Workout Recap: Jan Week 2

This past week, Jan 6-12, I’ve gotten back in the habit of going rock climbing again. It’s been about 7 months since I started and I’m really enjoying it. My friends and I are trying to get into shape so we can start taking lead belaying classes by summer.

I recently stopped taiko drumming which is a very intensive workout as well as a musical/rhythmic activity. It took too much time to  drive over an hour one way to practice for 3 hours twice a week. The drive killed me and after 3 months, it was time to call it quits. So it’s back to more rock climbing!

This week’s workouts:

  • Sunday: top-roping for 1.5 hours (6 climbs)
  • Monday: top-roping for 2 hours (11 climbs)
  • Thursday: top roping for 2 hours (10 climbs)

My current climbing level is about 5.10a-5.11a, which is considered intermediate to advanced. The 5.10a is the warmup route and the 5.11a is the challenge route. Within that range, my friends and I try to do as many as we can before our hands give out.

Next week, I’m hoping to add some cardio into my workouts so it’s not solely strength intensive.
