Perhaps in our study, the steeply 0. Consequently, differences between the a limited number of small-sized handholds caused compet- itors to spend minimum time on each hold and move rapidly in an attempt to conserve energy.

Possible evidence for this strategy is the greater amount of time spent in motion during bouldering compared to sport climbing, indicating a more dynamic style of climbing in bouldering.

The nature of the problems analyzed, which were short and steeply over- hanging, and the necessity for multiple attempts by some elite competitors indicates bouldering requires a high level of skill and physical fitness. This supports the belief among climbers that bouldering represents the physically and technically most intense discipline of the sport with strength being central to bouldering performance. The overall exercise to recovery ratio during a 6-minute climbing period was ;1: Figure 2.

It is also unlikely traditional measures of successful athletes. Future research with a larger sample size exercise intensity such as heart rate would relate directly to could investigate time-motion and strategic differences climbing performance because of the small muscle mass between successful and nonsuccessful attempts by climbers utilized and the isometric nature of activity in the upper limbs in bouldering competitions.

Log In Sign Up. Introduction Researchers have been attracted to rock climbing since late s, partly because of its increasing popularity and also due to the rising interest in making it one of the Olympic sport disciplines.

Climbers are viewed today as gymnasts exercising on the rock rather than people risking their lives en route to the top. For different sex and experience of the subjects, type and setting of the events indoor or outdoor , the results may be different.
