Training Program adapted from Urban Climber by myself and improved with the help of USA Climbing National Coaches' Committee member, John "The Power Merchant" Myrick. A profile for John: http://www.climbonproducts.com/john-myrick/

This periodized program is designed to prepare you for a six week period of peak performance. This peak can be used to prepare you for a competition, a specific trip, or even just a specific problem. It is best to schedule the program around whatever your end goal is (e.g. peak in November, if you plan to do a competition in November); this will keep you motivated throughout the 4 months of continual training you will be doing. The program consists of an 8 week strength and conditioning period, a 6 week high volume period referred to as "the bulk," a 6 week performance focused period, and ending with a 6 week peak period. This program is for more advanced climbers, and could lead to overtraining and injury for a beginner climber (if you are a beginner, I can help you adjust the load to suite your skill level). You will be training 3-4 days a week, anywhere from 1 to 2.5 hours a session.

The second spreadsheet (if you're unfamiliar with google docs, there are tabs to select the different sheets at the bottom of the screen) has the calendar which shows exactly what drills/exercises to do which days, the order to do them in, and a list with descriptions of each drill/exercise. An example day (day 1 of week 7 of phase 1) is in the cell to the right.

(#) corresponds to a climbing drill listed in the "CLIMBING DRILLS" area in the calendar tab. (7) is the drill called "on the minutes"

HNG is shorthand for hangboard and is described in the "NON CLIMBING DRILLS" area in the calendar tab. HFR, % are also described in the same area in the calendar tab

The third spreadsheet is a lengthy warm up to be done before an "on the wall" warm up (I'll usually do about 20-30 min on the wall). If you feel you don't need to do all the exercises described, that's fine; I do an extended warm up because I've succumbed to many injuries in the past so I like to play it safe. Follow the 1 rep max warm up exactly though.
