About Me

<p>Skimble is an interesting tool; I originally started using it as a means to have a training diary with stats and a decent record of my training. That didn't work. In fact, I find Skimble often slow and clunky to use and upload data to.<br><br>BUT what it has been really good at doing is providing me with the motivation to coontinually try harder to beat my previous best scores while working in an organised way. The stats that are useful are the ACTIVITY POINTS BY WEEK... basically I can look at the points I have accumulated over the previous weeks and ensure that I am following a healthy upwards progression with time for recovery (you need to understand periodisation to get that bit)<br><br><br>I am stronger and fitter and performing better in my chosen sports because of the competitive nature of Skimble.      <br><br><br>I can compete with me, and I can compete with others, all of which makes me work harder and smarter.<br><br>I find the leaderboard motivating, it keeps me honest.<br><br>I have recently decided to not bother too much with recording exactly what exercises I do as it's both annoying and the available exercises are very limited. But the point allocation is honest (I have a good knowledge of how Skimble attributes points) and fair. I don't "double dip" with points and never accrue points for something I have not done.   <br>    <br>For anyone interested in what I do or how I work out, message me and I am happy to chat. I have a large body of knowledge in sports and fitness as well as coaching and performance on all levels including physiology, psychology, nutrition and tactics.<br><br>Cheers, <br><br>Adam.<br><br> P.S. See below for a brief bio :)   <br><br><br><br><br>      I'm a climber, mostly trad, but also sport, deep water solo, solo and gym and bouldering for training.<br><br>I live in Adelaide, South Australia which is a really great place to work and climb with great quality rock 15 minutes from the city centre.<br><br>I also scuba, kayak and mountain bike.<br><br>An interesting achievement is that I have competed in National Titles in four different sports: Dragon Boat Racing, Marathon Kayak, Bouldering and Single Speed Mountain Bike.<br><br>The best times are away on trips with my wife, baby Oscar and our friends. The best trip recently was two weeks at Arapiles (and then scuba diving and other sports during the other two weeks) in February - I took the whole month off for my birthday which I can highly recommend.<br><br>Europe two years ago was THE highlight of all trips with bouldering in Fontainbleu and then climbing on Elbsandstein (Sandstone Pinnacles along the Elbe) on knotted slings. Simply amazing.<br><br> </p>

I've been a terrible Skimbler of late, it's mostly because my workouts are so complex and big and, well there's normally two or three each day. But I thought I'd post that recently I competed at National Titles and came 5th :)
