EXTENDING your fingers. Right you are, our rock climbing internet friend, however, it is also true that climbers who do not train their antagonist stabilizer muscles in their lateral forearm are prone to pain and in certain cases, lateral tendinosis (Tennis Elbow) – You know, that irritating pain in your elbow after climbing for a whole week straight? Yeah, that. BUT, what you might not have known is that when your arms are all chicken winged out during a crimp, you’re actually using your underdeveloped extensor muscles to hold the position. That’s right, you’re straining the the same muscles that cause this pain.
To make things worse, a severe case of lateral tendinosis can require 6 MONTHS or longer of rehabilitation.
Now, if you love climbing as much as we do, 6 months of no climbing would really, really, suck. It’s important that you constantly train your extensor muscles when you go rock climbing, that is, if you’re planning to continue climbing for many years to come.
