Great climbing podcast
This is only podcast I binge listen from start to end already twice. Its packed with great explanations of conceptce and knowlage.
Undoubtably one of most knowledgable coaches across the sports these days! Instead of blindly pushing for results coach Horst is valuing enjoyment od life and being at the rocks, injury free training, balanced work/family/climb life - that is getting very rare these days...Thank you for that, Eric!😉
