If you’ve got your sights set on a major outdoor project, there are many performance gains to be had by simply refining your approach to indoor board climbing.

Moon Climbing athlete, David Fitzgerald, shares his tips on how to maximise your performance for your hardest bouldering projects. Be prepared to say goodbye to those toe hooks, heel hooks and dropped knees...

The Training Plan

Find 10 problems at or near your limit.  The problems must meet the following criteria:

  • Be the same length and difficulty as your project
  • The crux must be in a similar place, or be of the same style as your project
  • Allows you to climb with a wide or open stance to help strengthen and stabalise your shoulders and hips.
  • It does not requre twisting, drop knees, toe hooks or heel hooks.

Practice the circuit until you can complete all ten problems with minimal rest.
