You find you are not progressing enough? Have you stagnated in your level? Do not worry, we’ve all been there. Here are 10 tips to take the bull by the horns and make progress in climbing!
How to progress in climbing?
Warning, this simple advice. Not a shortcut to success.
Climb more often
It seems logical and essential but it is true, and that in all sporting disciplines to progress you have to train (and thus climb).
If you climb once a week, you will definitely end up stagnating at some point, or at least, you will progress much slower than others who train 3 or 4 times a week. I’d advise you to increase your training frequency (3x per week seems a good rhythm to progress without to much physical strain).
Some will tell you they climb for fun..
In my case, a successful wall climb on which we spent several sessions gives us a real sense of fun and extra motivation. That would mean, logically, we have made progress (at least on the block in question).
Climb several times a week OK, but how long and how?
More sessions will be your intense (motivation, adrenaline, physical effort, time) the more it will be effective (provided you observe the days of rest).
The ideal would be to climb 1 to 2 hours with a few small breaks.
