Power Endurance Workout
The videos and index excerpt for this workout are below. As I mentioned, this is just a screenshot from the actual downloadable program, so the links in the text won’t work.
The focus of this workout is climbing, campusing & fitness. Each of the videos show you how to do the drills for beginners, advanced, and elite levels of climbers.This should take you between 1.5 and 2.5 hours. Have fun!
Definition of a “hard” route:
One that you may or may not fall off of, depending on how tired you are. It should be close to or at your redpoint ability. It’s best to do hard routes that you have done before so you’re not hangdogging up the route as you do this drill. It’s ok if you fall off the route. If you do, just finish it up (if you can) and move on to the next one. Remember, this is not about sending all the time. Climbing to failure is good – it’ll make you stronger! You’re training power and strength, so the hard routes should have a mix of powerful moves and smaller moves on bad holds.

Here’s what a few people have said about the program.
The training plan went great! I have been climbing for around 12 years, I think 8 years of that I have been climbing in the same range of difficulty. After going though the plan I felt stronger and was able to push beyond that difficulty. I have a 2 year old son, run a small business and have another son on the way. The plan was flexible enough for me to fit it my schedule. I am looking forward to running through it again in a few months.
I thought the program was really good. It was challenging physically, but even more challenging mentally. It had a really rigorous schedule, and challenged me to push myself harder than I have in the past.
Completed the program at the start of April. Really enjoyed the focus it provided for the 6 weeks and my fitness felt good by the end of it. I had a couple of 7c/+ routes as targets for this spring but the way things have worked out I’ve not actually managed to spend any time on them. Hopefully later in the year though. Ticked a few other routes up to 7b+ and think overall my fitness has improved. I’m sure I’ll go back to the program again during another PE phase.
