Intensive "Bouldering & Floorwork" January 2019

5 Day Intensive "Bouldering & Floorwork" in January
02nd to 06th of January
Start: Wednesday 10:00am
End: Sunday 05:00pm
Prices: 600€/450€

In this intensive, we explore bouldering (climbing up to 4 meters high) as well as movement close to the floor. Both these scenarios, the horizontal and the vertical, are closely connected to us and our evolution. We observe how we can move on the climbing wall, what the principles of efficient movement our, how to effectively train climbing, and how to climb in a process-oriented instead of results-oriented manner. In the floor realm, we observe movement patterns and –sequences to learn to move in the three different floor worlds as we work towards open, free movement.

First day of the Bouldering & Floorwork Intensive. The approach I present in the bouldering section is to train climbing. There is a difference between training and performing. Almost no one in the bouldering gyms, besides some higher level climbers, is doing any climbing t r a i n i n g. Me and my students are one of the only people that I can see doing any drills on the climbing wall. I will write more reasons why I think using a training approach in climbing is useful and why I think people are not doing it. The drill shown in the video, performed by Christian, is the „Silky Hand Climb” or „Sloth Climb”, where lightly touch the new hold for 3s before you grab it. This drill is teaching you about positioning and stability on the wall and can be also used as a strengthener. #josephbartztraining #physicalcognitivepractices

The second day of the Bouldering & Floorwork Intensive. Diving deeper into both topics, integrating drills and single movements, exploring the possibility to improvise. The video shows the idea of repeating routes and doing them in lots of different ways, changing movements and qualities. In the Video „1h 1 Route” I presented this approach initially. This can be a creative tool and done for joy or also for performance aspects, to make you a better climber. Through this idea, you might also realise, that actually there is no need for huge climbing facilities and hundreds of routes to climb as you can spend a whole training on just one route. The question is more if your brain is wired to get new stimuli and instant gratification all the time or if you can stay with one thing. Indeed repeating routes is one of the many brain protective measures that we take to reclaim authority over oneself. #josephbartztraining #physicalcognitivepractices
