as a foreigner, I'm still a bit confused with the following terms used in climbing : power, power-endurance, endurance...
In France, we use the words
= power or strength (short exercise, bouldering type)
- résistance longue
= endurance I suppose = use of the aerobic respiration for long exercises,
- résistance courte
, which might be what you call power-endurance, but not sure. Résistance courte
is the use of the anaerobic glycolysis system (with production of acid lactic). Typically one pitch overhangs with no rest.
, which is a kind of mix of endurance and ability to take useful/complete rests in hard routes, like overhangs with good rests (kneebars under tufas ; large pocket on which you can rest one arm after the other)...
If someone with enough scientific knowledge could add some meaningful definitions here : http://www.rockclimbing.com/...ictionary_528.html#p
, it would be great. Thank you.
