6 Non-Climbing Tips to Improve Your Climbing
Updated: Jun 13, 2019
Here's day two of my daily blogging. Today I'll be giving you ten non-climbing tips to help you improve a grade. These are tips that I've done personally and seen results from doing them.
1. Watch What You Eat
It's super important to watch your nutrition when you want to maximize your climbing performance. I'm not going to tell you what specific diet you should do, my philosophy is you need to watch and write down how much and exactly what you eat. This allows you to see how much you eat and know what you are putting in your body.
2. Get Sleep
Getting 7-9 hours of sleep is key to let your body recover. Make sure you set aside that much time to sleep if you are keen on improving your climbing and recovering quickly.
3. Take Rest Days
If you aren't taking rest days it's going to catch up with you for sure. You will feel it throughout your whole body if you don't rest. Make sure you have one day a week that you rest and let your body recover and build muscle.
4. Drink More Water Than You Think You Need
Most people think they drink enough water and end up short of how much water they should be drinking to help your body recover fast. Every person needs a different amount of water, I always aim for at least 70-110 ounces.
5. Take Your Mind Off Climbing
It really helps to take your mind off climbing once and awhile. It will help you get stoked when you get back on the wall. It can help to sometimes take a few hours off climbing.
6. Eat Protein Right After Your Session
Your body needs that protein after you have a hard climbing session and break down your muscles. So make sure to pack a nice turkey sandwich or have a protein bar after your session.
