Hi all,

Another noob here. I just started indoor training this past week and I'm really stoked on the experience. I've been scanning this forum for about a month now and I appreciate all the info I've gained from it thus far.

I'm trying to establish a good routine to start out with and build on. This week I alternated 3 days of light climbing and 2 days of cardio and light weight training. I plan on progressing to heavier climbing once I get more comfortable with my technique. Being new though, this involved a lot of me standing there and thinking of what to do next. Also I'm looking for some proper nutrition guidelines I could build meal plans from.

I'm looking around the web for training plans or information, but nothing is spelling it out for me, which is what I think I need.

Does anyone have any advice or book/blog/website recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

search the site, there is a lot of information on nutrition for climbing.

My trainer is always after me to eat more protein. Alas, I hate all forms of protein.

I think it's a lot of the ususal. All things in moderation. Limit processed junk. Eat food in it's purest form. Lots of vegetables, lean protein, fruit etc.

Just climb a lot, get outdoors as soon as possible, and listen to Gail.

That about covers it.
Cook all your own meals and get into super foods like blueberries, almonds, salmon, etc.

My trainer is all about protein too, so I do a protein shake with a bunch of fruit and peanut butter in it.

Good call! you're way ahead of the curve. JT512 had a good summation on this site. For some reason the first post got deleted, but he has an article here someplace. Maybe someone can post that link.
http://www.rockclimbing.com/...Muscle_Fiber_30.html

And the Admins put up a short article:

Or you can check his blog:

Without explanation, this statement is bizarre if not outright ludicrous.
Are you equating (and confusing) "protein" with exclusively animal products by any chance?

I am a vegetarian (for the last 44 years) bordering on vegan.

I do like nuts (but very high calorie), tofu (but try to avoid estrogen mimicking properties of soy), don't like beans etc.

So really, I don't like most vegetarian protein sources.

No need to focus on a training regimen and diet now. Just eat well and climb. At this point spending time on the wall and working on your technique will do much more for you than strength gains. Technique first. Unless your trying to lose weight through cardio, I wouldn't train muscles for atleast a year.
