Benefits of climbing

by Tom Markiewicz on March 30, 2006

I ran across an article today on the physical and health benefits of climbing at Here’s an excerpt:

“Engaging in a physical activity like rock climbing can tip the balance of a person’s calories consumed versus calories burned,” said Professor Frank Powell of Furman University’s Health and Exercise Sciences Department. “With that kind of exercise and moderating your diet, it’s certainly possible that it will have a significant effect.”

“Because of the nature of climbing, a person’s strength-to-body-weight ratio is a good predictor of success,” Powell said. “Slighter-built people do better than more ponderous ones, so as soon as a climber starts to lose some excess weight, they find out that they’re more agile on the rocks and making better climbs, and then they start to say, ‘OK, I’ve got to be more selective with my diet if I want the energy to be able to do what I love.’ “

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
