The hip dyno

how NOT to crimb. Zero points status








i've been slacking on this blog for a couple reasons.
1- haven't been climbing that much. one dick around session after work once a week and the circuit on the weekends (more so for my ego than training). nothing extrodinary to report.

2- I don't have internet in sisters.



3- spending 8 hrs a day hiking through this

  

    with bloody shins in the heat is not conducive to climbing psyche.











With that said; MONTANA TIME is fast approaching. In exactly 5 glorious weeks i will be in the land of milk and honey. And  if i want to send BUG EYES or BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE or CLASSIC OVERHANG....then  it's high time to start training.









should i train power?















or my achilles heal; that demon that has plagued me for the last 24 years....FLEXABILITY!






















ideal endproduct; wine guzzling, cheese munching, v12 crunching BBs
