Summer is getting hotter and humid!
No worries, you haven’t missed your chance. There’s always time to train at Active Climbing. To get you going, here are a few quick tips you can use to be at your best inside and out.
1. Keep breathing!
(BBQs and fresh-cut grass, remember?)
Holding your breath while climbing is a favor to no one. By contrast, deep, full breaths keep your muscles happy, lower your heart rate, and practically guarantee better climbing.
2. Keep your arms straight!
( forearms getting pumped too fast?)
Well, that’s a common mistake most of us have when getting on the wall. The sooner you relax and keep your arms straight the better. Every time you bend your arms, imagine yourself on a pull-up bar. That froggy style kills everybody!
Read more tips, including the mental game, properly warming up, and few other techniques that will improve your climbing instantly.
*(Don’t worry, our doors are staying open if you want perma-shaded, instant-access climbing. You know our building used to be a huge freezer years ago, so it’s stays really cool here in the hooot summer days)
