are balancing your climbing training with different sports. I find cardio really helps me to be able to recover quickly at competitions whether in routes or bouldering. Running, swimming or biking are all great ways to increase your aerobic capacity. Opposition exercises (working the muscles that aren’t used as much in climbing) and stretching are also great ways to use the days you don’t climb. Pushups, elastic band arm extensions, foam rolling, wrist curls and suspension training are all great exercises to do on your days off.
