Climb over a wall with bare hands can be more or less easy in relation to the following variables (independent of us):
- The height of the wall
- The slope of the wall
- The wall surface type (eg. stone, live brick, etc.)
As well in relation to some other closely related to us:
- Our weight (in relation to the muscles we are going to use)
- Our height in relation to the height of the wall
- Our technical capacity
- Our flexibility
- The strength of arms and legs (fingers, wrists, shoulders, etc.)
- The kind of shoes we wear
To introduce the argument, let’s imagine a standard situation (not too complicated, not too simple), a 1.75m person who wants to climb on top of a 2.50m rock wall. For each component of our body involved in action, we need a specific workout.
Let’s see the first 4 exercises suited to the case:
- Race against the wall trying to make at least 2 steps on the wall (fully off the ground)
- Jumping, both stationary (looking for the maximum detachment), both in with long jump (with a run-up)
- Do push-ups (possibly with the ground hands deadlift)
- Perform pull-ups with our arms
In the next article we will see the subsequent exercises (more specific) and then the climbing technique.
- More greater is our fat mass, the more we have to train
- There are many different types of exercises and methodologies to climb a wall, those denoted in this discussion have been chosen for simplicity, efficacy and correlation to our type of workout (they can be inserted in our normal daily training)
