It’s classic dirtbag insouciance when a modern climber like Alex Megos starts a training video with out-of-control sarcasm.
“Always do the session, even if something hurts,” he said, immediately after a joke about how warming up is “bullshit.”
It’s all in good fun for an elite climber like Megos, who dutifully explains that he warms up every single day on his hangboard. The video walks through the names and functions of each grip, as well as exercises for improving finger strength and endurance.
So grab some weights and start hangboarding your way to 5.15 with someone who knows how to get there. (Or injure yourself trying.)
