Wrist and Elbow Training for Climbers: Part 3 - Warm-Up and Projects

If you've learned anything from our prior 2 videos, we hope that it's the importance of training your wrist extensors to help prevent wrist and elbow injuries, and improve performance. We can take this a step further by applying these principles to your warm-up, and if need be, to your projects. Check out the video to find out how! 

Wrist and Elbow Training for Climbers: Part 2 - Hangboarding

If you're lazy like me, you'll want to know how you can train both your climbing muscles and your opposition muscles at the same time. You've come to the right place! We'll show you how to keep your opposition muscles engaged while training your principle gripping muscles on the hangboard. Have a look and share your thoughts!

Wrist and Elbow Training for Climbers - Part 1

In this series, we'll explore how to get our wrists and forearms strong so that we can avoid pesky wrist and elbow injuries, and improve performance on crimps, slopers and pinches. The first video explores wrist positioning in a farmer's carry. The principles we discuss here can be applied anytime you lift a weight off the ground. In our upcoming videos we'll discuss how you can apply this to other typical climbing exercises, like pull-ups and hangboarding. 

Have a look, share your thoughts, and spread the word!
