A guide to warming-up for climbing

12:09 5th June 2013 By Andrew Cremin

In part two of their a series of videos, adidas-sponsored climber Shauna Coxsey deals with warming-up properly before getting started on the bouldering wall.

Apparently there is some method to getting up and going on the bouldering wall, as anyone who has gone hell-for-leather right out of the blocks only to have to finish early with that horrible wrist cramp can attest.

In the video Shauna sticks to this plan;

  • Simple moves on the wall to get the blood flowing.
  • Plenty of stretching.
  • Increasing the difficulty of the moves.
  • Working on actual bouldering problems when fully warm.
