Dojo Mojo: Adam Ondra, Martin Stráník Simulate World Cup Climbing

Two of the world’s best professional climbers show us how they prepare for the highest level of competition.

Pro climbers Adam Ondra and Martin Stráník have held their own in IFSC World Cup tournaments since before they could drive. Consistently shelling out strong performances on the world stage, as both athletes continue to do, requires a devout and effective training regimen.
