You will learn the fundamental differences between training for bouldering and route climbing, particularly concerning the energy systems that power climbing movements. Eric with detail his climbing-specific aerobic system route training session at the G1 gym.

Eric will then describe Drew’s unique limit boulder training methodology that’s elevated him to being one of the very best boulderers on the planet. Learn how Drew puts his home woodie to work for training alactic power for his limit bouldering!
