Oh, and more hangboard speculations for Lena, even though I already posted in the training forum:

I would probably encourage you to do the periodization thing, rather than try to mix and match hangboarding in with the rest of your training this winter.

First off, because yore in Cleveland, and certainly there will be a month somewhere that you are not planning on climbing at all outside. So, you may as well devote all that time to getting fingers of steel.

Second, because the biggest thing that climbers lose during hangboard periods is explosive power, and really, you are not a super explosive climber right now, so you don't have a lot of power to lose! Want to build power? Get on a campus board. Want to get on a campus board without hurting your fingers? Do a hangboard cycle first. See how this works? Seriously, I think that if you really want to improve teh quickest, a month dedicated solely to the hangbored would be the best beta for you.

Oh, and you should take your question over to mountainproject; there are way more training folks over there. Though, don't pay attention to anything a guy named "Slim" will chime in with. He is obsessed with training and will talk like a big expert, but I've heard from several folks that he's been stuck at 12a toproping for like his entire life.

So on the weekend Nathan built me a larger training wall in my apartment. One wall is 7 degrees over hanging and meant for a bunch of drytool training, the other side is 45 degees and I'm looking to buy (or have Nathan make) me some HIT strips.

Best part of all this is that I also got a tree house. Yes, the wall took over half my living room, but there's a super cozy nook for chillaxing in. I still need to outfit it with pillows and blankets though.

He probably feels bad for us, too. Since we can't all be 15c, err, 9b+ climbers.

I replanted the garden for the Sandoradiego winter crop. Gots me some spinach, broccoli, beets, and cabbage to go along with my still-kicking-ass kale, onion, peppers, tomato, herbs, and eggplant.


Also, prepping for the sokak ice season - which unfortunately involves much driving.

We could get a little into compost tawk.

To the worm composters, you you throw all your food on the top or do you bury it? I'm finding the bedding a little gross to do the burying thing, but it will keep things easier to maintain in the long run?

Yeah. It is doubtful that there will be much ice up, as we've had a bit of a sparse year.

Our worms died the first few times. Now we just leave the compost outside and let it turn into a frozen mush.

My population seems healthy but there are starting to be enough fruit flies that they're getting irritating.

I'm cutting back on the feeding for the next couple of weeks.

LOL. I AM doing periodisation. It is more of me trying to answer the questions for people who see me doing the hangboard stuff and want to know about it ,and then turn around and say, oh, yeah, I'll do this with you, totally, how about next week on Tuesday after I climb for couple hours first? I've been passing out Manderson's article to anyone who is interested. :) I got one lady who wants to do it with me regularly, and I am hoping that it would help, b/c heck it is BORING!

And yes, the plan is to do hangboard until late Jaunary (there will be an unavoidable break for a week for the holidays), then ~3 weeks of campusing.

And yes, I am doing warm-up by 20 min of ARC traversing before every hangboard session (which right now I plan to do 3x a week, unless I am gone for the weekend, in which case it would be 2x/week that week), and doing high-volume lower intensity toprope climbing at least once a week for couple hours, on a day when I am not doing hangboard.

And yes, I do need weight subtraction on some holds. Hopefully not for very long. I have the pulley set up now, and it works great.

I did a session yesterday 5 grips, 6 sets on each. On large slopers I needed to subtract 5 lb after two sets, otherwise I was getting sloppy and felt that my wrists and shoulders were hurting and on really small crimps I subtracted 20, bc I couldn't hang on them for a set of 6 when I tried earlier last week.

Two other holds-- bigger crimpers and smaller slompers I did without weight, and on pinches I actually added 5 lb.

Oh, a bit more unsolicited advice-- most folks I've talked to agree that slopers are pretty useless to train on hangboreds. Can't remember why, though. I only use slopers for warmup/cooldowns.

And as for the plan of going until January, be aware that you will very likely hit a peak around 4-5 weeks in. It will be super obvious; you'll be plugging along, adding weight, improving quickly with each session, and then all the sudden, BOOM, no more improvement. After this point, you will not be making any more gains on the hangboard, and you should just move onto campusing. When I did my first cycle last year, I planned for 6 weeks of hangboreding, because, hey, I'm all rad like that, but barely 4 weeks into it I hit the peak. You just have to do what your body tells you to do.

this thread helped me a lot:

Hey CI ... you know where you can get alien trigger wires repaired? One of the wires on my red is broken.

Also been sitting on a broken trigger on a #3, but I assume I can get that fixed through BD. And it's less critical of a piece, since I have two of them and so does everybody else.

Fixing trigger wires on BD cams yoreself is no big thing. We picked up a trigger wire replacement kit some years ago with all the bits an pieces.

Don't know if the Aliens are more complicated though.
