    Great to see you've been able to get back to the wall and bouldering.

      HellYeah Great bouldering I would like to know, how did you feel it ,I mean regarding our conversation here.

      How long was the gap between your last training in bouldering and how many kg is there a difference? ( If I may ask ) .

      And also re your knees : I started to have back some joints probs...maybe the hot weather in Orbit😇 ..maybe too much training...but ...maybe only 2 kg (!?) difference in my weight? 🤔 ...kind of worries me...would be happy to know your experiences on that... 👍🍀

        Miss_Dada It was 3 month and a week ago since I did some bouldering. I did finger training one or two times in between, but that is maybe two month ago.I assume I have 3kg more now, but I did not weight myself for a week, so I am not sure...

        I guess I can only tell the difference, once my body has adapted to the impact, again. I keept myself away from steep walls and small holds, focused on balancing and technical stuff. So it felt good.

        For now, bouldering won't be my top priority, will say, I do it as a strength day, but I won't change/arrange the days around it. Priority is weight loss/carsio and overall strength/calisthenics... As it is getting hotter anyway, performance won't be that possible indoors anymore.

        My knee problems are coming from an old injury, but reasonable training helps to stabilize it...weight isn't that much of a factor in my case...

          Yay for bouldering! It's always the hands and fingers that hurt first when you haven't been bouldering regularly, right?

                For some reason, I just realized you do TaiChi! I’ve heard only good things about it. What’s it like and how long have you been doing it?

                  The reason might be, that I haven't done it since the lockdown. Lazy student...

                  I like it very much, it is calming, meditative, but also active, strengthening and good for mobility.

                    Congrats on bouldering again. I hope your knee won't give you too much trouble.

                      Thx, Amirsh I do not not have any atm... I guess balance and strength training do a good job... and always 'listening' to my knee, is the most important part...

                        It looks like all your pre-lockdown activities (bouldering and TaiChi) are back

                            First week of GET STRONG is done!
                            I made some changes to the intensity and rep
                            amount here and there… and it worked well…
                            I might end up in a higher rep range
                            than the program, at least for upper body part...

                              Kudos for finishing the first week of GET STRONG! How many weeks does it take to complete it?

                              Comment


                                hc0381 thx, it has 4 phases, phase 1 and 2, which I do simultaneously, are fullbody workouts three times a week.
                                Phase 3 and 4 contain four workouts a week, two days for the upper body and two days for the lower body.

                                Every phase has the same exercises, the weeks differ in the number of sets an reps, if you cant do the given amount, you have to repeat the previous week. The workouts in one week are identical. At the end of a Phase is a test, you have to pass before you can do the next phase with harder exercises.

                                So best case cenario, it is a 16 week program. But to do it that way, you have to be (very) advanced...

                                That said, I am technically in week 6, now.
