Skinny Small Vs. Big Strong (Which one are you?)

Look at the “big” climbers like Chris Sharma or Dani Andrada (he’s a beast when he climbs Ali-Hulk in Dosage V). You don’t hear about their injuries. Their bodies are balanced and they actually have some pecs to support the front side of their trunk. Alex Puccio is the female equivalent.


Look at the thin climbers like Dave Graham, Paul Robinson, Adam Ondra, etc. Paxti Usobiaga injured his shoulder requiring surgery and so did Ethan Pringle and Beth Rodden. They all have quite wide shoulders but no muscle to back it up.

Oh you suck. How can you never of torn a flapper. I have had 6 of them in the one day from that damn boulder competition last year.
