The best strength training program for rock climbing must included kettlebell training. By now you may be familiar with the ancient kettlebell and understand that this is one strength and conditioning device that is no joke! This ancient style of training can be used to really enhance your indoor or outdoor rock climbing workout.
Kettlebell training is also a very dynamic form of training that involves the task of taming a weighted resistance through movement based exercises. This is why this particular style of training translates so well over to rock climbing. Kettlebell training is tremendous for helping you develop grip strength, pulling strength, core strength, hip power, and cardiovascular fitness. All of these are absolutely essential traits to have when you are hanging from the side of a rock or mountain my friend!
The base lift of the kettlebell is known as the double arm swing. This single lift involves you swinging the kettlebell from between your legs up to chest height. The bell is swung mimicking the movement of a pendulum. This single exercise involves the combined effort of hundreds of your muscles at once from a single lift. In order to swing the bell you must involve your hips, glutes, back, shoulders, and thighs. There is no major muscle group that is left untouched with this particular lift. With kettlebell training you can quickly forge a body for climbing and be ready to hit the toughest climbing terrain in no time.
If you haven’t included kettlebells into your climbing training then you are doing yourself a disservice. I will even challenge you by asking you to access the rest of my articles for free on the matter. Remember that anyone can train hard, but only the best train smart! Give it a try.
