I think training is the term generally used to indicates the steps of preparation for a competition:

  • activity leading to skilled behavior. (The Free Dictionary)

From (www.indoorclimbing.com)

Overhanging, negative sloping and long-reach moves = Strength training; "dynos", speed climbing = Burst / Explosive Power Training; high or long runs requiring continuous climbing for over five minutes = Endurance Training; "lock-off", long leads requiring difficult clipping, sustained power without burnout plus long routes and duration of climb = Strength-Endurance Training. After you have defined the type of training you need, begin a specific training plan that focuses on this training. See Training Plans for more information.
