Core fitness, research has shown, is most often associated with winning sailor conditioning. I keep looking for the definitive guide to the best, doable exercise routine to focus on this area. Although written by a climber, this guide from Outside Online may be my leading candidate so far. I would think that climbers and sailors share the need for a strong and flexible core combined with awesome stamina. Let us know what you think. Do you have other routines that you think might be even better?
Scott Johnston is a climber, a former World Cup nordic skier, and co-author of “Training for the New Alpinism: A Manual for the Climber As Athlete.” He believes athletes in every sport—not just climbing—will reap the benefits of a strong trunk, from greater endurance to a reduced risk of injury. Below, Johnston shares the ultimate killer core routine, straight from his book.
