Ditto, I think the road is fine. Spending thousands on graveling, or tens of thousands on paving it are both luxuries, not necessities.

There used to be a collection box and some literature about the RRGCC at my climbing gym (in Michigan), but it disappeared a few years ago. Any idea why? Could there be posters and collection boxes with the gym's permission? Seems like this would be an effective way to reach new people, and stay at ...

I think overall performance was awesome. However, I'd like to see the marketing stepped up a bit, especially with the website. Red Rock Rendezvous has a year round website for info on their festival/event. Rocktoberfest info wasn't available online until less than a month before the event, and well ...

I've noticed a discrepancy in the rest times that are recommended. Horst recommends rest equal or slightly longer than climbing time, but I've also read that resting for double your climbing is best. In powerlifting, the fewer reps you do (i.e. heavier weight) the longer you rest, and vice versa. It...

I spent years wrestling, fighting and powerlifting, resulting in my 5'11" 200lb. frame. I can cut down to 175 in about three weeks, but I feel so much weaker in general that it hurts my mental game while climbing. Honestly it never occurred to me that there was a "glass ceiling" for 200 pounders. I ...

I press "my own personal pause button". Then, I picture Tony Horton, and he says "5,4,3,2,1, get it up!". Then I do a few moves and I fall.

Do your best and forget the rest.

also something to consider: while it may be your elbow straightening, perhaps finger/shoulder strength are also playing a hand. i've had discussions lately with fellow climbers who suffered injuries in say, their elbow, only to discover that this was actually caused by underdeveloped muscles elsewh...

training regimen

I watched an " Ironman triathlon world championships" marathon on new years day. They played the programs from the 2001 through 2009 races all day, and I found it very inspiring. At the same time though, it made me realize that my training regimen is WEAK. Not just the pro's, but everyday people ded...

treadwall training

Based on what I've read in some other threads on here, more than a few regular users have treadwalls. I have an old Entreprises model from the '90's that tilts to 45 deg. Just wondering what sort of workouts people find most effective on these machines, other than just climbing as long as you can. I...
