      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!

training for climbing by thinking about it....

Recommended Posts

The science may be new, but the concept is not.

 

With regard to climbing, the role of visualization in engram acquisition and reinforcement is covered at length in Goddard and Neumann's book Performance Rock Climbing. If you want a theoretical and analytical explanation of training for climbing this book is excellent.

 

Daydreaming is not as useless as once thought

I have tested this theory extensively for over 30 years and can say it’s the single most enjoyable training method I have encountered. Which is great because overall it was also one of the least effective.

The good Doctor has had good success visualizing the shit out of projects, imagining every move from stepping out of the dirt to clipping the chains. When you're falling asleep, when you're driving to or from the crag, when you're wasting 8 hours at your F-ing desk...replay, replay, replay, dispatch. Next!
