Rock Climb better INSTANTLY – 4 beginner mistakes to avoid


Hey geek climber, rock climbing is too hard.
My arms are not strong enough. That is the number one thing I heard from
my non-climber friends all the time, and No, that is not true. One of the world’s best female climber looks
like- Climbing is about using minimal energy to climb as much as you could, and you will
be able to achieve it if you avoid the following mistakes. The first mistake that beginners usually make is
climbing with too much arms and not using enough legs. Rock climbing should be like
climbing the ladder instead of doing pull ups. For an average person, the quads is at
least 2 times stronger than the biceps, so, make sure to climb with your legs. The second mistake that beginners usually
make is arms bending while static. When you are thinking about what to do in the next
move, you should keep your arms straight, otherwise you will drain out your arm strength really
fast. For an average person, the straight arm strength is at least 1.7 times stronger than
the bent arm strength, so, make sure to re-position yourself to keep your arms straight. The third mistake that beginners usually make is
stepping on a foot hold with the middle foot. If you do that, you will have trouble stepping
on small holds and matching feet. The correct way is to use your toes to step
on foot holds, and it might be a little bit uneasy initially but the thing is the soles
on the rock climbing shoes are designed to help you stick with it. Stepping with your toes opens up the possibility
of turning your legs to a optimal position, the possibility to step on small holds
and the possibility of matching feet. The final mistake beginners usually make is
barn dooring, which means you only have your right foot and right hand on the wall
or just your left hand and left foot on the wall. This is bad because a lot of arm strength
is wasted on balancing yourself. See how much easier it is without barn dooring? Thanks for watching. Make sure to like and
