Episode 199: Old Dog, New Ticks with Kris Hampton

On Episode 199 of the Enormocast, my coach, Kris Hampton, and I talk about what its been like to try and train a crusty curmudgeon like me. Since adulting hit me hard in the last couple years and Carbondale got its first real climbing gym, I came up with a plan to actually train for real after 30 years of climbing. Kris was a bit ambivalent, but once I showed my commitment, he turned the considerable resources at Power Company Climbing toward turning me into a MACHINE. In this episode of the Enormocast, we discuss the ups and downs of coming to training from a climbing life of mostly ignoring a set physical program in lieu of “just going climbing”. Hopefully, we inspire those of you simply dabbling with your hangboard or even if you are just threatening to be a threat in the gym. And if you already train like a fiend, maybe you’ll get a good chuckle at my puny efforts.
