Video: This is What Happens to Your Body When You Climb

We all know that climbing is a physically demanding and challenging activity. But to fully appreciate everything that it does to our bodies, we need to head to the climbing gym with British climber Shauna Coxsey. In this video, she gives us the rundown of what kinds of demands the sport puts on our bodies and how it impacts the way we move and recover. If you’re already a climber, you’ll probably also already have an understanding of what you’re putting your body through. If you only admire the sport from afar, this will give you an even bigger appreciation for these athletes.
