Many people ask me how often do I train. Here are the facts.My situation.
- I am married and have two young boys under the age of 3.
- I have a full time job as a high school science teacher at an alternative high school.
- I am sponsored by 4 great companies which require time and energy throughout the year at events, trade shows and whatever.
- My second job is as the head trainer at the Grand Junction Climbing Center.
- My third job consists of working with clients around the U.S. on remote climbing training programs.
- My wife works and loves to run competitively.
- My forth job consists of public speaking engagements around the U.S.
- Most of my days start at 4:30 or 5am and end around 8pm before I have any "my" time.
- I circuit train on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 5am for 45 minutes
- I Treadwall once a week for about 1 hour.
- I use a fingerboard, a systems board and a campus board once a week on Thursdays all together for about an hour.
- If the weather permits I get one day a weekend.
- Occasionally, I get both days a weekend.
- 3.5 hours a week
- 1 hour if no outdoor climbing
- 1 hour plus whatever can be done with 1 day of outdoor climbing.
With those few hours a week, I can maintain a high level of fitness and complete my projects in a reasonable amount of time. If I had more time to climb, I would complete them more quickly, but I really want to be the best husband and father that I can be, so it is all good!
Another great way to work your lock off strength.
Be sure to be on a jug and to try to center your self over your arm.
As you get even stronger you can try to not be centered over the middle of your body (off set).
