So when you're bouldering, a lot of the motion gets pretty complex, some of the moves can be pretty involved. So right now I'm going to share with you five advanced techniques, some moves that you might not always think about, but some pretty interesting ways to kind of use your body and coordinate some motion.
The first example is something called a rose move, and a rose move is when you actually open away from the walls, that your hips are facing in a different direction. Often times the way the holds are laid out on the wall will dictate whether or not these types of moves are going to be necessary. So the rose move would be when my left hand was here, and I'm crossing underneath with my right hand, turning my hips away from the wall.
Another example of an advanced technique will be what's known as a knee bar. A knee bar is when you're using not necessarily your knee, but more commonly the to of your thigh, and you're going to use that thigh and your foot to really create some opposition and allow your body to really be weighted on just that knee bar, and the tension that you're getting between those two points. So right there you'll notice I can take all my body weight and place it right here on this knee bar with my left foot really pushing and getting that thigh up against that hold, which allows me to turn this corner.
One other technique would be similar to using a toe hook, except you're using two toe hooks at the same time, which is also known as a bat hang. In this instance, a bat hang allows me to make this change in angle and complete this transition. So that would be a bat hang.
Another technique is something known as a bicycle, and a bicycle is where you're using the bottom side of your toe and the top of your toe, which would be a toe hook, at the same time to basically squeeze one hold or two holds together to create that same sense of opposition, almost like closing a vice. So right here I'll use a bicycle on this yellow hold to keep both of my feet up, keep my body in position. So in this position, you can see one leg is pulling, the other leg is pushing the whole time, I have my core involved to help keep those legs up, my body in position. That's how you use a bicycle.
The final move here is something known as a drop knee. The drop knee is a great way to kind of lower your center of gravity, and keep it in your base of support, which are the contact points you have with the wall. When your center of gravity is lower, your base of support, it makes you more stable, more capable of doing a move slowly, with a bit more control. So to get into the drop knee, I'll place my left foot on this hold, and then literally turn my knee in, dropping it down, and twisting up. That drop knee allows you to really keep your center of gravity nice and low within your base of support, making your body nice and balanced and stable, really allows you to suck that hip in nice and close to the wall, to get a little bit of extra reach out of that whole system.
And those are a couple of advanced bouldering techniques you might encounter here in the gym.
Excuses aren't getting you anywhere, I know you are referencing the whole kinematic lever-arm principle, but if you have shorter legs bat hangs are harder. It doesn't necessarily equate total height bruh.
I do too. It's just really satisfying to see someone doing relatively rare techniques when most gyms don't have problems that allow you to use them - or they put these kinds of moves on a V9 and everyone else is stuck piddling around with strengthy problems with basic technique.
Well the thing is, there are many options for each scenario, and a lot of the time you can complete the same problem in a variety of different ways. There isn't a "right" answer, he is just showing you more options.
That is a good comment. I was thinking the same myself, as in it would be good to know what he was actually reaching for and how it would not be possible without this technique. Also, showing a couple of other options people naturally would try, so we can see how we need to break out of that way of thinking.

Someone attained through countless generations of environmental influence.
To segregate and partition fellow human beings is an evil act. Especially when talking of something as insignificant as skin pigment.
I don't expect to speak any sense to someone of your gall, but I hope you know that the majority of servicemen and women of both the UK and the US like me welcome people of all race. This goes for the vast majority of regular citizens of the US and UK.
Being white does not mean being superior.
To believe this is darwinistic and ignorant beyond human realization.
Peace & Love brother.
I would think the ability to do a one-armer does give you an advantage because of the lock-off/isometric strength that comes with it. So while you might never need to actually pull yourself up from one point of contact, the underlying strength can be important on some really overhanging holds and things like that.
Often we hear anti-whites use the term "minorities" used to refer to Africans, Indians, ect
But In 1900 my people, white people, comprised 33% of world population, today we are at 9% and dropping like a rock. Not only are we a minority in the world but because of immigration & assimilation in EVERY white country and ONLY white countries our children are poised to be minorities IN OUR OWN COUNTRIES within a few decades.
This is genocide. This is evil and this must stop!
