Work vs. Posture for Rock Climbers

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | May 1st, 2019

Do you ever look outside in the middle of a work day, admire the beautiful warm weather, and wish that you could leave to go climb? We do, too. The bad news is that your job could be affecting more than just your climbing schedule. Many American jobs are computer-based and take a huge toll on our posture. We sit with our shoulders hunched, neck extended forward, and back muscles disengaged. Without correcting this posture, the shoulder is no longer situated appropriately in the joint. Therefore, when we reach during a climb, our shortened postures can cause injury. The good news is that we have exercises that will help avoid this problem. Try these at home, between routes, or before you climb to help you send harder.
