CLIMBING IS A SPORT FOR A HAPPIER, HEALTHIER LIFE
Climbing is a total body workout: Your back, abdominal, core, and leg muscles will all get exercised as well as your smaller muscles as fingers, shoulders, and arms.
Generally, climbing has not thought of as a cardio, ascending walls is a sure way to get your heart pumping, similar to the way climbing stairs or jogging does. One hour climbing session will burn well over 800 calories.
In addition to building up muscle and helping you get that cardio, climbing involves problem-solving skills and reduces stress.
