Full Time Climbing Again in Your 40's - Michel Kleinjan

Full Time Climbing Again in Your 40's - Michel Kleinjan
August 08, 2012 -  Michel Kleinjan

My goal is not to achieve a gold medal at the games of 2020 when sport climbing perhaps is an Olympic sport. My goal is to climb better than I ever did. Concretely, this means 8a + rotpunkt and 7b + onsight. My dream continues, however. I had ever climbed was "God save the Queen 8a" in Fryer in Belgium in the autumn of 1993. In the years before and after I opened several sport climbing routes in Buoux, sect. DSF: Chrysalide 7b + (after the outbreak of a grip 8a), La Turbie, Periphérique Ouest, Monaco "Petit joueur s'abstenir”...

So much has been going on this summer it’s been hard to keep track of everything: Lots of comps, busy at work, and plenty of training and outdoor climbing.Most recently, I’ve been competing at the Summer Sweat Fests. This competition series is not sanctioned for CEC points, but competitors from across Ontario come out and have their shot at the title and big prize money. Aside from cash and bragging rights, this series serves as an excellent tool to practice my competition mentality. When the beach weather hits and the real rock becomes climbable it can be harder to...

Canadian summers are my favorite time to train. The hot weather can make it hard to have achieve a good grip on the granite at Val-David, and that can be discouraging. However, training in these conditions can actually be interesting! It's the ideal time to push yourself harder. Since your body is warmed up by the heat, the likelihood of injury is lower and the volume of muscles is increased by heat expansion, allowing for a greater effort. I like to do general training in the summers. I'm currently in my general cycle (2 months). I do 3...

Recently I've been training and training for the SCS 2012 Youth National Championships in Atlanta, Georgia at Stone Summit. I've learned a lot about myself, and gained much more confidence (which is key to competitions, and routes at the limit of my capabilities). I did my normal routines: Laps on 13's, circuits, bouldering intervals, endurance, endurance, and more endurance. I felt great, the best I ever had been, and right before the competition too. The competition itself didn't go as well I would have liked, but I'm not complaining; I've been getting both exponentially mentally and physically better this...

Loved doing this one - got back a couple of weeks ago from the RedBull MTB Academy with some of the best young talent in downhill racing, came away with a great mindset!For 2012 we have put together a core group of sponsors and people dedicated to bringing the best out me as an athlete - whether it's bike maintenance, image production, athlete preparation or just a little family love! With that small army and knowing I can rely on the knowledge base of the athlete team from my recent trip away - I feel I can confidently take...

For the last month we had very cold weather and snow. That's why I was doing only indoor trainings in gym. With my team ŠD LIFE, we were training with motocross riders, to get fit for up coming season. You can see a short edit of our trainings. Weather is getting better and I can ride some xc again. I can't wait to ride downhill bike too. Besides getting fit I have been busy with school, trying to pass as many exams as I can before the racing season.
