      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Bouldering is over

Guys, I am new to this forum but still. I did not find any information on any training or exercises to maintain muscles. I am moving to the UAE for business, and have no idea what to do with that. How to keep your body ready for new routes? What's your advice? Anybody?

there are a lot of easily accessible options these days for training plans, if that's what you're looking for.  powercompanyclimbing.com, latticetraining.com, trainingbeta.com, and more.

If you only have access to a hangboard, there are many protocols to use.  I prefer the simplicity of Steve Bechtel's stuff (climbstrong.com) and his Hangboard Manual is pretty accessible imo, but there's also the Anderson's Rock Climbing Training Manual and Horst's Training For Climbing.  A science-y explanation of when to use what sort of protocol can be found in Eva Lopez's site (http://en-eva-lopez.blogspot.com/). 

as for hangboards, that outdoorsly list is good.  wood is nicer on your fingers if you're going to use it a lot.

If you're looking for more overall fitness, not just finger/forearms for technical rock climbing, then check out some of the plans at https://mtntactical.com/.
