9 von 10 Kletterern machen die gleichen Fehler

Author: Dave MacLeod
Publisher: Riva Verlag
ISBN: 9783864135804
Release Date: 2014-07-24
Genre: Sports & Recreation

Es gibt eine Vielzahl von Ratgebern, die Klettertechniken beschreiben, Tipps geben und die besten Übungen zeigen. Dennoch machen 9 von 10 Kletterern die gleichen Fehler und halten sich dadurch selbst von ihrem eigenen Fortschritt ab. Dabei handelt es sich immer um dieselben Probleme: Motivationsmangel, schlechtes Zeitmanagement und die Unfähigkeit, die eigenen technischen und taktischen Fehler zu analysieren und zu korrigieren. Oft wird zum Beispiel übermäßiges Krafttraining betrieben, während leistungshemmende Faktoren wie die Sturzangst ignoriert werden. Dieses Buch behandelt die gängigsten Fehler beim Klettern und präsentiert Methoden, die nicht nur zur Verbesserung der Klettertechnik beitragen, sondern dem Kletterer auch helfen, am Felsen souveräne Entscheidungen zu treffen und sich auf das Wichtigste zu konzentrieren. Dave MacLeod hat seine 16-jährige Erfahrung als Kletterer auf Weltklasseniveau, Sportwissenschaftler und renommierter Trainer in diesen Ratgeber gesteckt, der jedem Kletterer helfen wird, über sich hinauszuwachsen. »Dave MacLeod zeigt eine erfrischend andere Betrachtungsweise des Trainings und Kletteralltags. Profitieren kann davon jeder – egal ob Anfänger oder Profi –, der gewillt ist, Einbahnstraßen zu verlassen und an seinen Schwächen zu arbeiten.« Dr. med. Volker Schöffl, Sportorthopädie Klinikum Bamberg »Wer die Grundlagen hat und wirklich durchstarten will, für den gibt es keine Alternative auf dem Buchmarkt. Absolut empfehlenswert – besonders für ambitionierte Kletterer.« »Definitiv ein Buch, das aus dem Standardschema fällt – das lohnt sich!« »Die Fehler, die Dave MacLeod beschreibt, mögen simpel klingen. Doch wer es schafft, sie zu vermeiden, wird ein völlig neues Leistungsniveau erreichen – unabhängig vom Schwierigkeitsgrad. Äußerst lesenswert!«
