Training isn't falling into place really well. I have gotten too busy with some other stuff. I have been climbing more in the last 2 weeks than I have in the last 2 months. It is good to be back. I am only climbing about twice a week.
Here is a challenge for ya. After fully warming up with some climbing, get yourself to a hangboard. You are about to do a nasty endurance/power endurance exercise.

On the jugs
Hang for 30 sec then drop.
Rest 30 sec.
Hang 30 sec.
Rest 30 sec.
Repeat for 10 min total.

1. If you can't stay on for 30 sec rest for the remainder of the minute (ie 20 sec/ on 40 rest).
2. If 30 sec on/30 off is too easy, increase the on time (40 sec on/ 20 sec off).

Do this once or twice per week at the end of a training session. To push endurance, increase the total time (15 min). To push power endurance, increase the on time or add weight with your hangs (ankle weights or hangs weight plates from your hips).
