Performance profiling - the science behind the social media!
Everybody must have seen it by now, the 9c Climbing test - first seen on Magnus Midtbø's YouTube channel, now with almost 1 million views, invented by climbers Stian Christopherson (@stianchristophersen) and Martin Mobråten (@martinmobraten). Likewise, over 2 million people have watched the testing we completed with Magnus Midtbø on his channel...
As climbing tests (performance profiling) have now featured on many key YouTube channels, including the likes of Emil Abrahamsson, Anna Davey, Eric Karlsson Bouldering, and Bouldering Bobat, we thought it was about time we sat down 2 of the people who've spent a LOT of time working in this area. Both Stian and Tom have done their fair share of popularising climbing testing, but underneath it all, there's a wealth of experience that they have to share when it comes to how they've worked with national teams and individuals over the years, not to mention the experimentation they've had to do.
Tom and Stian dive into the following topics in-depth:
1. The origins of the 9c test. Why did it go onto Magnus's channel?
2. Why do we test?
3. What makes a good test/profiling kit and what do we need to watch out for?
4. Physical testing vs technique vs psychology
5. Does testing tell us if we're a "good" or a "bad" climber?
6. What's the future of performance profiling, coaching and training in general?
