Dmitri Tcherbadji 10 December 2014 Believe it or not, rock climbing saved me. Generally staying in shape and dedicating an appropriate amount of time is dedicated to keeping the whole body healthy no matter the deadlines is super important. Rock climbing is a sport heavily dependant on finger strength. Working those muscles out adds to their strength, generates enormous amounts of blood flow that you need to repair and gives them a different sort of motion – developing strength and agility. But don’t forget to stretch, especially your chest and shoulders as that’s where rock climbing will create a lot of tension. Literally the same exact thing happened to me as described in the article, thankfully it only lasted 2-4 weeks.
