    My forearms expanded exponentially when I began bouldering.

    I work in a climbing gym with an attached gym, free climbing, free gym, discounts on equipment and cafe items. My gains are essentially free.

      If they’re so free where are they then?

        I’m a climber not a body builder. But I can do 1/2/3/4 and pull up ~105% body weight (as in me 70kg + 75kg attached) so cope and seethe.

          He didn't deserve a response. Your stats are impressive and I've seen maybe one climber ever that you don't mog.

      train shoulder rotation muscles, cuban press is based, even better when you do it lying down

        Doesn’t this internally rotate your shoulders like crazy?

      Practice static climbing on easier routes.
      The more control you have with holds in reach, the more control you have when reaching.

    Dont fall for the bouldering meme. After doing it for alittle while it gave me the worst wrist pain in my right hand to the point where i cant even do a push up without a wrist brace.

    i drove by a bouldering place in the city and looked in and the people in there didnt look very desirable. a couple girls walked out while i was at a light and they were 5/10 at best.

    basically you should probably check a few climbing gyms out and see which ones have the highest grade women

    When you are adding additional strength training or calisthenics, do you add a day to your routine or do you just add before/after each day you already do?

      I personally do forearms straight after a climbing session and biceps, shoulders and lats separately in a gym session

      I try to climb on chest day and rest day, but it doesn't always work out perfectly that way. Turns out, if you're already an intermediate level weight lifter, climbing isn't much of a workout for anything but forearms. Just don't climb more than 2-3 times per week starting out because you'll get tendonitis.

      I climb with gym as the accessory and I do
      Push Climb
      Pull + forearm bicep
      Legs + climb
      Push climb
      Pull + forearm tricep

      And I always do facepulls when I gym because climbers who don’t do antagonistic training are all hunch backed like crazy. The best climber in my gym is some 40 year old that never understood the importance of balance so he looks like mr burns/ the Nazgûl from the 1978 Lotr rotoscope movie when they’re on the road hiding under the tree

      i have 2 intense full body lifting sessions then 1 more focused on function, accesories and mobility a week and then i climb 2-3 times a week.
      you can climb and gym as much as you want to the point that you can recover, also i dont climb and gym on the same day.
      lastly, making yourself a gym training program that at least takes climbing performance into account is great, would reccomend
