RUN: Getting a fast start is absolutely necessary – as it takes immense training to instantly sprint. The idea is to use the weight of your body as inertia to plant your feet down in the ideal spots. This important step is then transitioned to a jumping motion.
JUMP: From your jump, the contestant’s weight is shifted to gain height. This jumping motion is crucial to get as much of the wall under your feet as possible. When jumping, think of yourself as a frog – leaping from one distant rock to another.
GRIP: With arms stretched all the way overhead, that’s when the upper body’s strength is tested. The idea is to get a solid grip with two hands and pull yourself up to the top. If you can get all three of these principles performed in one fluid motion, the Warped Wall is conquered.
