The Core Training, Christian Core and his climbing training regime
Multiple climbing champion Christian Core launches his climbing and bouldering training App for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch.
The number of climbing Apps is on the rise. These applications which can be downloaded directly onto your mobile phones vary in use, from apps to read climbing mags and browse climbing guidebooks to those dedicated to climbing training.
The latest to go online is designed by Christian Core, one of the world's strongest boulderers. Of all his ascents, perhaps the one which stands out most is Gioia 8C+ which Core freed at Varazze in 2008 and which remains one of the hardest problems in the world. The Italian also performed outstandingly in competitions, so much so that in 2003 he was crowned Bouldering World Champion, and he confirmed his hegemony by winning the the Bouldering World Cup in 1999 and 2003.
Christain Core is one of the most accredited climbers therefore and now he shared all his experience and know-how to to "enable everyone to train seriously for climbing routes, boulder problems and competitions, via a series of training tables following a precise regime to improve and progress over time."
