comment Muscle imbalances related to indoor rock climbing/bouldering and ways to fix them
Climbing creates shoulder Imballances for sure. Particularly if you climb steep rock, or in the gum. Shoulder is the most unstable joint in the body.

I'm 42 years old, and almost every top climber of my generation has strong roots in Hueco winters and Yosemite summers.

I just moved to Boulder, which is -- to be on-topic -- the best single way to improve your climbing. Great place for software devs too.

That's a good one Dave. I've never done it, but I'll check it out. I'm all about the technical stuff these days. I'm even considering checking out one of those "dance" climbing groups. I don't find it aestheticly appealing, but it probably improves your quality of movement a lot. Nice to see a struts2 person over on the climbing side ;)

I don't mean to diss this answer, the technique and footwork element is excellent. But the grippers are not very helpful in my opinion. The biggest knock is that they don't at all adhere to specificity principle of training. Most climbing literature these days even goes so far as to point out that training contact strength of hands on one type of holds doesn't even apply to contact strength on another type of hold. So, grippers certainly seem dubious in this light.
