I just finished the 4 week Pitch One training plan. What do you suggest as the next plan?
A: Hi Joel,
It really depends on what you are aiming for. With our CS Team athletes, we generally follow a general strength program by a more specific program aimed at their individual goals. Here are common second plans, based on your training needs.
Bouldering Power: Power Bouldering 1
This plan is a good 4 week transition from strength into sport-applied power. It’s usually a 9-10 hour commitment each week, including climbing.
Route Climbing: Route Climbing Performance 1
This is a good performance rock climbing plan and can be modified pretty well to whatever specific project / trip / comp goals you might have.
General Strength: Unilateral Strength
After doing Pitch One, I like to push my strength-focused athletes into doing a unilateral (1 limb at a time) program. This tends to help you keep gaining strength and will help you recognize and correct some imbalances in your program.
Hope this helps.
