Présentation de l'éditeur

Rock climbing is one of the most physically challenging sports, testing strength, flexibility, and stamina. To improve in the sport, climbers must build and maintain each of these assets. Conditioning for Climbers is the first book to help climbers of all ages and experience design and follow their own comprehensive, personalized exercise program. Part I covers the basic principles of effective physical conditioning and provides the climber with tools for self-assessment and goal-setting. Part II covers general conditioning, including warm-up and flexibility exercises, entry-level strength training, weight-loss tips, and fifteen fabulous core-conditioning exercises. Part III opens up the rich area of climbing-specific exercises, and includes twenty effective exercises to target the all-important muscles of the fingers, arms, and upper torso, with strategies for developing strength, power, and endurance. There is also a chapter devoted to a subject that is overlooked in most exercise books: training the antagonistic muscle groups that are so vital for maintaining muscle balance and lowering the risk of injury. Rounding out Part III is a chapter on stamina conditioning to increase your capacity to climb long days. The final section, Part IV, teaches how to assemble a comprehensive training program. Based on the results of the reader's self-assessment, this section guides the climber in selecting and combining exercises from throughout the book to create a weekly conditioning program. Workout schedules are provided for beginner, intermediate, and advanced ability levels. There are also special tips for youth, women, and over-fifty climbers, and information on performance nutrition, the benefits of taking planned breaks from climbing, and the secrets of reducing the frequency and severity of injuries.

Conditioning for Climbers 13 juin 2008
Par Thomas H. Stocker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Eric Horst's book, Conditioning for Climbers, is a winner. As an almost 61 year old climber, I can truly appreciate its comments about warming up, stretching, etc.

I have been active my entire adult life with bicycle racing, running, Colorado peak bagging, weight lifting, and rock climbing. I have read dozens of books on training from the basic physiology of training to sport specific. Until now, every sport, except rock climbing, has sport specific literature. With Conditioning for Climbers, rock climbing now has a well written, well researched and well presented state-of-the-art book specific to conditioning for climbing.

Conditioning for Climbers 27 janvier 2011
Par Spider Monkey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Having read and been impressed by previous books by Eric Horst I thought it was worth giving `Conditioning For Climbers' a try and I have to say I am glad I did. It offers up comprehensive training techniques in a colourful and well laid out format. If you have read `Training for Climbing' or `Learning to Climb Indoors' then some of the information will seem repetitive, but if not then this gives you a detailed and sound training plan to improve overall climbing fitness and strength. A lot of the training outlined is based on sound scientific principles and gives you confidence in trying them out. This book covers Conditioning Principles and Self Assessment, General Conditioning, Climbing-Specific Conditioning, Conditioning Program, Performance Nutrition and Injury Prevention and appendices looking at muscle anatomy and training charts. This has extensive photos in colour that illustrate the exercises being shown, and plenty of graphs and charts to back up information in the text. Horst's writing style is very easy to read and makes what can be a dry topic fun and engaging. If you are serious about improving your climbing abilities then this is the book to head for.

The best conditioning book for climbing. 12 novembre 2013
Par Matthew J. Wufsus Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a comprehensive guide that I would recommend to anyone that wants to improve their climbing. The book has a lot of focus on injury prevention, sport specific conditioning (obviously), general conditioning, nutrition and training micro and macro cycles. I'm sure I missed something, but I can definitely tell you it has made me a better climber overall, after reading it sparingly.

Getting advice from other climbers at the gym and at the crag is good and much appreciated, but this book helps you find your weaknesses as a climber with a great self-assessment questionnaire, and outlines what you need to do to get better.

Good book 8 août 2011
Par R. Hildebrand - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I really liked this book. It helped guide my climbing conditioning. Actually, also bought the other book by the same author, about climbing better (I forget the title). I read that book all the way through, and that helped my climbing a lot. That book helps you on many other aspects than just physical to make you a better climber. The book being reviewed is more about the physical aspects, which I also like having so that I can see everything in detail.

Workouts are described and he explains roughly what you week should look like if you want to be a better climber. He also tailors it to all levels of climbers, and explains what each might be doing to train.

Author is very knowledgeable and he cites many scientific articles, which makes his books worth reading, i.e., this isn't just some random guy's opinion on how to climb better, this is proven research on the physical and mental practices that make you a better athlete and a better climber.

Essential for climbers 16 juin 2012
Par John Doe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Horst is prolific in this space and knows what he is talking about. This has some excellent tips for conditioning, especially in the area of injury prevention. I have worked many of the exercises listed within into my conditioning program with good results. The only caveat is that he tends to overemphasize sport-specificity to the point of making general conditioning seem under-important.

Particularly useful are the self-evaluation questionnaires, which can identify the particular area you need to train (and not just physical training, which is covered by this book, but also technical and mental training). While these self-evaluations are a part of all of Horst's books (including Training or Climbing, and How to Climb 5.12), the evaluations in this book are much more elaborate than those in any of the others. In spite of a lot of overlap with Training for Climbing and How to Climb 5.12, every climber should still have this book in his or her library.
