LET'S TRAIN, Ep.1 - Up-Climbing


The use of rubber band for climbing exercises is now a consuetude in climbing gym. These are fundamental for a correct preparation of big muscles of body and limbs.
It’s possible to identify two main moments in worm up:
GENERALE PHASE: whit a global work of entire body
SPECIFIC PHASE: whit increasing intensity exercises
The general phase can be subdivided into two further distinct moments: we can start with the top joint mobility exercises that involve most of the joints of the body, in our case, definitely: column and neck, shoulders, wrists, hips, ankles. Then there can be a short work of dynamic activation type with jumps ropes, running etc…this first phase can be very varied and we can draw on many different disciplines.
The second phase generally involves activation of the large muscles such as back, chest, triceps, biceps, deltoids, etc. .. the purpose of the video is just to highlight some simple exercises that you can safely repeat to your account , with the use of an elastic medium-low resistance and having available a fixed point where to place it.
A good worming up provides the completion of 2 or 3 repetitions of 12 exercises, with a micro-pause between one and the other.
