Climbing Training: Core Strength (Part 1)! [HWM Ep 8]

This video shows part 1/3 of my core strengthening routine. I typically do each workout once per week, usually after climbing, hangboarding, or campusing.

Core strength is important for two reasons: to climb harder and prevent injuries. Increased core strength will improve ones ability to climb overhung terrain, cross, gaston, and catch swings on dynos and dead points.

Workout summary:
Barbell climbs: 2-3 sets of 3-4 reps
Dragon flags: 3 sets of 3-4 reps
Dumbbell press sit ups: 3 sets of 20 reps
Weighted hanging knee tucks: 4 sets of 30 s holds
Bonus: 2 sets of 15 reps each

Dragon flag progressions are found here:
