Upon getting back into rock climbing after a 17 year hiatus, I quickly discovered Mark & Mike Anderson's contribution to training for the sport in the form of The Rock Climber's Training Manual.
After reading through it I realized that these guys were demonstrating more than just an interest in training, this is total "pursuit of excellence" material.
In this episode of the Paleo Treats podcast we talk about where they learned about hard work, why climbing satisfies so many human cravings, and what stops most climbers from becoming better.
This is definitely not a "sets and reps" episode; if you're looking for specific training advice, buy the book. :) However, if you're looking for practical examples of what works to improve anything, not just climbing, you'll find enough in here to inspire and encourage you to do the very best you can in whatever endeavor you engage in.
