Core strength is imperative when it comes to climbing. It may not seem like it, but when you get to an overhang, you’ll want that strength to keep your hips in and feet on the wall.
For this workout, you will do each exercise for 30 seconds consecutively. Don’t be fooled. This is a lot harder than it looks.
Clams – 30 seconds
Jackknife sit-ups -30 seconds
Bicycles -30 seconds
Plank – 30 seconds
repeat this set 3 times
Here is a link to the Tabata timer I use for my workout. It’s simple to use but has a ton of cool features and gives you an interesting quote every time you open it. It also tells you the last time you did the workout which for better or worse makes me do it.
