Imitate animals (skip the elephant, your trunk just wonít do it).

Do you think it would be ok to bark like a dog whilst climbing Laugh

As far as training, I have found aerial dance (a.k.a. aerial silks) to be quite effective for gaining core, leg and grip strength. Also cultivates fluid movement.

I've been doing aerial dance for just over a year, and just started rock climbing more actively since this year began.

This time last year, I would have had a lot more trouble climbing. Having better core / grip / leg strength is definitely a plus.

There are others in the same studio I take classes from that are rock climbers as well; the skills sets overlap quite a bit.

Climb on.

Nice thread, but could someone clarify this?

Doubtful.

I can't tell if you're being serious, and that shit makes no sense.

Or if you're being a prick, in which case I'd ask how many languages you speak?

*plonk*
you people seriously cant comprehend that statement?

My translation is
"To be a good climber, just climb.
To be a better climber, consciously think about how you climb"

Its not rocket doctoring folks.

Now, I didn't read the entire thread because there's so much to read but apologies if this has already been answered...

Is a fingerboard the same as a hangboard? I'm a beginner but I bought the Metolius simulator 3D at my local shop.. Is it actually bad to train on this as a beginner? I've always wanted a good pull-up/chin-up bar in my apartment but my door frames don't work for it.. so I bought it with the mind of using it for pull-ups while at the same time doing all the other recommended exercises to improve my core, grip, and all the other muscles that can improve my climbing.

2. Do I need a special strength training for climbing?
All in all, no. Though youíll get an advantage if your bodyís good in shape and you have a good core strength. Climbing itself is a perfect workout for the whole body, so climbing is the best training for climbing. Beginners tend to climb with much more force than needed. Working on your efficiency therefore leads to faster improvement than pumping your muscles. Watch women climbing! They are the masters of efficiency.
To prevent injuries due to imbalance of muscles itís recommended to do some push ups and train the finger openers as well as the back extensors.


Climbing is in no way shape or form the perfect exercise. Climbing is focused on back, upper abs, and arms. There are many injuries that come from over use in climbing. Shoulder injuries being tops on the list finger and extremity joint injuries as well. It has been commonly understood that in order to prevent injuries due to over use in climbing it is necessary to strengthen the antagonist muscles. That would be the muscles that do not get used much during climbing. Do some research. The stronger your antagonist muscles are the stronger you will be able to get you Climbing muscles without injury.

The Metolius Simulator 3D is a hangboard, and no it is not bad to train on this as a beginner. The important thing to remember is that the tendons and their support structure in your fingers is not going to be very strong and can be easily injured and take many years to develop, so you need to be careful.

Best way to use any hangboard as a beginner is to setup a pully system to remove weight so that you don't injure yourself. Pick up a copy of Rock Climbers Training Manual by Mike and Mark Anderson for more details, or check out their website.
