Strength training circuits will be a series of exercises that will change every week. These circuits wont target specific muscles but will work muscle groups and will be geared towards raising overall fitness. They will be done twice a week with at least one full day in between to recover expect to be able to push harder on the second day.
While the exercises will change every week, the format will remain the same. The format will be two sets of 4 exercises with a 5 min break in between. During a set each of the 4 exercises will be done in rotation for 40 seconds each and done 4 times.
Use light weights or body weight only, this isn’t about building muscle mass but getting fit over all and balancing out the counter muscles from those used in climbing. It’s about pushing your body to recover faster, push hard to do as much as you can for the 40 seconds. Push to failure each time but as you fail rest just long enough to recover and then start pushing again.
Form is everything, 100 reps with bad form is worse than not exercising at all.
Catagories for exercises for each set:
