Climbing is gluten-free, Paleo, and Vegan. Throw away your Lactaid, your Gas-X, your Costco wholesale Tums case and add it to your wellness regimen. Not only can climbing tune and maintain a healthy body, but it can also affect personal development on several levels (it’s complex and great for me… like dark chocolate). Climbing can help heal mental challenges as it trains your physical weaknesses and strengths.
- CLIMBING GIVES YOU JUICY MUSCLES
Climbing works your upper body, shoulders, core muscles, and legs. Constant and conscious shifting and lifting of your own weight against gravity will sometimes do that. Do not be alarm when you find yourself breezing up stairs or lifting furniture without a batting an eyelash.
- CLIMBING KEEPS YOU LIMBER
Reaching for and grabbing holds stretches and flexes your muscles and raises your stamina. Conversely, yoga and routine stretching helps you get better at going the extra distance.
- CLIMBING MAKES YOU RIPPED
Hard climbing, that is. Don’t expect to get that sweet six-pack after your first V0, but if you persevere and stick to climbing with as much determination that carried you through your last project, you’ll soon be cursed with a fit bod. Until then, you’re still beautiful.
- CLIMBING SHARPENS YOUR BRAIN
De-stressing is something everyone deserves. Climbing gets you in a mental zone, honing your patience and problem solving skills. Who doesn’t need more of those?
- CLIMBING PUSHES YOU INTO A HEALTHY BODY MASS INDEX
Harvard Health Publications report findings that a person weighing 155 pounds burns 818 calories hourly. If you’re looking to lose weight, burning 500 calories every day helps shed around 1 pound a week.
- CLIMBING HELPS PREVENT DISEASE
Climbing reduces your blood pressure and cholestrol levels. It also limits the risk of heart disease and diabetes. The minimum time commitment per week to reap the health benefits from climbing is only 1.25 to 2.5 hours, concludes the 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
