“Injury-Proof Your Climber Knee”

In this article from Climbing Magazine we get some useful tips on improving you knee health.  This is something that I’ve been increasingly aware of over the past year as I’ve noticed those heel hooks on steep overhanging climbs really torquing my knee.  Click on over for some general knee wellness tips, as well as some specific exercises to strengthen many components of the knee.



Spring is Coming, Time to Train!

New workouts to refresh your gym training

While it may seem improbable given the frigid Winter we’ve had here in Minnesota, Spring is right around the corner.  In the last couple weeks we’ve even had a few days in the 40’s!  You may have been stuck in the gym all Winter and if your training regiment has been lacking(or like mine, nearly non-existent) here are several new workouts from Climbing Magazine to get you in shape for the Spring season; all while keeping you on the wall.

Happy Climbing!
