The debate on what is the right performance fuel in climbing is a highly discussed subject. Nutrition is very individualistic but it is well worth paying attention to it and setting up some kind of diet to complement your climbing / bouldering training.

The debate on what is the right performance fuel in climbing is a highly discussed subject. Nutrition is very individualistic but it is well worth paying attention to it and setting up some kind of diet to complement your climbing / bouldering training. 

pre climb

- Figure out the intensity and duration of the session

- short intense bouldering -->  easy-to-digest carbohydrates such as dried fruit, bananas, quick oats

- longer and lower intensity climbing sessions like alpine climbing --> slower digesting carbohydrates such as brown rice, quinoa, or beans

- Consider the timing of the meal 

- try to ingest about 25g - 30g of carbs  30 minutes before a climb, Chimpanzee

- 20 grams of protein within 30 minutes of training or climbing, Sens Chips

           

mid climb

Replenish glycogen levels every 60-90 minutes 

- high-quality carbs that digest slowly such as  berries, rice, leafy greens, quinoa, lentils, honey as sweetener... 

- drink enough water!

post climb

Recovery starts the minute you stop training

as soon as training is over, refuel with carbs and protein, try and avoid fats 

Stay hydrated at all times
