What does “specific training” mean to me?

After two months of general training, I was too tired to start my specific training, so I took a week rest with small sessions of climbing. Then, I started my three weeks of specific training. What does “specific training” mean to me?

For me, there is one main objective of specific training. It is to transfer the strength gained in general training to your climbing. How do you do that? I think you cannot make a direct transfer. You have to pass the force gained into your climbing muscles before your brain can incorporate the new strength into your climbing level.  So, I did exercises for my biceps and my fingers on my fingerboard two times each week. Also, I continued to have climbing sessions.  

After this specific training, I just have to climb and have fun outdoors and in competitions.

This is a video to show what I described here.

Thanks for reading and watching!
