The book is here


Stock of my book has arrived with us and we are dispatching it now. Hope you enjoy the read and it helps get you to the next level in your climbing!

Some of you commented on my last post asking how long copies take to arrive in the US. We dispatch by Royal Mail (via airmail if it’s outside the UK). Their estimations for delivery times are here. They quote within 3 working days for Europe and within 5 for the US. It’s always an estimation of course. We are dispatching same day right up to Christmas.

I'm trying to purchase this book and have it ship to the USA, but it seems that there is no place to specify this. Does it show up AFTER checkout? Thanks !

You don't need to specify anything different for overseas shipping. Your order will be shipped to the delivery address provided, wherever that is in the world! Orders up to £29.99 are £1.50 postage and any orders £30 or over are free, no matter where you live.

hi dave!
i want to know which is the ideal "decline"(i don't know if it's correct, i'm from brasil.. :)) for a home/diary traning wall in your opinion. 40º, 45º, 50º? thanks a lot!

Dave MacLeod said...

Hi Andre, I'm willing to bet that your improvement won't rest on the angle of the board within a range of 10 degrees! i'd just make it whatever gave you the most space. 45 degrees is good for sure, maybe it's the nicest balance of pros and cons. But it's splitting hairs.

thanks a lot dave!
and what do you think about campus!? i must be strong to practice that or i can do with big holds!? i don't know.. but, besides the wall, what do you think good for traning!? (now i can't.. but as soon as possible i'll buy your book for sure!)
that's it. thanks again and good climbs for you!!!

Dave MacLeod said...

Hi Andre, With campusing it's not so much about being strong - campus boards are for getting strong- the decision is more based around how much total volume of climbing you are doing. Most people are not doing enough climbing for the benefits of campusing to outweigh the drawbacks.

Besides the wall, the rock is even better. You shouldn't need anything else except for a set of specific exceptional cases.

All of this explained thoroughly in the book...

Hi Dave,
I finished reading your book yesterday and was impressed with it. The only thing i was suprised by was that a couple of times you suggest some fingerboarding on rest days. Have i got this right?

Cheers, i look forward to your next book.

Dave MacLeod said...

Hi Krank yes that right, so they are rest days from one type of activity, but rather than do nothing you can do something if your body is up to it. Not everyone will be able to manage this level of stimulus. But it's fine as long as you follow the advice on listening to the messages from the body to gauge whether you can absorb the training.

A great read! Lots of useful information here. One quick question if you dont mind. Regarding rest between sets of stregnth training. You recommend one minute where other authors only recommend 3 secs (for 7 sec hang). Just wondering if you could expand on this. Thanks again, Luke

Yay! I just ordered and am looking very forward to receiving this book. I abide by Jack Tackle's "1%" rule. Even if something helps you improve 1%, that's huge over time!
