Monday – Starting to dial back the training for the upcoming trips. 30min run in the arvo.
Tuesday – Fingerboard in the morning – 2 arm chis – tape on fingers but still pulled good weight – would’ve liked to do 7/53 but 3 taped fingers it wasn’t the best option as some of the grips are a bit too friction dependent. Limit boulder session in the evening. Finished off with some GT repeaters.
Wednesday – Core at lunch time then circuits with 6kg vest. Brutal. 3 probs x 4 – 5min rest. + GT repeaters to cook myself a little more.
Thursday – Rest day.
Friday – Failed 7/53 hang session. Super tuckered. Not feeling 100%. Also aborted evening circuit session to rest up.
Saturday – Arvo session at Elphinstone. Not feeling that good but still managed 3 pitches clean up to 31 (tiger vinyl)
Sunday – Late session at Elphinstone. Feeling a little better and conditions were mint. No fall day. Only 3 pitches due to time and not wanting to put myself in a hole for the coming weeks. Tiger Snatch, Tiger Cat and Bandula. Good session. Feel ready to spin the dial up 😉
On a side note – some slight issues with my left elbow/bicep. Will monitor closely. Might need to see a pro for some management tactics.
Monday – Core class and then an easy endurance workout (3 x 10 – 5min b/w)
Tuesday – 1 arm chisel fingerboard + crimp repeaters in the morning and circuits in the evening. Same 3 boulders but 5 times. Still 5min rest and + 5kg.
Wednesday – Rest day. In the city for work.
Thursday – 2 arm chisel fingerboard plus 3 reps of crimp repeaters to finish. Limit boulder in the evening at the Bowlo.
Friday – Strength at home in the morning then circuits in the evening. 32 moves x 5 – 5 min b/w +5kg. Skin sore. Tuckered.
Saturday – A slow morning waiting for the weather to clear. Quick warmup at the Bowlo then headed down the the Glen with Doug and Tom. Crag board warmup and then fired Moonshadow (hard 32, easy 33 🤷♂️) First go. Psyched. Was fun as the top was wet.
Sunday – Elphinstone with a good crew. Conditions were insane. Managed to send Beta Vinyl 33. Super happy as it is one of the harder rock routes I have done. It’s v9/10ish into a long 31. Super classic and happy to have it done. 4th day on.
Time to start cutting down on the volume and bumping up the intensity. Also playing around with some specific Groove Train hangboard repeaters…
Wednesday – A small boulder at the bowl (30min) then 2 x 60 moves with full recovery in-between.
Thursday – Rest day.
Friday – Super light warm up to keep the body awake 🙂
Saturday – NSW States. Super happy with the way I climbed and managed to take 3rd in a pretty stacked field. Glad I went in it. Super challenging but rewarding. I love that you have one opportunity to perform and you have to make it count.
Sunday – DF with Lee. 27, 29 and tried Dog Bite 31 x 3. Should’ve refined beta a little more on my first go. Felt like I should of done it, but didn’t…
A good week. Nice to lower volume and feel sharp. Strength is present. Looking forward to the cool temps in a few months as I feel I’m on the right direction.
Friday – Bowlo limit session with Luke and started resetting the 45 with 100 Beastmaker holds. It will be good!
Watch Free Solo in the evening. Top film.
Saturday – Villawood with Tom and Dave. 11 routes up to 29.
Chicken at Frangos on the way home for recovery. BamBam!
Sunday – Yoga. Bowlo limit session with Tom on the new 45 layout. Top session.
Another good week. Feels good to lowering the volume a bit and letting the body do its thing. Feel a little flat but fingers crossed should be sharpening up for Tuesdays Moonpig comp and the NSW States on Saturday.
