Most of the time you focus on climbing, so you want to get stronger. But who wants to become stronger, should work on numerous other construction sites. One of them: flexibility in shoulders and wrists.
A guest contribution by Christoph Völker from target10a
This article is not about how to actively improve climbing and bouldering, but rather about investing in the future: being mobile, mobile and therefore healthy!
So I want to introduce you here to a flexibility training, as I regularly do (should do!), In order to maintain the mobility over time in certain parts of the body.
"I mainly focus on the shoulders and wrists."
For lower body flexibility, which actively helps to better climb and boulder, I do a different workout several times a week.
You should do the stretching program once a week
But I should do this Dehn-program now at least once a week. I can get by for three months without such training, but eventually I will have to pay the price and there will be problems in the shoulder, wrist or elsewhere.
"Of course, this program is not the only insurance against problems."
Ideally, the flexibility exercises are combined with extensive weekly athletics, body tension and stabilization training. So you also have some antagonist or balancing exercises to protect yourself from injuries.
In the following video you can see a unit of agility, as I perform each. Each of these exercises I think for about 40 to 60 seconds.
