A few months ago we invited our international MoonClimbing team over to the UK, while they were here we pinned them down to get some of their top training hints and tips, to help improve your climbing, or as we say at Moon #trainHardclimbHarder.
The first video is by David Mason, and he talks through Deadhang training using the Moon Dead Hang rung
this is a breakdown of the exercise:
To find your maximum weight, you need to
deadhang a 20mm edge with enough
weight added to cause you
to fail at exactly 12 seconds.
This is your training max weight.
It should only be treated as a
baseline though, if it feels too easy
you should increase the weight
Finding your max weight will constitute
a session in itself and shouldn't
be incorporated in this workout.
Warm up routine -
5-8 secs with 50% max weight added
1-3 mins rest
5-8 secs with 75% max weight added
1-3 mins rest
5-8 secs with 95% max weight added
then 3-4 mins rest
5 sets of 10 second hangs
at your predetermined
rest 2-4 mins between sets.
Adjust weight to your level
so you complete all 5 sets.
Warm up - 3 sets of hangs at 50%, 75% and
95% of max added weight with 1-3mins
Rest 3-4 mins.
Session - 5 sets of 10 second hangs with
max added weight with 2-4 mins
Adjust weight up or down to complete 10secs
Maintain strict form with the fingers.
