Supplements for Sport Climbing

This is a continually updated page. If you’re curious about a supplement I haven’t yet covered, feel free to bring it to my attention via the contact form on the About page.

Interested in which supplements will measurably improve your sport climbing performance and which ones will not? Read on! This guide separates out every supplement I’ve written a guide for in terms of how they will affect sport climbers (and trad climbers, too).

  • Highly Recommended means the supplement is well-supported by evidence and has a relatively large effect.
  • Recommended means the supplements is well-supported by evidence but only a minor effect.
  • Optional means the supplement is less well-supported by evidence (and doesn’t have strong evidence against) but could be worthwhile.
  • NOT Recommended means the supplement has strong evidence against its efficacy or provides an undesirable effect.
