Wondering what type of climbing this would be considered. Basically traversing horizontally, diagnally, on very hard boulder problems. One after the other with no rest. Its all highball problems as well. Is there a specific name for this climbing or will I have to make one up?
Toasted Tendons is the only thing I could come up with.

I think that is commonly referred to as "traversing horizontally or diagonally on hard, highball boulder problems with little rest."

Kinda like circuit training, but not as beneficial as going upwards.

Circuit training but not stopping for at least 2 hours, just resting on top. Doing v10s the whole time...

I'm confused. I always figured if I wasn't climbing, I was resting. I climb so slow sometimes that even when I am climbing, I'm resting.

What you're doing is called doing laps.

Hey! I live in Caracas, Venezuela, and here we have the biggest horizontal boulder wall! Its 245 meters long, and has incredible boulder problems! People normally do it wearing CamelBaks, to stay hydrated! Its a huge physical challenge, and a lot of fun here!

Us locals call it "Travesia" and that name has been around for a long time, so i guess thats how you call that kind of climbing! Its a little hard to translate to english, because it has many meanings, so i guess you'll have to stick to the spanish name! haha
