Lots of weight and lots of working on one arms.
Getting there with a little bit of a kip.
For an Instructional video on how to build those pinch blocks follow the link in my bio.

xchrissimmonsx Come to crossfit she said, it will be fun she said....
We had to do our name for the workout, each letter corresponded with an exercise, as you can see burpees are my best friend.
Re-fueling up with some @gnarlynutrition feast and some other goodies in a smoothie.

xchrissimmonsx I'm getting so close to doing one arms with these. Obviously doing a one arm isn't necessarily a sign of climbing hard or whatever but it is something a lot of climbers like to pull out as a party trick of sorts, so I've been working on them periodically.
Here I am using the pinch blocks that I made (link in bio on how to make them) and a small @atomikclimbingholds bomb to take a majority of my weight and isolate it to one arm, doing these just for 2 weeks I can see the gains already and I will be keeping it in my daily exercise routine.

xchrissimmonsx Got in a solid work out early in the garage this morning, light climbing to get loose, then I threw the bar around and did some body weight stuff to finish it off.
Also took a full pull of supplements to help me get though it, as I've been seriously slacking lately. a little @gnarlynutrition pump to kick things off, some BCAAs during and then to reward myself after @lennyandlarrys these cookies pack in 16 grams of protein, a perfect treat after a work out. Now to go to work

xchrissimmonsx Got a chance to step away from the @outdoorretailer show last week and swooped a quick session @thefrontslc
Exited to see the new facility after the major additions being made.
I ended the session on their woody with some super OG holds, always fun to pull on old plastic.

  •   fredliveshigh Hey Chris! I have real respect for your climbing career! You've been an inspiration for myself to try and become a pro. I was wondering if you had any advice for approaching a potential sponsor? Thanks, helps a lot! :) 2w
  •   xchrissimmonsx @fredliveshigh thank you so much for the compliments. Well it looks like your getting pretty strong. Obviously keep climbing as much as possible, including comps and outdoors. Make yourself as accessible as possible and a positive role model for people to look at, those are maybe the most important things companies look for, and then a simple email or getting to know the right company is all. But over all things, have fun! Without fun, why would we be climbing anyways? 2w
  •   merlinmoonsantam Amazing&hellip 2w
  •   fredliveshigh Thanks a lot Chris! Really helpful advice! :) I'll be sure to do this. Keep crushing! :D 2w

xchrissimmonsx Got a chance to swing by and tour the @gnarlynutrition office today with @gnarlyczar and @dbjphoto before we headed back to AZ.
And of course we loaded up on whey and BCAAs because #winteriscoming and it's time to train!

  •   xchrissimmonsx @danequits I wish I could grow a beard like you 3w
  •   ladycharleston Thank you so much for the promo code and for sharing your experience. I totally agree with you. I usually have a glass of BCAAs before training, and with it I feel much more concentrated during and not as exhausted afterwards. The last ones we had were definitely too sweet for my taste though, so I guess I'll give gnarly a try :-) 3w
  •   xchrissimmonsx @ladycharleston no worries! Let me know how you like them 3w
  •   ladycharleston I will! Thanks again :-) 3w
  •   jmang888 Hey Chris I've been following you for a while now and am interested in trying out gognarly nutrition. I hear your the man to talk to for a promo code for climbers. Anything helps man! 2w
  •   jmang888 Ahh I found it thank you! 2w
  •   xchrissimmonsx @jmang888 okay good! Climblikechris if you want some ideas, I'd go whey and BCAAs for sure! Chocolate is my favorites as well. Let me know how you end up liking them! 2w

xchrissimmonsx I was lucky enough to take a hard hat tour of the new @thefrontslc climbing gym.
This place is massive! 70 foot walls, 3 stories of climbing, training, teaching, yoga and a cafe.
Hyped for this place to open in October!
