    Episode #41 - Personalized Nutrition for Training and Performance

    If you're serious about training and climbing your best, then you must be serious about performance nutrition. The foods you consume play a central role in energy production, training adaptations, muscle recovery, connective tissue health, and your strength-to-weight ratio. Combined, these nutritional influences are nearly as significant as the influence of your training program--and, if you get both your training and nutrition right, then a powerful synergy will elevate your performance to a new level!

    Episode #40: Blood Flow Restriction Training for Climbers

    The focus of this podcast is Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training. This training modality has been around for decades but has only been recently popularized by some physiotherapists and coaches. Among climbers, perhaps no one is more knowledgable on this topic than Dr. Tyler Nelson, so I invited Tyler to join me for this podcast. In this 40-minute interview, we'll explore the different BFR training protocols, and how BFR training may be a beneficial intervention for injured and healthy climbers alike.
