Down to business

Other climbing podcasts about training meander through interviews where you have to listen for hours for that golden nugget that can help you. Not so with Hörsts podcast. He clearly plans them out to deliver the info you need in a applicable package. More like a training audiobook than a podcast, and I mean that in the best way possible

Any serious climber needs to listen to these

Eric Hörst does a phenomenal job with these podcasts. I feel lucky that these are free and available to everyone. He has great training advice and ideas and talks through how to implement them. His energy system training is a GAME CHANGER for any serious climber wanting to take this sport to the next level. I listen to these podcasts while mowing the lawn, riding my bike, and cooking food. Many of the you need to listen to multiple times to get all the information out of. I also enjoy how Eric’s books follow along with what he says in the podcast (reading his books and listening to the podcast is the best way to learn). I have emailed Eric through his nicros website and he responded quickly just like he says he will try to in podcast. I think it is very kind of him to respond to personal emails from climbers that are no where near pro status. I greatly respect Eric and all that he does. I feel like if I ever ran into him at the crag he would be incredibly friendly. Thanks for doing what your doing Eric. We all appreciate it!
