Power Campusing

What is it?

Campusing for power helps you to deliver the most force possible as quickly as possible, helping you with explosive moves when climbing.

How should I program it?

You need to do power exercises at the start of your session when you are still fresh. Putting it before a strength bouldering or anaerobic capacity session can work well.

 
 

Campus Exercises

Each of the following exercises has a range of progression options associated with it. Have a look at the recommended prerequisites of starting each progression and make sure you are comfortable on all the previous versions. You can also progress by increasing the move size.
