In this episode, we talk with honorary co-host Steve Bechtel and his co-author Charlie Manganiello about their new resource, "The Climb Strong Deadlifting Manual." They tell us why deadlifting is the number one bang-for-your-buck exercise for strength training for climbers, and give us some background on the how, why, and when.
For me, and for the seasoned deadlifter, the book is not only a great refresher, but a good resource of how to incorporate the deadlift into your climbing, particularly some great ideas concerning programming. If you haven't deadlifted before, this is the practical guide to getting started. These guys are both climbers, and this book is directed toward climbers, NOT toward lifters. As with everything else that Climb Strong does, it's to the point, easy to read, and easy to put into action.

In Episode 6, we sit down with listener favorite Steve Bechtel at his gym in Lander, Wyoming, and talk about the question everyone always seems to be asking, "Will running help my climbing?"
I sit down with Steve Bechtel at his gym in Lander, Wyoming, to talk resistance training for climbers. Yes, lifting weights. No, you won't get swole. Yes, you should do it. But enough of that. Just listen.
While I've not yet had the opportunity to read either of these books, I definitely plan to (and review them),but I wanted to give you guys and girls the heads up so that you can get your hands on them at the start of this training season.
