More than any other facet of climbing training, endurance training is confusing.
Is it better to just boulder and ignore endurance? Climb at a super-low intensity all the time? Get ridiculously pumped at the end of each session?
Developing endurance is hard, but the principles are relatively simple. This course will cover the fundamentals of how energy is provided to the muscles, how we can best improve energy availability and use, and how training endurance can mesh with all the other training we seem to need.
This course will be split into two parts. This course goes live October 26th, 2020 - it will cover endurance from beginning to end - with about 2 hours of content. You’ll have 10 days to complete the course, and on November 4th 2020 at 11am (Mountain Time), you can join us for a 2-hour zoom call to have all your questions answered live, plus get a recording of the call emailed directly to your inbox. You’ll continue to have access to the course for 2 months or until December 21, 2020.
This course is for all levels of climbers and can be applied to all climbers from boulderers to alpinists.
What is Endurance?, Endurance in Climbing, Capacity vs. Power, Fundamentals of Energy Production, Fundamentals of Energy Use, Energy Systems, Programming Endurance Training, and Endurance in Practice.
Each course offered in the Classroom features a detailed presentation by one of our team of expert coaches, supporting notes, and a live video call with the presenter at the end of the course. If you are looking for the most up-to-date information on training, and want to know how to apply it in your own training or coaching, this is the place.
We've found that our athletes and students learn best via a combination of lecture, demonstration, and question/answer. With our class format, we work to optimize all three in order to provide the best learning opportunity possible.
