Research > Experimental Training

I plan to do very short write-ups on experimental training protocols which I read about in the climbing research literature. These won’t require any special equipment outside of what you would find in a typical climbing gym. Come back here for new ideas about how researchers are studying training. Be warned: these protocols are highly experimental – seek guidance from an experienced coach. The Beta Angel Project does not endorse the use of these protocols.

Type A: Protocols directly from Researchers
