FITNESS FOR CLIMBING

Welcome to CTT’s Fitness for Climbing series. Fitness for Climbing augments and balances the physical nature of climbing. These videos are intended to increase climbing strength, improve targeted areas, and prevent overtraining injuries. These exercises are used for both indoor and outdoor climbing fitness.

Similar to our Yoga & Stretching for Climbing series, some of these videos are ideal for days-on in your climbing regimen, while some videos are for days-off.

Check out CTT athlete Amelia Marcuson with the One-Arm Rock Ring Lock-Offs!

Be careful, and have fun.
