  • V3... I think someone is a sandbagger 😂 Pork Chop is one purdy boulder 😍 but you best be ready to trust smear feet and get realllly spanned out. Thankful that @abbyhsiung started the send 🚂 on this bad boy or I’m not sure I would have followed through tbh.

  • The last few weeks have been hectic. 
We sold our house and will be moving into a new one...in Greece! 
Just kidding. It’s still in Ottawa, so the Greece plan will just have to wait a little bit longer. 
Now that all the house things are sorted out though, I can FINALLY plan out my trip to Red Rocks (or Kolob Canyon, St. George, Joshua Tree—someone help me decide!). 🤔 .

  • I love to try new things. That’s what life is all about. Adventures. I might not be brilliant at some of them as shown in pic. I only managed about 4 seconds on my feet 😂but I’m not afraid to try and work hard to Achieve great things for me. I’ll be back Zorbing in November in Florida to make it to at least 8 seconds ( It really not as easy as you 🤔 think) Im training hard at the gym to get stronger and fitter. Improving all the time. What are you going to try next ? #surfing #skiing #horseriding #running #rockclimbing #skydiving What ever it is go for it put your all into it. #adventuretime #livelifetothefullest

  • Testing climbs on my recent set in the Hub. Some comp style, hard climbs on plastic. It’s a bit of a steep learning curve for someone who’s so used to climbing outdoors, where the moves are considered ‘old school’ and ‘basic’.

  • The Knee bar pad: 
A moderately contested tool, whose purpose was most likely to protect the skin on your leg and for your knee bars to stick better. BUT! In my own personal experience, it also reduces strain on your Hamstring. I won't go into extensive detail on the physiology behind it, but typically when placing knee bars your hamstring is oriented in a shortened (knee bent) position and therefore can't get much shorter. Now when you try to activate the hammy in this position, your muscle fibers essentially pull way too far past each other and you get cramping followed by sore hammies, and ultimately fewer burns on your projects. The pad allows your hamstrings to rest and relax, providing more 🔥's on your projects, and the send!!

This particular pad I'm using in the video was bought from @sendclimbing. A phenomenal product, so if you need one for your project definitely hit them up. Note*** I did work this problem without a pad, and it wasn't pleasant on the skin or the hamstrings. .

  • The 🦖 to Gaston: 🔊ON!
Most typically occurs as a horizontal Dyno, if you don't hit the holds in an appropriate position your shoulders will be weeping. Or you'll take a header to the floor. Both sound bad to me, so let's fix that! 
In this case, the direction of the Dyno is ⬆️ and ↗️ adding a more complex series of movements. However for all 🦖 to Gastons, the absolute best thing you can do for your shoulders are 1️⃣ To power up from your feet to bring your chest as close to the holds as possible, and 2️⃣ to hit the holds with bent elbows. This allows much greater activation of the musculature in the back and biceps/triceps, and affords much better control of swing.

Dynamic movement: for this series I'll be breaking down several videos with different types of dynamic movement, and the on wall techniques that I particularly notice to prevent shoulder injuries. If you have a particular situation of Dyno, please comment and I'll do my best to get another video out.
___________

The simple vertical 🦖:
This is the basic starter dyno, and arguably one of high injury rate. Especially when beginners are attempting it for the first time and have not yet built up the appropriate shoulder strength and body awareness. The start and finish holds for this dyno are just far enough to warrant a full Dyno, and the need to hit the last hold single handed. The main stressors to the shoulder are going to be the swing, and the straight elbow orientation. Since the elbow is straight we are unable to activate our biceps enough to place forces through the elbow joint. This leaves the forces at the hand, wrist, and shoulder. To bias force into the hand and wrist, embrace the swing. Allow your body to swing out, but attempt to keep a straight line running from your hand through your shoulder and towards the same side hip. At the peak of the swing, ready your foot for wall contact as this will be your first point of control once the swing has finished. Nothing is more challenging than controlling a swing for longer than you have to. Once your body is settled, get your other hand on as quickly as possible to further disperse the force away from 1 shoulder. ______
Have anything to add? Please share your comments! Thanks to the give for the awesome sets
