[ Bren­dan Blan­chard]

Climbing - - APPROACH -

A few years ago, Bren­dan Blan­chard was out of climb­ing com­mis­sion after knee surgery, so he re­searched how to im­prove while on the mend. Blown away by the dra­matic re­sults of his first train­ing ex­per­i­ment, he kept at it. “[Train­ing] is a way to im­prove while try­ing to avoid in­juries,” he says, “and it’s a big part of my mo­ti­va­tion for climb­ing.” Read the fruits of his re­search on page 54.
