Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Having read and been impressed by previous books by Eric Horst I thought it was worth giving `Conditioning For Climbers' a try and I have to say I am glad I did. It offers up comprehensive training techniques in a colourful and well laid out format. If you have read `Training for Climbing' or `Learning to Climb Indoors' then some of the information will seem repetitive, but if not then this gives you a detailed and sound training plan to improve overall climbing fitness and strength. A lot of the training outlined is based on sound scientific principles and gives you confidence in trying them out. This book covers Conditioning Principles and Self Assessment, General Conditioning, Climbing-Specific Conditioning, Conditioning Program, Performance Nutrition and Injury Prevention and appendices looking at muscle anatomy and training charts. This has extensive photos in colour that illustrate the exercises being shown, and plenty of graphs and charts to back up information in the text. Horst's writing style is very easy to read and makes what can be a dry topic fun and engaging. If you are serious about improving your climbing abilities then this is the book to head for.

Both the content and the presentation of this book is absolutely first class. As well as being usefull for climbers of all levels of ability this would interest people who do other sports or cross training aswell.

Format: Paperback
Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced climber this book can give you advice on how to improve and progress in your training.
The book helps you find out what your strong and week points are. Then it tells you how you can train to improve all the different aspects.
But... the book doesn't do the training for you. YOU are the one that has to set you mind to doing it and put in the hard work.
I'd say... at the moment.... It's my new climbing bible.
P.S. I've been climbing since 1990, and I feel that this book has given me some great new tools to advance in my climbing.

Format: Paperback
I have both 'Training for Climbing' and 'Conditioning for Climbers'. They make good textbooks with good indepth information and a whole heap of excercises. Not a blow by blow account on Self help but a good source of information to arm yourself with to figure out how to train better.
