  • Great final wrap-up from the Petzl Roc Trip 2014, that started in Romania Sep 11.

  • The winter season is here and it is about to find some good training methods that can motivate you to get stronger. The most efficient training might be to doing pull ups, hanging under a table, like 30+ minutes a week based on a combination of how of Alex Megos and triple boulder world champion, Dima Sharafutdinov, train? Pull-ups under a table 50 - 400 repeats Hang under a table and make 5 - 8 very slow pull ups, supported by your legs. Never push max especially during warm-up. The advanced can use just the finger tips or open crimp, even just using one arm. You could also combine the pull ups with a lock off. Experiment with standing just one one foot or even just the toes in different angles to also get a good full body training. Guys with long arms could place a "bible" on top of the table or hang with the arms far apart. Each set should take 30 to maximum 60 seconds, for the advanced. So with 10 repeats, we are talking about 5 - 10 minutes of training that can be spread out during several hours. After just 10 sessions, which means 50 - 100 minutes of training under your table, you will feel a big improvement. Remember that Alex Megos, trains almost 50 % with non climbing exercises, with a great focus on body strength and that Dima Sharafutdinov, prepared by doing 10 - 20 000 hanging pull ups a month before he became boulder world champion for the first time, out of three, in 2007.
