Russ Clune has climbed in more places than you. That is, unless you're Brittany Griffith (maybe). 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. His climbing partners are a who's who list of legends: Wolfgang Güllich, Lynn Hill, Patrick Edlinger, Jerry Moffat, Todd Skinner, Ron Kauk, and many others. Russ not only fed off of their abilities, but took note of their tactics and their approach.
Travel is one of the most important and easiest ways to improve as a climber. It doesn't need to be to some far off exotic place. That scrappy limestone cliff in the backwoods can be a perfect place to learn a new technique.

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.
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 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.
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.
Today we're officially releasing our new "Proven Plans," an option that lands between our simple eBooks and our completely individual customized plans. Coach Blake Cash and I discuss the plans, how they came about, where their value lies, and what we've learned from them.
