The monsoon is past. The temperature has dropped. Rosehips are a deep pink.
Rock Season is in its height.
Fall is the time to climb hard, a ton.
But as much as climbing feels good, it can imbalance you. Climbing a ton can create “negative movement patterns,” or what I call, Too-Much-of-a-Good-Thing syndrome. Negative movement patterns create muscle imbalances that can eventually lead to injuries.
My Focused Balancing Workoutcan help you stay injury-free during peak climbing season and year round!
