Our special keynote speaker this year is Winslow Passey. Winslow has been a professional mountain guide since 2000, guiding in areas such as Nepal, Mongolia, Alaska, Antarctica, South America and the Western United States. She will be discussing the power of the mind and how to use it to improve your climbing ability!
*Barbell Training: This clinic covers weightlifting progressions to feel more confident in the gym. Learn how to use and set-up barbells, dumbbells, and the cable machine. We will show you proper form and movement so you can feel confident and comfortable to train harder for climbing or whatever your sport is. We will cover a wide range of muscle groups and lifts including progressions for squat, deadlift, chest press, overhead press, row, and core.
**Strength Training for Climbers: Learn about the basics of strength training for climbing, including how to get fingers of steel, pull holds down to your waist, get a core that can withstand any roof, and strong oppositional muscles that will keep you balanced and less injury prone. We will discuss and practice the use of common climbing tools such as the hangboard, pinch blocks, gymnastics rings, resistance bands, and the pull-up bar. In this clinic, we will review regressions and progressions for each exercise to cater to each participants ability level.
***Yoga on the Rocks: Climbing is often thought of as “freestyle vertical yoga.” Learn some yogic techniques to take you to the next level in climbing as well as some yoga asanas, breathing practices, and stretches that can be used to prevent injury and keep your body and mind feeling harmoniously balanced. Our instructor, Sarah Jane, has been guiding climbers through their personal yoga practices at The Front since 2010 and specializes in Ashtanga yoga.
