Charlie sat down with Kris Hampton for an enlightening conversation on the challenges of trying to do many sports and do them well.
In this episode I sit down with strength coach, climber, and multisport athlete Charlie Manganiello, from ClimbStrong, to find out how we can all perform in multiple sports. Charlie takes a common sense, no bullshit approach to his training and performance, and even though I’ve chosen to dedicate my energy completely to climbing, I appreciate that candor.
We can’t all climb all the time, and some of us choose not to, even if we could, so we can all learn a little about planning and expectations from this conversation with Charlie. Even if you’re only switching from sport climbing to bouldering, like I do, there is a different approach required, and Charlie’s philosophies are applicable.
