Dynos, also called, “dynamic movements” (but how can a movement not be considered dynamic) consist of all those movements that are done at a high velocity (be it on a boulder wall, a climbing wall, or crag).Technically they are important because they require the use of co-ordination skills and at the same time train them.Physically they are essential because they efficiently train one’s strength. Both the impulse I give as I set off for the dyno to the way I absorb the shock of the arrival, are highly stimulating, even though potentially dangerous.Therefore I will execute dyno movements in training, not because I do so in climbing, but simply because they increase my power.


Dyno type 1

Dyno type 2

Dyno type 3

Two handed dyno


It is important to end the dynamic movement by holding the hold with a slightly bentarm (or arms if it is a two armed dyno) to absorb the shock on arrival. It is important not to end the movement with the elbow’s articulation stretched out as I would stop my body from the inevitable mechanical descent, by not undergoing an eccentric contraction (therefore the stimulus would not be training the appropriate muscles) but also because I would stop my body with my shoulder joint (risk of dislocating my shoulder).
