General Conditioning

Whilst we have covered a more specific way to develop climbing muscles and energy systems. There are many muscles that are not climbing-specific and we need to exercise them to keep our bodies functional. Whilst generally condition does include isolating climbing muscles through weights, body weight or resistant exercises, it is just as important to focus on climbing antagonist muscles. These are the muscle that oppose the pulling forces we generally use when climbing and our bodies do not like inbalance.

As such general conditioning is more gym or circuit training based workouts that are targeted at either developing individual muscles we use climbing or developing generally all-round strength, especially in our antagonist’s muscles.
