Artificial climbing walls have seen an enormous surge in popularity over the last few decades, and have improved beyond all recognition from the early basic efforts. Most large walls run introductory taster sessions, with all equipment provided. These are by far the best way to start out, since they will familiarise you with the skills and risks involved. In fact if you’re a complete beginner most walls won’t even let you in until you’ve taken such a course. It’d be great to just turn up and start climbing, but they cannot run the risk of novice climbers making serious mistakes. The guide will give you an element of self coaching and an awareness of how indoor climbing relates to the outdoors, and more importantly, how can you train to improve.CONTENTSPrefaceTraining overviewBenefits of the Stamina Foundations ProgramAchievement motivation for Stamina FoundationsAttitudes of achievementGoal oriented mindsets for stamina trainingSelf-determination in trainingTraining EssentialsProgressive 4 Week CycleAllocating time and avoiding procrastinationCautionsSetting GoalsThe importance of benchmarkingBenchmarking and ExamplesTraining Program ModelThe Action PlanThe immersion cycleChoosing the Skills to Train3 Week Program ScheduleMilestones and Progress PointsSkills Distribution and Performance GainsPreventing injuries and training safetyCyclic PeriodizationGeneral Training StrategyBuilding a base toward maximum speed-power and enduranceThe program Schedule and LevelsThe ExercisesTesting resultsStamina TestTracking your resultsQualitative assessmentsMaking your progress report summaryMain critical-thinking abilities during the training program
