How Climbing Will Change Your Body?

Getting into a workout routine is not easy, we’ve all been there: “tomorrow I’ll start working out” – and you workout for a week or two, maybe even a month and stop, or perhaps you are better than the average people and made it all the way to the end on some of the millions 21 days challenges that are out there, but soon enough most people (not all) will stop working out and will return to what they were before – sucks right?
 
I think there is a way to overcome this and make the changes we want permanent, there is something missing to most people, you see, most people don’t make the workouts fun and just a part of their day or week, how about turning your workout routine into a life style?

For me climbing is one of the perfect ways to live a life style that I enjoy and workout at the same time; I travel and hike a lot to get to climbing places (which by itself can be a workout), I meet new people almost every time I go out climbing (even on the climbing gym when going out isn’t possible), I get to feel like a kid most of the time I climb and most important – I’M HAVING FUN!
 
So here are the things your body will go through while working on your strength, flexibility, aerobic and anaerobic, coordination, balance, precision in movement and much more:
 
Abdominal muscles (Core) training – this may be the most important thing about climbing as the strength of your abdominal muscles is responsible to balance your body and keep you close to the wall/rock. You’d feel your core almost every time you go for a climb.
__________
Back – Muscles like your rhomboids, trapezius, and lats will work with your abdominal muscles and improve your stability during a climb.
__________
Arms – well, I think you know how this one works – climbing will definitely give you one hell of a workout for your arms muscles and tendons, especially if you are a beginner as you rely on your arms to pull you up, but in time you’d find out that with proper technique you can even use your legs.
__________
Legs – as you get better you’d start using your legs more and more to keep some of the effort away from your upper body and you will find yourself working every muscle in you lower part of your body from your big toe all the way up to your glutes.
 
• CLIMBING IS A FULL BODY WORKOUT!
 
But it’s not only physical change, the mental part in climbing will be a huge bonus in the term of concentration and focus, well just doing sports, doesn’t matter which type you’d get better in these areas but from my experience (and I’ve tried everything from running, swimming, climbing, martial arts all the way to golf and many more!), climbing is one of the few sports that really put you in the spot and makes you mind work hard in order for your body to perform at its best.
 
Maybe this one will not suitable for everybody as climbing can be a bit intimidating (I started climbing for that very reason – to overcome my fear) but just think of the concept of implementing something you love doing, like travel, hike, meet new people or whatever you want and I think that everybody can implement it on any sport they do.
