ACT - Adjunct compensatory Training for rock climbers - climbers' compensation training with a medical foundation
With this book, climbers can take their hobby to a new level.
This great guide book helps climbers to better withstand specific climbing training and reduce the risk of injuries and overexertion.

Good climbers do not only need strong fingers, but also should not neglect that these fingers are attached to a body which does heavy work during the climbing process. Unfortunately, many climbers focus their training mainly on finger strength without paying attention to the rest of their body. This can lead to very painful injuries. By increasing one’s overall strength, injuries can be avoided and climbing can turn into an even more enjoyable activity.

The authors of this book would like to help expert climbers with improving their overall strength by introducing them to Adjunct Compensatory Training, or short: ACT. ACT focuses on training the neglected muscle slings and innervation patterns within their specific range of motion, building up posture and core strength as well as balancing the athletic build of the body. The ACT concept was inspired by the authors’ long-time cooperation with high-level athletes. In this professional guide book, they combine their medical and methodical knowledge to effectively prevent injuries and overstrain.

In “ACT – Adjunct compensatory Training for rock climbers”, Volker Schöffl analyses the body from a sports-medical and biomechanical point of view. With his vast knowledge of climbing injuries and as a highly active avid climber, he understands why certain conditions could and do lead to injuries in the long-term. Dicki (Ludwig) Korb and Patrick Matros are world-renowned climbing trainers and coaches and focus on climbing-specific training and biomechanical analysis of climbing. By combining the two fields of expertise, the authors have collaborated to create ACT, which will help climbers to better withstand specific climbing training and reduce injury and the risk of overexertion.
