Gimme Kraft is a no-nonsense, content-rich book about effective training for climbing. On 230 pages you will find about 80 specific exercises for bouldering wall, rings, slingtrainer, floor and minibar, campus board, sloper rails, pegboard and pull-up bar, as well as mobility exercises and 10 "pro tips" from some of the world's best climbers.

This highly anticipated exercise book comes from Nuremberg, Germany, the birth place of modern training for climbing. It was here that the legendary Wolfgang Güllich invented Campus Training and, at the nearby Frankenjura, established the world’s first 5.14d/9a, Action Directe. The rich tradition of hard climbing that began with Kurt Albert (the father of the “redpoint”) and Güllich continues today with young guns like Jan Hojer, Juliane Wurm, and young phenom Alex Megos, who recently achieved the world’s first 5.14d/9a onsight ascent!
What is the secret of these incredible climbers? It’s their “gimme kraft” (give me strength!) mentality of training in smart, effective ways that equally develops power through the entire chain of pulling muscles from the fingers to the core. Trainers Dicki Korb and Patrick Matros have spent years refining and improving the well-known climbing exercises of the past as well as developing new exercises and power-training techniques. These amazing trainers have packaged their techniques into the Gimme Kraft book and DVD.
Please note that Gimme Kraft is not a beginners’ book. While some of the exercises can be performed by novices, this text is written for experienced climbers who have already mastered basic climbing techniques and possess a solid base level of fitness. For the more advanced climber, however, this book serves up dozens of effective exercises that you can pick and choose from - and cycle through - for many years of powerful climbing to come!
The book comes with a DVD featuring brief demonstrations of key exercises as well as interviews with several top climbers. A bonus is the interview with Wolfgang Güllich's former professor Mr. Weineck.
