Climbing is naturally a more dangerous sport than some others, but it doesn’t have to pose a risk to your health if you are careful and put measures in place to prevent yourself from being injured whilst you are climbing.
If you have the right training and equipment then you already have everything in place to enjoy a good climb without any fear of falling or being injured, and just following a few other steps will make sure you always have the great climb that you expect to.
- Warm up. As with any type of exercise, climbing requires you to warm up and stretch before you begin. In fact, warming up is far more important with climbing than it is with many other types of exercise, as you will be using every muscle and tendon in your body to get yourself moving.
- Don’t climb too often. Climbing too often is likely to burn you out and will make each climb you undertake that much more difficult. You are far more likely to have an accident if your muscles are overworked, so you should train as infrequently as you feel comfortable with, and save your strength for important climbs.
- Rest. rest is just as important as exercise when it comes to climbing. Your body needs to be fully rested to be able to avoid injuries. Get plenty of sleep and make sure that your body is feeling fine before you attempt a climb.
- Check your equipment. Check and triple check all of your climbing equipment before you start climbing, so that you can be sure that is is in the best condition and will be able to hold you as you climb. Get someone else to check it over as well, so you can be completely sure.
