Do you have a strict training schedule for when and how you train throughout the year?
I really enjoy the progression you get from structured training plans whether it be comp results or training benchmarks. recently I have started a new training program with a new coach and I am keen to see the befits of the change in training.
What advice can you give to somebody looking to improve their training routine?
Keep it simple and consistent, pick out exercises that work for you in achieving your goals, and stay consistent in your program. listen to your body and have FUN.
What do you think of indoor climbing gyms in relation to climbing on actual rock?
Indoor climbing gyms are so vastly different from climbing on rock these days, as sport climbing has developed over the years it has grown into its own unique Facet of the sport. with modern route setting the possibilities of indoor climbing movement are almost endless.
Are you able to do a one-arm pull-up? How about a single finger?
Currently, I cannot, however, being able to do a one-arm pull-up isn't necessary to be a good climber. There are other facets of a climber's skill set that are just as, if not more valuable such as flexibility or footwork.
How much of the success as a pro climber is due to show and how much due to actual climbing skills?
Skill still has a significant role to play but, nowadays success in climbing is equally attributed to climbing skills and the showcase you show to the world, “no-one hears a tree which falls in the forest”. In order to stand out from the crowd and make a name for yourself you must showcase your unique personality online in some form of manner.
