    One thought on “Training for Climbing: The Definitive Guide to Improving Your Climbing Performance”

    1. This is by far the most helpful training book I have read for improving climbing performance and avoiding injury I really like his less is if you plan it well approach He also focuses on technique first because strength, power, and endurance will only get you so far The only drawback is that the narrative style makes the book a bit unwieldy as a reference in the gym A take out quick reference guide would be a nice addition As it is, it s a good idea to take notes, plan, and practice your workou [...]

    2. The book is very helpful I especially love how all the basic techniques are explained with so much insights Love it

    3. This book does a good job in helping you train and prepare your body for rock climbing I liked the practical information presented in such a straightforward way There is not much to say If you want a book to help condition your body look no further.

    4. 12 21 13 I actually started reading this in earnest today had just been browsing exercises in it up to this point because I m gonna be competing in the Gay Games next summer Woot And while I would ve guessed that my main climbing issue right now is lack of physical strength, I did the self assessment in chapter two and turns out that my biggest problems are lack of technical skills and lack of mental focus fortitude i.e I m still scared as shit to make big moves Oops Definitely got work to do be [...]

    5. Climbing is a sport that relies on balance and intelligence as much as strength The mental state of a climber will often make or break an ascent dramatically than the ability to do one arm pullups.Horst s book fills about a third of its pages describing visualization exercises that seem to come from Autogenetic therapy, Scientology, and other Mysticism This is not to be considered a bad thing as these techniques actually do work If you find yourself suddenly drawn to the Secret, you have gone t [...]

    6. Absolutely essential for the climber who is focused on performance Horst provides an excellent background on mental training, moving to exercise physiology and sport specific training, before diving into nutrition and recovery Well organized and well written.Edit I just read the second edition of this book Although there is some additional information, it is pretty much the same There is some focus on technique, but if you re interested in that, check out Self Coached Climber.

    7. An excellent and thorough overview of training for climbing This book would be useful for anyone looking to improve their climbing ability The primary takeaway for me is that at my current climbing grade I need to be focused on climbing mileage and working on specific technique exercises and less focused on climbing specific strength training I m already into my first 4 3 2 1 cycle and I am optimistic it will help me move beyond my current plateau and on to harder grades.

    8. Excellent climbing book, covering every aspect relevant to athlete mental, physical, technical, nutritional and recovering Eric J Horst blends his knowledge and experience on climbing in a unique, personal way that make Eric your perfect climbing mentor I absolutely suggest this book and I m looking forward to reading if his climbing series books.

    9. Do I need a climbing book I m a competitive climberd I readbut do I really need to be hanging off of Half Dome in my Portaledge, trying to ignore the whistle of the air beneath me, reading a book on.bing

    10. The detailed plans for training specific muscle groups and injury prevention were excellent It lacked in talking about technique at all , but that wasn t the point of the book It s definitely a bible type book to follow

    11. I liked the detailed explanations of the climbing techniques, but I missed advice on how to create a good training plan Also the writing style is sometimes a bit lengthy and could be to the point.

    12. excellent book for the climber ready to move up a grade in climbing The training cycles were well explained, with numerous exercises to choose from I have been putting the 4 3 2 1 cycle to use week 5 and already feel much stronger.

    13. Fantastic and the most comprehensive book on climbing It is like a reference book for me, I keep going through chapters every now and then.

    14. Good book, but beware This book focuses on strength training for climbing, not on teaching you how to move on rock or climbing technique.
