Given the number of rants/raves that go on (Yes, mostly started by me) I’m going to propose a science and training section to the forum.
General science rants can be put here (won’t clog up the facebook page when I go off on one) and it would be a good way for people to outline any training they are doing away from the wall- whether that be lifting (kidding), fingerboard training, pull-ups or whatever. Would be interesting to see what people do.
For example, I found this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-27389257 “Endurance exercise ‘interferes with heart rhythm’ ” and Im aware that a number of people in the club may have an interest in the topic. However, posting it to fb would clog up the group, and theres no real place for it on the forum (correct me if Im wrong).

The forum is actually about to get a rearrange to make it “technophobe” friendly.
(At least I’ve some ideas on it, nothing happens with out the gingers approval)
The science rants will burn out pretty quickly because everybody in the club has brain cells and hence wont disagree 😛May 23, 2014 at 14:26 #2160
You’d seriously be surprised.
I was thinking a place to fire up both training ideas/hints/tips and general scientific papers (provided theyre relevant to mountaineering/club interests).May 23, 2014 at 14:45 #2161
Chris, are you now looking for a medium of arguing with a certain someone because you won’t be in the pub and they removed you as a friend? 😛May 23, 2014 at 14:47 #2162
I’m totally up for this idea. anywhere I can propanda the intellectual purity of the one true science.May 23, 2014 at 14:49 #2163
Lord no, the opposite actually (though they got told before they deleted the comment).
I’d just rather not clog up the facebook group with pointless debates, but as we all know I also enjoy the odd scientific discussion ;).
I’m also going to point out the training side of this again- I think there could be some benefit in having a section of the forum dedicated to training, even if its just a stickied post with links to a couple of climbing blogs.May 23, 2014 at 14:54 #2164May 23, 2014 at 14:58 #2165
Well that sorts that out. Expect further contributions from me on pull ups/plyometrics/stretching/any other overlap between climbing and lifting.
