How to do a traverse wall

Video Tutorial

Struggling with this obstacle? Check out this video which shows you my technique to safely and quickly complete it.

With all the techniques I use, I'm always looking to use my largest muscle groups (legs) rather than just my arms. If you can take anything away from our videos, let it be this question - 'how can I use my biggest muscles to complete it?'

I hope you found this useful. If you interested in booking a technique master class with me, please click here to check out my master classes.
