Fitting it all in

Training is a bit like a long car journey where you never quite know the perfect time to refuel, if you dont refuel you won't get anywhere thats clear, but where is the best place to fill up? do you wait and drain the tank or just do it once you hit red? this depends alot on personality traits but it also depends on will power (which ironically uses glycogen).

Holding on for a bigger reward will no doubt pay off in the long run but we often get impatient and just take the short term rewards.

I have been battling with Index mono hangs and locking off below my shoulders for the last 2 years and i'm sure if i just proritized it rather than just pulling on the board or down the wall occasionally it'd open whole new dimensions up to what i could do on rock.

Basically training stuff like this or just doing specific exercises like fingerboarding in general should become automatic in a session, it should not take will power to initiate a fingerboard session after work, it should and will become habit once you've done it for a few weeks, just find a reliable time (Pre dinner/ post work is good) will power should be used when actually hanging off stuff and pushing on for one more strong set.

shorter sessions will keep the training tank topped up regularly.
longer sessions mean you can go for longer without training provided the energy is put into intese training and isn't wasted mucking about or staying warm etc.

the machine is starting to come together now... another day another bolt

you beast! ah if only itwas habit, fitting it in after getting soaked cycling home after a ten and a half hour day is easier said than done. the movement is fun climbing and the company of others mean its so much easier to motivate oneself...
will power is the key, and the desire to improve. just been hanging on my campus rung. awaiting the arrival of the beastmaker. need to do more.
