Combining Weights with Climbing

I have had a hard time with the training recently and have noticed less and less improvement, and some parts the improvements have almost completely stopped.

So I decided that I had to change my schedule and maybe add something new outside of the gym.

Schedule changes

The recent months I have been training 6 days each week and have used the same schedule since February. 

Previous training scheduled looked like this:

  • Monday: Legs

  • Tuesday: Back

  • Wednesday: Shoulders

  • Thursday: Arms and abs

  • Friday: Shoulders or Legs

  • Saturday: Chest

  • Sunday: Rest

After I decided to start to complement my training with dynamic climbing training I made several test schedules to try and get a good combination of training.

  • Monday: Rest

  • Tuesday: Climbing

  • Wednesday: Climbing

  • Thursday: Lower Power

  • Friday: Upper Power

  • Saturday: Lower Hypertrophy

  • Sunday: Upper Hypertrophy

The problem I have is that climbing uses lower arms and hands much more than I have previously done and I need to be more flexible.


I have not been climbing long enough to see the improvements I'm looking for, BUT I have seen improvements in how much I can climb.

Going Forward

I will continue with this for about 3 months (I will evaluate at the end of February) and track improvements every week.
