While we have to train the finger, for arm, back, leg strength to accomplish this sport… You all focus on the reps, the weight, the form of such exercises. And compare the indoor gym tec you have preformed. In your search for your perfect body conformation. And while sweat, time, determination, and the motivation to get that conformation is impressive. I am one who is motivated to do the same. Appreciate and recognize you all for your diligence.
However this conversation is lacking!
Not much has been mentioned on The Biggest factor of all! You are all watching these absolute fearsome athletes do something you may not be able to accomplish. And actually criticizing them?! Wow Really?
The Biggest Factor :|“The Rock Worriers Way”
The mental grind to be so focused on your next hand hold. The next pitch. And the confidence in your partner … so you can take that next risk and still be in your comfort zone. It is this beautiful fluid motion, confident placement, commitment on the next move. Breathing. The push and Pull sometimes at the same time…HOLD>>>> then the next move… connect! Breath! If you have tried climbing you know what I am talking about right now. If not… Well act before you talk. This is not for every Tom DICK and Harry.
This sport is intense! To say the least! And the most fun, I personally have ever had! I can see that the two, Training and Mental focus are necessary. They go hand in hand. I Respect Both.
