Maybe you need to look up the definition of qualified?
Honestly mate, stop digging - it's getting embarrassing.

Your weight and lifting abilities would help to give you advice on chest and tri workouts. Also skip all the squats and that shit. Instead kill two birds with one stone. Do a true nordic ski machine with the incline high, to develop your leg size and strength while also improving cardio and leg endurance.

Squats, when done properly, are one of the best exercises you can do. It works your entire body. It also gives you great core strength (balance 300 pounds on your shoulders?) which is very applicable to climbing.

It would be stupid of me not to do squats. Unless I had a bad back or a bad knee problem

Or unless you wanted to become a good rock climber.

Jay

Of course, we all know that if you report a higher level, you, by default, have superior training methods, regardless of the difference between onsight trad, and hangdog sport levels. Clearly, a hangdog sport .12a is "superior" to an onsight, old-school trad .11d. After all, the number is higher.

serpico climbs way harder than you, and (if I'm not mistaken) is a proponent of (some) strength training for rock climbers.

There is a necessary level of strength to pull harder. To utterly dismiss strength training is, IMO foolish.

Some strength training for some rock climbers, I think the majority of climbers don't have the time to prioritise the climbing and fit strength/conditioning sessions in - climbing must come first.
For me I like the idea of having my crag time completely devoted to quality movement and then working on the strength component later using weights, floor work, fingerboards, and system boards.
Using this approach I've upped my bouldering grade 2-3 grades over the last 2yrs, which at 41 and after nearly 20yrs of climbing is I think a reasonable improvement, and I think I've got at least another grade in me...

She's well educated in the field of sports performance enhancement, has been doing it for years (probably since you first spanked your monkey to the lingerie section of the Sear's Catalog,) keeps current on the scientific literature, and is capable of critical thinking.

Oh, and she can form a coherent thought, something you seem unable or unwilling to do.

A well educated man/woman realizes that nobody (himself/herself included) is an expert, but a student for life.

You seem to think the two are mutually exclusive.

There seems to be a lot of miss communication on this website. I didn't ask "How do I build my chest? How do I work my chest?"

I know 101 different chest workouts. I just wanted to hear from someone who climbs and lifts together. From what I have seen, people either lift or climb. Not both (unless they are not serious about one)

That has nothing to do with this thread. But I climb v5, 5.10 indoor. And that's probably lower than what I can climb seeing as gyms outside new york are much easier to climb in. I've been climbing for 5 months now
