Yesterday’s hangboard session was good stuff. Finally my plan is coming together. Small holds felt small. Big holds felt pumpy. I’m getting a practical sense for how to combine varying durations and intensities to simulate what feels like a full-length sport route. So I’m getting pumped. And my performance, in these sets anyway, is improving, specifically and noticeably.
Yesterday felt so good I’m thinking today I’ll increase an 18-minute set to 40. Super scientific, I know. But if I save my breath I feel a man like me can manage it. Clearly this would be easier with Tony Horton.
PS – This would not actually be easier with Tony. I would actually be really bummed if he worked out with me on the hangboard. Tony’s hair is stupid.
