Strength Training for Injury Prevention: Plank Double-Knee Drives

This exercise challenges you to keep a stable core while your hips are both flexed and extended. Being able to maintain this core stability translates to climbing by allowing you more time to correct your footwork and improve your technique. This improves your chances for success on technical or overhanging routes, and can limit both the flexion- and extension-based overuse injuries that occur from fatigue and poor footwork.
