I’m heading out to Nepal in mid November to climb Ama Dablam, and I am just entering the muscular endurance phase for this training.
When I come back, it will be early season for the Scottish Mixed and Ice climbing season, and I want to get the most out of my training preparation for that.
What I’d like to do, is that since I am not expecting Ama Dablam to be particularly technical ( at least compared to Scottish mixed climbing ), is to focus my ME training for the next 7 weeks on legs and continue my max strength phase on upper body work (pullups, max hangs etc).
Then when I come back I will focus on an ME stage for upper body work for mixed and ice climbing.
Does this sound like a sensible plan? Or is overlapping phases like this not likely to work?
