A climb strong bectel thing. After a month of working on the road and being mostly too battered to train or not having facilities I probably logged 4)5 climbing sessions in the gym that month, maybe a halff dozen pull workouts.
Not much training or climbing at all.
This week I am back in SLC and having short see essio MN a qt SLBP.
First kettlebell protocol in over 6weeka, swings punctuated by ISO, more swings with heavier weight, heavier weight on the ISO and longer duration of sets and more reps, a coupla moves (curls) by a considerable ammount or the next bell up.
Imagine my surprise when I blew past my max hang on a 20mm lattice edge (10secs) for a new PB when I am probably heavier (not weighed m’sen in a month or so). Heavier weighted hang by 3% heavier full stop by 5-6lbs
Recognizing that sometimes max hangs & weight work requires the mind and body to be in sync and that night I was kinda on one it is still a huge surprise .
Couples with this I am climbing fucking well.
Lots to process and figure into the next block of training.
Any thoughts on this:question:
Specifically is my experience normal, average, median or left of centre I simply have no baseline for me or anybody.
What, if any, are your experiences with minimum effective dosage when working with weights or bells or max hangs❓
Note: I have become a puller from fixed objects on a frictious climbing handy tool thingy for about two/three months now and have seen gains in hanging and in overall ability to pull and grip hard
Note : last Saturday I pBed my pull from the floor offa jug at 210lbs which is only 28lba shy of my last PB with a max hang .
Nite: my general trend this past six months has been positively upward in pretty much all aspects of climbing. From the head game , the highballin’ the gym work and even the comp shennanigans.
Note: I have been heavily leaning into skills not strength for the past month or so
Appreciated all any any comments:grin:
