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.
