Improving Overall Fitness for Climbing

This week, in our sixth mini episode of Ask Kris, we talked about how to improve overall fitness for climbing. I was actually a little bit confused about what "fitness" really meant, and Kris helped me understand what it is and how to gain more of it. 

Here's what we talked about:

  • What fitness actually is
  • Specific workouts you should do to train fitness
  • How I should train for my long-ass route project
  • Who needs fitness? 
  • How a workout that has no climbing in it can improve your climbing fitness

Train Your Fitness with Kris's Programs

All of the programs that Kris wrote for have a focus on overall fitness. He's a big advocate for creating great all-around athletes because he believes that strong people make strong climbers. 

If you want 3 complete workouts every week to get you stronger and help you stay injury free, check out our bouldering training program or our route training program.
