Josh Hadley has been coaching with Lattice training since 2017 and working as our Head Flexibility coach since 2020. Josh believes that flexibility is a pillar stone in climbing performance that is often overlooked and currently a much less understood area in training for climbing. Cumulating lessons from current research, physiology and anatomy as well as influences from other sports where training flexibility is commonplace, Josh has become well established as an expert in this field.
Through his vested interest in learning more about this field and wanting to share his insights with the climbing community and other climbing coaches, this workshop will cover advanced topics in the field of flexibility such as:
- Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
- Task based stretching
- Loaded flexibility
- Exercise sequencing
- Gravity orientation
Covering topics of exercise prescription, this workshop is ideal for experienced climbers, and climbing coaches/trainers looking to further their own understanding and practical knowledge. To get the most out of this event it is recommended that attendees have a reasonable understanding of strength training.
This workshop aims to leave the individual with an understanding of a large range of exercises and supporting practical knowledge, which can be used either in their own training or to further educate their own coaching practices.
You will walk away from the weekend, having attended 4 hours of flexibility focused seminars and 6 hours of practical hands-on workshops. You’ll have the chance to ask questions and work with a like minded group of climbers interested in bettering their knowledge in this field.
