I've been lifting a lot lately, for those of you who not only climb but also lift, do you find it beneficial to not only aim for 12 reps at the highest weight possible, but also drop the weight significantly and aim for as many reps as possible? I was told this will help work on my muscle endurance and allow me to get in more climbs and flash more routes with having to stop due to fatigue.

As far as diet goes, I'm more wondering about the affects of taking protein supplements such as whey after climbing, and if there is anything other than time that will aid in the recovery of tendons

Cool

Sweet, totally agree with JL. HIgh reps, every muscle group, you don't want to put on much mass! Also the less you weigh the less muscle you need to climb hard and prevent injury.

I took the WFH and put it into an excell spreadsheet to help trach progress and record weight used for workouts. Might help some. I like it, it helps me stay on track and track my progress with workouts. I particularly like this workout. I'll let ya know in a couple months how it worked out for me.
