Today we're officially releasing our new "Proven Plans," an option that lands between our simple eBooks and our completely individual customized plans. These "Proven Plans" allow you to work with us in our mobile app, and they allow us to give you customizations and drills that aren't available in our eBooks. The eBooks are extremely popular - and for good reason - but many of us need a little more personal interaction and something slightly more customized. The "Proven Plans" answer that question.
Our coach Blake Cash does most of the work with clients in the "Proven Plan" system. Here, we discuss the plans, how they came about, where their value lies, and what we've learned from them.

We don't tweet. We scream like eagles.
When we get geographically close to the top of a boulder, we believe that means we're close to the send. Sometimes yes. Oftentimes, no.
Part three: My training in Decemeber and January, how I spent my time in Hueco to keep preparing myself for sport climbing, and what I’m doing from here.
This will be a review of 2018 in regards to goals, training, climbing, numbers, injuries, and lessons.
We live in an age of fast food bouldering. Gym boulders are turned over more frequently than ever before. Hop on the Moonboard and you can try 2,500 different v7’s before you have to move on to v8.
Adam Ondra’s commentary on his legendary onsight, along with thoughts from a coach’s perspective.
It’s been a wonderful pump-free five years, but that time has come to an end.
As I switch back to sport climbing as my primary focus, I feel like this is a good time to reflect on and share some lessons I’ve learned over the past few years and talk on some things I’m having to relearn.
For this Board Meeting, Nate and I sit down with our good friend Dru Mack to discuss something that we are all far too well versed in: The 5 most common redpoint pitfalls that we see climbers get trapped in.
Even though we can see that there are tangible benefits, few of us ever put in the time to improve our mental game.
My perception of what I was capable of, what could be possible, how hard I can push myself, the belief, the confidence, was all very much changed through a mere three weeks of training.
“Learn how to train, then train hard, then train smart. Most people will never have to go past step two.”
If you've heard of Justin Salas, you may refer to him as a "blind climber." You'd be wrong. He's a climber who just happens to be blind, just like you're a climber who just happens to have sight.
Russ Clune has climbed in more places than you. Climbing since the late 70's, and in more than 50 different countries, I wanted to know what the legendary Clune had learned from climbers of other cultures, and how he's applied that to his own climbing.
It's a new year, and it's our 2nd birthday! In this episode, Nate and I talk goal setting. Not resolutions; goals. Different animals altogether.
At a time when we're seeing a whole new generation of young crushers becoming adults, the role of the parent has become more and more important. Constance Lightner is, in my mind, a perfect representative for climbing parents.
No, that isn't a typo. It would be amazing if we kept all our attributes forever, but the reality is that we lose things, we forget things, and we just stop doing some of the things that made us good to begin with.
How often do you give 100%? REALLY give 100%? I make my living coaching climbers, and I seldom see a climber try their hardest. Myself included.
In this episode Dr. Shannon O'Grady and I discuss the hot button topic of protein. Why do we need it, how much we need, and what's the best way to get it.
In this episode, we go deep into the world of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) with Dr. Shannon O'Grady, Ph.D., Director of Product at Gnarly Nutrition. We talk about what they are, why we need them, how to use them, and more.
If you want to be physically prepared for rock climbing, you need to concern yourself with the following components:
In this episode, Nate, Paul, Blake, and I discuss the Top 2 ways we break through plateaus. Whether it's mental or physical, unless you're a mutant, you've gotten stuck. Well, we have some advice.
If there is a polar opposite of "nutritionist," I'm it. I blank out immediately when talking the details of nutrition. Not so with our guest today, Neely Quinn.
Jon Glassberg recently wrote a blog for La Sportiva in which he states that, “Climbing double digits is an attainable goal for any serious climber.” We agree.
Honorary Cohost Steve Bechtel has a new book out: "Logical Progression: Using Non Linear Periodization for Year Round Climbing Performance." If you write your own training plans, and still have a hard time sticking to your plan, this is the book for you.

In this Board Meeting, Nate and I discuss strategies and tactics for redpointing. Some you may know, many you may not. Most you've probably forgotten or ignored when you needed them.
LEGEND! Not much more needs to be said about this week's guest, Stevie Haston, but I'll say a few more things anyway. Simply put, Stevie Haston is a machine. A simple, hard working, sensible machine.
In this episode, I sit down with strength coach, climber, and multisport athlete Charlie Manganiello, from ClimbStrong, to find out how we can all perform in multiple sports. Even if you're only switching from sport climbing to bouldering, Charlie's philosophies are applicable.
For quite some time I've toyed with the idea of "in-between" episodes. So while on our recent workshop tour, Nate and I sat down and figured out a rough format for a new concept. And thus "The Board Meetings" were born.
It's that time again. Soon we'll be 14 or so weeks out from the best temps at climbing areas all over the world, which means that if you want to be better prepared this season, the time to start planning your training is NOW.
Breaking in a new pair, putting shoes on when you have a blister or cut on your foot, or dealing with hot spots from shoes that don’t fit perfectly can all be very uncomfortable, and can make climbing miserable.
