The Lattice Board Assessment
Step One: Book your Assessment
You have two options for booking a Lattice Board Assessment, depending on your location:
1) Book an assessment through our website with one of Lattice’s own coaches at a Sheffield climbing wall.
2) If you’re not based in Sheffield, you can head over to our Partner Wall page and find your nearest wall or coach, then contact them directly to book an assessment near you.
Step Two: Complete Your Testing
When you do a Lattice Board Assessment, you’ll spend two hours with a Lattice Coach or an Accredited Coach who will put you through our carefully designed testing protocols. The assessment is designed to test your full physical climbing performance; from mobility to finger strength, aerobic capacity to strength and power. Your coach will also assess your technique and movement efficiency and discuss this in your report.
We assess your movement efficiency and pacing by watching you climb normal boulders, and with a series of tests on the Lattice Board, such as twisting movements and gaston strength.
We'll ask you to perform a series of tests (such as lever lifts and shoulder engagements) to see if you have any muscular weaknesses or imbalances.
We test your max finger strength on the Lattice Rung with both one and two-arm tests. We then compare this to the average score for your grade to analyse whether this should be a high or low priority in your training.
The Max moves test is completed on the Lattice Board, using the standard sequence of hand movements. We record your max moves and time to exhaustion to provide an analysis of your aerobic and anaerobic energy systems.
The fatigue index provides an indication of your ability to recover between successive bouts of exhaustive exercise. Our testing provides you with a graph of your fatigue curve and lets you know your work capacity.
Step Three: Review Your Report
Once you have completed your assessment, your data will be securely sent to Lattice so we can analyse your performance against our huge database of existing assessments. Your Lattice Accredited coach will then combine these objective performance measures with their personal assessment of your climbing to provide you with in depth, personalised feedback about your climbing performance. The feedback report provides an overview of your assessment, and then discusses at greater depth your movement performance, finger strength, fatigue index, and muscular mobility, amongst other topics.
step Four: Sign up for a training Plan (optional)
After you receive your feedback report, you can opt to start one of our Lite or Premium Training Plans (if you haven’t already!). For a Lite Plan, you just need to complete a form which will be emailed to you upon purchase and wait 1-2 weeks for your plan. If you’d like to follow a Premium Plan, contact us to join our waiting list. Once you have completed all the relevant steps, you will be assigned a Lattice coach who will put together a Premium Training Plan, using your assessment results to customise your plan based on your weaknesses, goals and schedule.
