Speedy Climbing

It’s astounding how quickly these athletes can climb up a wall. Climbing is a superb example of a primal exercise.

A primal exercise is one where the whole body is used in an integrated and brain-gym way to cover distance and to combat gravity.

As we age, we must try to keep some ability to climb, do pull-ups, do a basic Turkish get-up, crawl, lift and carry, and so on.

If we can, then I suspect that, barring accidents, we won’t have any problem performing the other sports that we love to do.

Like golf, tennis, cycling and so on.
