Wednesday was one of my friends birthdays and we
decided to celebrate by climbing rocks!
We went to a rock climbing gym in Tampa.
The moment we walked in we knew we were out of
place. It was about to get uncomfortable.
This place was packed with wire-strong little dudes
that had dense muscle and very low bodyfat.
Since I used to climb a lot when I lived in NY about 7
years ago, I knew just how tough this workout was
We started with the “pink” level for beginners. And
that’s pretty much where we stayed :)
It’s been two days since scaling walls next to a bunch
of 140 pound kids… and I am STILL SORE!
The thing is that I’m sore in places that I haven’t been
sore in a very long time.
Normally I dead lift, over head press, do some strongman
stuff and gymnastics.
My body knows what to expect.
But when I hopped on these climbing walls, I WOKE UP
all types of muscle that are normally asleep.
My fingers, wrists, elbows, muscles in my toes and feet…
My upper back, between my thighs and my obliques are
all on fire today.
This reminds me that we’ve got to challenge our bodies
with brand new activities every once in a while in order
to stay strong and balanced.
I plan on going back to the rock climbing gym next week.
I love the challenge, I love the new strength gains and…
I just love scaling those high walls!
Your training should be FUN and CHALLENGING!
