Here are some home training tips to keep you tip top ready!

don’t rely on take out burgers and fries every night.

-Focus on general fitness and health!  Don’t get too crazy with the Netflix binging and baking.  Hop on the ground and do a quick HIT workout. Mountain climbers, skates, ski jumps, push up and bicycles are great bodyweight exercises to get your heart rate up. Make smoothies and other healthy food options; don’t rely on take out burgers and fries every night.  Hydrate with water, don’t just drink that pot of coffee sitting in your kitchen all day long!

Yoga with Adrienne is a fun place to start

-Yoga!  Now is the time to try it since you can dedicate a solid three weeks to starting a new routine.  Plus, you can do it in the privacy of your own home where it’s okay if you accidentally fart.  Yoga with Adrienne is a fun place to start, and she even has a video specifically for climbers. CHECK IT OUT

Make sure to start out light to prevent the on set of tendinitis.    

-Use that hang board and pull up bar that’s been idly collecting dust in your doorway as an extra coat hanger.  Make sure to start out light to prevent the on set of tendinitis.    

Get creative and use your pets or babies as training weights!

-Tag your friends in the instagram challenges to stay accountable! #see10send10 #see20send20 ... pull ups, push-ups, squats…  Get creative and use your pets or babies as training weights!

-Check out the Crimpd App! A great tool, FREE and brought to you by climbers. Track your progress, and use the videos for demonstrations on all the exercises, focusing on core, antagonist workouts, flexibility…

-Do some climbing related reading for education and entertainment! No worries if the bookstores are closed … use that kindle you bought for road trips.  Here are a few that we recommend:

Parties & Events Affected by Coronavirus Crisis

We have all been adjusting to working remotely, transitioning to online classes and starting homeschooling. We’re scheduling “visits” with family via Zoom and having “live” wine tastings and dance parties. Unfortunately, some things aren’t as adaptable to an internet platform, like climbing birthday parties.

Stay Home Stay Sendy

Social distancing and self-quarantine are what is on everyone’s mind right now.... and yes, that may mean not only avoiding the gyms with their closures, but your favorite destination crags as well. Traveling and using resources outside of your local community can have high consequences during the COVID 19 pandemic. Many climbing destinations have limited medical services and one or two smaller amenity stores. Let's all consider the health and well beings of our climbing communities and the small towns that support our passions year round. Stay home to train, the rocks will be there when we get back!
