“In summary, it appears that success in climbing is not related to individual physiological variables but is the result of a complex interaction of physiological and psychological factors.” Giles et al., 2006
“Climbing in its purest form is engaged and focused movement with the breath. Climbing is complex in nature. Your psychology (perceptions and appraisals) influence your breathing which impacts how you climb. Your physiological responses (autonomic nervous system) influence your breathing which impacts how you climb. Your emotion and arousal levels impact climbing. Their interaction impacts the stress response which has an effect on your climbing. Breathing impacts the stress response. It can create more or less arousal.”
