workout/diet to enhance my rock climbing
anybody have any suggestions to help on my workout/diet in an effort to improve my rock climbing abbilities? i don't have access to a gym (spending that money on membership at climbing gym), nor do i own any weights. i could buy some if they are suggested (don't really know what to buy).
my biggest goels are: increasing stamina, flexability and strength while remaining lite. I'm pretty thin and have very strong legs, but i could loose 5lbs in a quest for a 6pack.
currently my workout involves:
1 time a week:
8 miles hike
3 times a week:
climbing at exposure gym
2 sets of 15 pullups on door frame (fingers only, palms out)
2 sets of 15 pullups palms out on bar
2 sets of 15 pullups palms in on bar
40 push ups
40 sit ups
10 sets of this thing my PT told me to do
(i slipped a disk in my back 1.5 years ago. lay on my back, pull left knee to nose, count to 15, pull right to nose, count to 15, pull both to nose, count to 15, ect. it seemed to help, so i kept doing it)
20 minute jog with my dog (his favorite time of day)
i recently quite smokeing, and i plan to gradually up my jog time as my lungs get better. 20 minutes REALLY destroys me right now.
my high metabolism has allowed me to remain quite thin (5'11" 150ish pounds) despite NOT watching my diet at all. basicly i have simply tried to lower my carb intake, cut down to 2 cups of coffee a day, eat more chicken, drink LOTS of water (over 80oz/day), and drink less soda. i've NEVER drank non-diet soda or been much for sweets. but i can destroy burgers and pizza, trying to do that less.
