The Rock Warriors Way



Mental training is scarcely covered in the climbing literature, yet it is as important to performance as strength, flexibility, and technique In his unique approach to mental training, Arno Ilgner draws essential elements from the rich warrior literature, as well as from sports psychology, and combines these with his extensive climbing experience to create The Rock Warriors Way This is the first book I ve seen that addresses, in depth the inner game of climbing and it s about time Jim Bridwell An excerpt from the introduction The Rock Warrior s Way is both a mental training program and a philosophy of rock climbing that draws from the rich warrior tradition and literature Its style is very different from what many people think of as war like, being neither combative nor overly aggressive Rather, it is a program of balance, harmony, and insight that is inspired by a peaceable application of ancient martial traditions.

    While sitting or dangling with my climbing crew at the base of a climb or next pitch, the idea of climbing as a metaphor for life has come up time and again How we move through a climb can often mirror how we move through life.The mental aspect of climbing is often the biggest limiter The fear of the fall, the self talk over the crux or the frustration around set backs all come into play on the wall and in day to day challenges.This book gave clear insight and steps into assessing and unders While sitting or dangling with my climbing crew at the base of a climb or next pitch, the idea of climbing as a metaphor for li...

    It is embarrassing how well Ilgner called out each and every one of my mental habits for returning to my comfort zone some I had no idea existed until he poignantly threw it in my face He sprinkles his own personal anecdotes to help us relate to these new concepts and provides exercises and the end of the book to truly master his process before you hop on your project The concepts expressed in Rock Warrior s Way are seemingly applicable to every aspect of life This book is everything neede...

    Thoughts have a large influence on climbing outcomes With some introspective awareness, one can see how many thoughts serve to reinforce the ego rather than to objectively evaluate a given climbing challenge Instead, cultivate present awareness while letting go of subjective judgments This begins by disidentifying with whatever thoughts arise As with all the Rock Warrior processes, the key step in Becoming Conscious is to focus attention In this case, you focus attention on your inner self Thoughts have a large influence on climbing outcomes With some introspective awareness, one can see how many thoughts serve to reinforce the ego rather than to objectively evaluate a given climbing challenge Instead, cultivate present awareness while letting go of subjective judgments This begins by disidentifying with whatever thoughts arise As with all the Rock Warrior processes, the key step in Becoming Conscious is to focus attention In this case, you focus attention on your inner self, on the flow of your own thoughts Sit back for a minute and let your mind wander You...

    Excellent book One of my favorites now Extremely insightful, borderline revolutionary, for any climber especially so for beginners, logically It delves into the depths of the ideal mindset not just for the activity of climbing but for the individual who climbs It will likely cause any reader to pause and ref...
