Rock Climbing Grip – The Best Strength Training Exercise For Rock Climbers to Ensure Their Hold!

Hanging on to a ledge takes a lot of effort. Not only does your rock climbing technique have to be spot on, but so does your strength training program. It is no secret that rock climbers have to have an iron grip. One of the best ways to develop your rock climbing grip is to include kettlebell training into your training equation!
To develop a superior rock climbing hold you have to include kettlebell farmer’s walks into your rock climbing grip exercises. This single exercise is a tremendous way for you to develop a bone crushing grip to ensure both your safety and the maintenance of your climbing strategy. 
To execute this lift you will need the availability of a pair of heavy kettlebells of equal weight. You will also need a set of climbing stairs. Start at the bottom of the stairs or bleachers. Try to use a set of stairs that are at least at a height equivalent to 3 stories. Squat down to pick up the bells and walk to the top of the stairway. You will notice that this particular drill will exert a tremendous amount of tension on your hands and forearms and get your heart rate up at the same time. Does this sound similar to the sensation of being on the side of a mountain? This is the perfect exercise to take your rock climbing grip training to a whole new level. This rock climbing grip exercise is second to nothing when you need to ensure your rock climbing safety.
If you haven’t taken the time to include kettlebell training into your strength program then you are putting yourself at risk my friend. Remember that anyone can train hard, but only the best train smart!
