Hey hows it going? I have been climbing for little under a year and I was wondering how I can improve my climbing? Please tell me, because I would love to improve my climbing. Also, has anyone seen the movie Beyond Gravity? I did, and I must say, IT KICKED ASS!!! Hehe, chow all.

hey i dunno bout ure physical shape, but definately work on building muscle, but trying to keep ure weight down, so that ure strength:weight ratio is higher on strength, whenever you can, go bouldering, it works on power, and it helps build some of the balance muscles weights cant(unless you use freeweights) remember, you dont have to boulder at a popular rock climbing area, go anywhere that you can, it could even be manmade, like if ure house is made of stone, try traversing it, also work on grip, i have a gripmaster, it helps a whole lot, o and email me at vjck@hotmail.com and please tell me more about that movie Beyond Gravity

if you want to build up strength add weights. when i do pull ups or hangs i' strap a couple of pounds (via metal plates) onto my harness and do the routine

 like marksv said add weight. If ou can do 3 pullups with no weight then add some so you can only do 3. Do a set of 3 then take 2 minutes rest then do 3 more until you reach 4 cylces of rest to pullups.

i agree c_plante, climbing is the best method for training

henseforth, that is all i want to do, but unfortunately there are time and place restrictions

so... i like to climb around on the walls of my dorm room and do pull ups and hangs on door frames, you know, inbetween study sessions
