Climbing Performance Study

Posted: 02-11-2014

I am proud to be assisting my friend Mike Deyhle with his University Of New Mexico Exercise Physiology Masters Thesis study on the subject of the Relative Importance of 4 Muscle Groups to Rock Climbing Performance. The study is being conducted through the end of March 2014 at the Kirtland Air Force Base indoor climbing wall in Albuquerque, NM. Stay tuned for the results once Mike has analyzed the data!
