    Hello folks,

    Im following a mix of the mixed and north face plans and have climbing days on the plan (who`d of thought). Only issue is I am now on a rig in the Persian Gulf where there is a depressing lack of climbing and even gym materials.

    So wonderful folks of the forum Im looking for suggestions on how to simulate climbing exercises. There is a very small gym with dumbells and I have a TRX with me.

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

    Building a wall here is unthinkable*

    Mrbird, that sounds difficult! Good on you for trying to stick with your training!

    I guess the question is what are your goals? That would determine the kinds of exercises you can do, even when you’re not able to access “real climbing”

    We do this when traveling.

    Add in a some sets of tricep curls and calf raises. It can get real fast.

    Hello there, cheers for the reply..

    Im Chamonix based so alpiney mixed, maybe technical mixed. Struggling to think how I can simulate pitches of climbing.

    Need to keep the training haha. Least I can maybe be strong and scared instead of both.
