The Competition Season has Arrived - Hans Christian Montenegro

The Competition Season has Arrived - Hans Christian Montenegro
November 29, 2012 - 

The competition season has arrived. I have decided to do five competitions. The first one was in Montreal at the gym Allez Up. There was a large number of participants. I think it was the biggest competition in the last two years or even more. In the open category there were 102 competitors. This is a huge number and the gym Allez Up managed it with no trouble. I saw some climber friends from Toronto, kingston and Ottawa. It is always nice to spend time with your friends while you climb.The competition had 60 problems for the qualifying round....

Its been a hard journey and it's still not over....

Specific Training 2012 - Hans Christian Montenegro

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...
