Hi guys, and Happy New Year to all!
After reading a few articles about how to recruit before lifting, I’ve tried to adapt this idea to my bouldering sessions, and I think it could be some sort of magic formula, given the results I’ve had so far.
I did just three session with some power recruitment before climbing, but on all three I either climbed my project, or made significant progress, like in my last session, in which I managed to stick a move that I’d been trying for nearly three years. It’s in this video:
sticking the move
Pretty happy as you can tell.
In these session my recruitment consisted of:
- one dumbbell complex;
- two barbell lifts repeated twice.
The complex was made of three excercises: lateral raise, bicep curl and military press, 5 movements each, performed explosively.
After some rest, the lifts were a snatch grip high pulls and a clean, both 5 movements, so 20 in total.
I’ve recently read about power recruitment with broad jumps, hence my question.
Do you think that it could be beneficial to include broad jumps in this recruitment routine?
Would you just add them or should I maybe do just one set of lifts? Or a single lift twice? I’m afraid just adding the jumps could be too much volume?
Moreover, do you think that it could be beneficial to perform two or three jumps right before the attempt on the project, that is during the climbing? Or should I just do them as recruitment before climbing and then no more?
Thank you very much for all the replies and advices.
