Stay Home Stay Sendy

April 15, 2019

Here are some home training tips to keep you tip top ready!

don’t rely on take out burgers and fries every night.

-Focus on general fitness and health!  Don’t get too crazy with the Netflix binging and baking.  Hop on the ground and do a quick HIT workout. Mountain climbers, skates, ski jumps, push up and bicycles are great bodyweight exercises to get your heart rate up. Make smoothies and other healthy food options; don’t rely on take out burgers and fries every night.  Hydrate with water, don’t just drink that pot of coffee sitting in your kitchen all day long!

Yoga with Adrienne is a fun place to start

-Yoga!  Now is the time to try it since you can dedicate a solid three weeks to starting a new routine.  Plus, you can do it in the privacy of your own home where it’s okay if you accidentally fart.  Yoga with Adrienne is a fun place to start, and she even has a video specifically for climbers. CHECK IT OUT

Make sure to start out light to prevent the on set of tendinitis.    

-Use that hang board and pull up bar that’s been idly collecting dust in your doorway as an extra coat hanger.  Make sure to start out light to prevent the on set of tendinitis.    

Get creative and use your pets or babies as training weights!

-Tag your friends in the instagram challenges to stay accountable! #see10send10 #see20send20 ... pull ups, push-ups, squats…  Get creative and use your pets or babies as training weights!

-Check out the Crimpd App! A great tool, FREE and brought to you by climbers. Track your progress, and use the videos for demonstrations on all the exercises, focusing on core, antagonist workouts, flexibility…

-Do some climbing related reading for education and entertainment! No worries if the bookstores are closed … use that kindle you bought for road trips.  Here are a few that we recommend:

Reel Rock - Honest Review

Spoilers may be below - you’ve been warned! Reel Rock has been worked into my yearly film watching routine, and the last several years, I’ve felt a little let down. As I’ve aged and seen climbing film after climbing film, I’m looking for the storytelling, not just the epic drone imagery of the crazy hard send that relies on a mono pocket or razor sharp crimp.
