Sweetest Send: Overlooked

Overlooked is a classic bouldering problem in New England.  It’s so classic because in one problem you have a bat hang, toe/heel cams, crimp, knee bar and with a top out overlooking the gorgeous water.  It’s really such a unique and cool problem…they call it the best V4 in New England for a reason! It’s…

SQUAMISH: first outdoor climbing trip

It was only 2 months ago I started getting stoked on climbing outside.  I did enjoy it before, but I was never so excited that I couldn’t wait to go back.  Well, I caught the outdoor rock climbing bug when I started projecting Sit Down Traverse and now I’m hooked! My beta sister Ju and…

SALMON LADDER CONQUERED!

FINALLY!! I can do the salmon ladder! A few months ago I was able to do 6 inch rungs which was good and all but the 1 foot rungs are the standard salmon ladder at all the comps and of course on the TV show.   And then not too long ago I was able…

B3 Boulder Brawl- Finals!

I participated in my first Finals in a climbing comp and my god it was hard! Everyone kept saying, “You signed up for Rec division? You should be in advanced.” The issue was the way it was set up- the divisions were that Rec were v0-4 and Advanced were v5-8.    I, like many of…

V6 Climbing Video

I haven’t been posting any new recipes because I haven’t been making anything new! I’ve been keeping it simple: lean meat, green veggies and brown rice at each meal.  Trying to go bodybuilding clean!  But will always have enjoy life meals as needed! This video below was a cool problem because of this one crazy…

Course testing for American Ninja Warrior

I just got back from a 4 day trip to California and it was INCREDIBLE! I flew to San Francisco first to participate in National Ninja League (NNL) Finals since I qualified from TA’s ninja comp a month ago.  I only qualified because I was a woman and everyone else competing already qualified, so it…

My first Ninja Warrior competition

I participated in my first ninja warrior competition this Saturday.  It was a lot of fun and kinda a life changing experience in the sense that I can’t believe I was doing it.  I remember not too long ago when I saw the show, I really thought these people were superheroes.  I remember being completely…

ALEX PUCCIO and Dark Horse comp!

I had an amazing time at the final round of the Dark Horse competition last night! It was my most successful comp to date.  And by successful, I mean it was a personal victory.   In all the comps I’ve done, I’m generally in top 3 of intermediate (except one time I totally bombed and…

Hard move V8

I have so enjoyed projecting this v8- not because I think I can do the problem but because I so love working on some of these really cool crux moves.  This one move below took me HOURS to get- to match on this side pull is insanely difficult!!! Then getting your leg into the knee…

Christmas Week Workout highlights

This week leading up to Christmas has been very successful in terms of my workouts! My HITT workouts with Zuzu has plyometrics exercises so it’s really helping my fast-twitch muscles for dynos! I already see progress in my jumping in dynos. I did limit bouldering and 4x4s this week- it was killer for my forearms! Info about…

American Ninja Warrior Training

I LOVE the show American Ninja Warrior because the first time I saw it, I really thought these people were superhuman.  I legit thought what they did was insanely impossible and as cool as it looked, it would never be me. But then I started rock climbing and developed my upper body strength further and the…

Dark Horse Climbing Comp

I had an excellent time last night at the Dark Horse Climbing comp! This one was at MetroRock at Newburyport.  I really enjoyed the setting and the variety of problems.  There was one green one that I tried so many times and failed but finally got it in the last 15 minutes! It’s so like…
