While you were gymcelling for years just to hit a decent physique, climbers will achieve that it in a shorter time while having more fun and achieving better overall functionality.
Pic related is Youtuber Magnus Midtbo who makes videos about climbing. Just to mention a few, he can gripmog Larry Wheels, pullup mog Chris Heria, physique-mog natty bodybuilders and outwrestle serious athletes from the marines.
Add climbing to your routine.
But climbing is gay and not fun.
Show me more fit climbers and i will give It a try
Magnus is a manlet
Jimmy Webb is like 6'1 and ripped
height doesnt matter
What climbers never mention is that their hands get fucking shredded, and not in the good way
And yeah yeah I know >lifting for girls
but ask any woman and she will say mangled hands are an instant no
It does, shorter = lighter = easier in general, less weight to carry
Small hands and shorter fingers means more relative finger length for the same holds
Taller means you can trivialise some problems to be fair, but less finger for more weight is worse
I would say for endurance/outside climbing the shorter the better. Indoor though at least in my experience a lot of climbing walls will space out stuff for 6ft+ people
Height is the endless debate of climbing
The setters at my gym are a foot shorter than me, so some of their moves I can reach past, some are harder than intended trying to get my feet high enough
Magnus is like 175cm so he's not even short. An actual manlet in the real world is like 160cm. If you look at his video with Larry Wheels he's hardly even shorter and anyone outside of this shithole wouldn't even notice a height difference between them since it's like 5cm.
175cm is definitely short and a height where you will start to stand out more as "the short guy" as a man
The only ones that look good are autistic retards that do it everyday for years and years. Majority of non-professional climbers look like skinnyfat twinks.
My brother is a professional rock climber and doesn't have a body even close to this
post body then
rockclimbing is a sport for people who never had a sport and want a hobby to meet girls
No blood so I guess it's a prop.
Don’t gamble life or limb for a send. Imagine if this happened not at an indoor rock wall in a big city, but in a remote crag, exposed to the elements and far from evac.
I’ve always thought the gym was safe. I could fall from the top of the wall and be okay. I’d climbed for 7 years, I felt as though I was past the point of being able to get injured indoors.
I was very wrong.
I didn’t know how good (or bad) the finish hold was, because I didn’t see that part of the comp. I didn’t think to test the hold by jumping straight up and feeling it. I didn’t think to ask anyone.
I obviously didn’t commit either, because I reached with one hand instead of two. And I didn’t want to land face down, so I rotated to be face up. Feet first is generally the way to go.
But by the time I could rotate, I was already hitting the mat. There was no time to think more about the positioning. I didn’t plan, and also it’s very difficult to plan a fall like this because of the momentum.
I just knew I was one move away, and I wanted to take down this pretty cool finals problem. It would be the first time I’ve finished one. It seemed far less intense, technically. The fear factor, risk, & mental challenge however…
Hey, maybe it’s a comp finals problem for a reason(s)?
I am lucky that all the major arteries, veins, and nerves were preserved; it would be a different story otherwise. I am lucky there was no talus involvement, because that would get really complicated. I am lucky to have health insurance and a job that allows flexibility with working from home. I am lucky that the prognosis is good.
Now it’s nearly 7 weeks post-op, and I started PT two days ago. Doing well! Thanks much to parents. It’ll be a little bit before I can go back to any sort of activity, the wound isn’t even fully healed yet. But I’ll definitely see you all soon enough. Thank you for all the support and well-wishes, they’ve warmed my heart
I literally fell through a manhole cover carrying 30 kilos of firewood in my hand directly on a single foot and just sprained it, didn't even go to doctor just put ice and two weeks it's good as new
this guy fell on a mat and tore his leg clean off
what the fuck is he made from plasteline
How much do you squat and deadlift? Climbers don't train legs.
This is the sign of someone who never played sports or played outside as a kid and don't know how to fall. You know when someone falls face first in the ground because they lack the reflexes. It's not his fault though.
Give me a rugby ball and i'll run through 15 climbers
Enjoy your tendonitis.
the free climb that magnus was made to do was kind of funny
he has ZERO leg strength. he is not a complete athlete. climbing is not the sport for that.
wrestling a marine is not mogging. Soldiers don't really train martial arts seriously.
To mog a grunt you have to do things like ruck long distances with a heavy pack or long sessions of endurance exercises in extreme weather with very little protection and weeks worth of sleep deprivation.
Enduring suck and light psychological torture is their specialisation.
Obivously any pro athlete is physicaly more developted then any military grunt, because it's his job.
Here is your world's best climber, OP.
He's a genetic freak like Phelps.
Except Phelps is shredded. Terrible comparison.
Lots of rock climbing where I live.
Every climber is a weirdo hippie wannabe with BLM and rainbow stickers on their cars.
same, most guys are twigs while the women are skinnyfat, then they go to the local breweries to drink
I think someone in the last climbing thread nailed it on the head.
Climbers are the kids that want to get fit now, but never did a sport in school and don't want to be a "meat head" lifter. That pretty much only leaves stoners, hippies and drama kids. Maybe a few outdoors hikers.
Generally that means the crowd has a lot of long hair, granola eating types.
its not that deep lmfao
Touch rock, gymcel.
For some reason all the chuds and freaks in my school are at the climbing gym, I'd say 90% have the leftist physiognomy (some of my Chad friends also climb, but they are an anomaly)
personally all the climbers I know are 6ft+ and strong-jawed
Then post body and prove it to us OP. If it's so easy for rock climbers to look good you should be mogging us all and should have no reason to not post your body.
I climbed a few times a week for 2 years. It will make your arms and shoulders and upper body really strong and cut.
But it does nothing for your legs and you'll have to train those separately.
It doesn't even really train arms or shoulders, just finger strength.
The reason i climb is that its the only exercise i actually find fun and motivating. Otherwise I would work out at all. Getting good gains from climbing + antagonist training though. More than good enough for ottermode
Not to shit on climbing cus its fun but its not that good for aesthetics. Sure magnus looks great but you also have to keep in mind he looks great because he is in the top .01% of climbers while the rest are skinny manlets. Realistically most people who get into climbing will look like sticks or stay fat.
climbing AS A SPORT makes anorexic men who intentionally neglect their legs.
climbing is an esport in real life, you're supposed to lift to supplement it.
Cardio? The true answer is mma

My dad was an ice climber when he was in college in Colorado. It's weird as fuck since besides this one phase of his life hes literally never been athletic or even particularly active he just had some random bout of fucking Ice pick climbing when he was 20
he did it to pull pussy and since you exist clearly it worked
Rock climbing is very easy to scale into an adventurous lifestyle where you're out with 4 hot chicks in a stuffy old van thinking about climbing dem "6b problems" lmao
If you like pussy just start climbing
What are some alternatives to climbing if I just don't have the body type and proportions for it?
> to hit a decent physique, climbers will achieve that it in a shorter time
Objectively and absolutely incorrect
The efficiency of results (in strength, hypertrophy, power) from pure resistance training is it’s main benefit, and also why most pro athletes do additional resistance training.
What is this climbing meme lately? Feels like everyone and their moms are climbing
