Onsight vs. Redpoint

The bouldering & route workouts use 'Onsight' and 'Redpoint' grades to help all levels of user choose the right level to train at. 

Here is what is meant by those terms:

 

Regular Onsight Level 
The grade of a route or boulder you are confident you can nearly always climb first go without falling when you are feeling fully rested. You can't have tried the route before or watched anyone else try it. This should still feel like an effort for you. 
 
Maximum Onsight Level 
The grade of the hardest route or boulder that you can only just manage to climb without falling first go when feeling fully rested. Again, you can't have tried it before or watched anyone else try it. 
 
Regular Redpoint Level 
The grade of a route or boulder that you can complete after practising the moves in one session in about 1 to 3 tries. You can try the moves as much as you like and watch anyone else try it but you must be able to complete it in one push without falling or resting.
 
Maximum Redpoint Level 
- The absolute maximum grade of a route or boulder that you can complete after practising the moves in one or even two sessions in over 3 tries. You can try the moves as much as you like and watch anyone else try it but you must be able to complete it in one push without falling or resting.
 
Please note these grades need to apply to how you are currently climbing not how well you may have climbed in the past.

Workouts

Why workouts? ClimbCoach works by taking users through pre-defined workouts step-by-step. There's a good reason for choosing to do it that way. ClimbCoach workouts are based on fundamental sport scrience principles which define a certain amount of exercises, sets, reps and rest times in order to achieve a certain  physiological goal. 

By doing this we also hope that ClimbCoach makes training easier for climbers and boulderers - meaning they don't have to devise, plan and record these exercises.
