The Climbing walls of CCOR range in size from 4-8 feet. No matter what the size, if you’re going to make it over without the help of a friend or fellow friendly competitor, you’re going to need strong triceps. And you’re going to need to practice hopping up and locking your arms out so that you can get your feet over these barriers. If you have a dip station at your gym, then you’ll be able to easily strengthen and coordinate yourself in preparation for our climbing walls. Simply position yourself facing the dip station with your hands on either bar and hop up and lock your arms out. Hold yourself up for 2-3 seconds, hop back down, and then quickly hop right back up. For a greater challenge, crunch your knees up towards your body and hold them above your waist while your arms are locked out. Perform this exercise for 30 second intervals with 10– 20 seconds of rest in between for a minimum of 4 – 8 sets.
