We started training specifically for these events 7 weeks ago when we found we could go. Training wise, we have been climbing lots down at SICG because of the height and the variety of walls angles. The X Games wall is 17 metres high with two, 1 metre overhangs and steep climbing in between! I have been doing sets of laps with only a short rest in between. This has been working as yesterday my last speed training day and I felt like it has all come together, that I'm flowing really well, and that I'm strong and powerful.
Rob has been doing lots and lots of training, SICG has been good for onsighting for him as all the route have been changed recently. He is looking really confident, strong and fit.
