Vlog #2 How to make your own wood holds

Vlog #2 is published. We all think wooden hangboards are a no brainer. They are nice to use, they save your skin. They allow you to do more training. More folks are thinking the same about wood holds for the actual climbing. They are not a new invention of course! But this is the nature of history - old ideas get forgotten or go out of fashion and then get picked up again years later.

In this episode I go through how I make my own wood holds, why I think they are a good idea and solve some specific problems I have with training on climbing walls, and how I set endurance circuits with them.

Thanks for all the feedback so far on these vlogs. Glad to hear they are proving useful.

Vlog #1 How to train early or when you only have 10 mins

For a long time I’ve considered making a vlog as an additional form of media to share ideas for improving at climbing. Now its happening and here is episode 1. I’ll post all of them up here on this blog of course, or you can subscribe to my youtube channel as well to make sure you catch the following episodes.

In this one, I dive into how to make sure you are awake, alert and ready to train early if that is your window. And how to squeeze high quality training into a schedule so busy you can only spare ten minutes. Ten minutes. No excuses.
