This workshop is the first of two that are primarily aimed at any coach wishing to further their knowledge of physical training. Whilst most gains for any climber will be found by developing their technique, tactics and mental approach, this workshop addresses how to create performance adaptation through physical training.
In terms of the LTPD model (Long Term Participant Development) covered in FUNdamentals 1, this course moves away from the ‘Fundamentals stage’ onto the ‘Learning to Train stage’. However this course covers the basic information required for a coach to have a fundamental understanding of the science behind, and practical application of, physical training.
The main topics covered are:
Sunday 11 November 2018 - Transition Extreme Aberdeen
Sunday 25 November 2018 - TCA Glasgow
Saturday 1 December 2018 - Inverness
Glenmore Lodge is also running a Physical Training 1 course on 23 November 2018. This should be booked directly with Glenmore Lodge.
The workshops are £80 for Mountaineering Scotland members / £95pp (non-members) / £60pp for host climbing wall staff
