Looking for ways to build climber strength and mobility during the social distancing of COVID-19? This week’s Friday Flick Pick brings you a collection of great training routines from Lattice Training and Climber Yoga.
The 6-minute home workout from Lattice Training (above) is a routine you can repeat several times in a row to make a longer session, if your goal is to really push yourself into the red.
