Great information source for discovering new climbing concepts.

Eric provides a great variety of info at a very high quality level. The podcasts have solid audio quality and Eric has a nice tone and pace. I have used this podcast to discover training methods, supplements and tactics that have been a launching point for focused efforts to improve in climbing. Glad for this podcast.

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!

Good information buried in noise

The information on this podcast can be good, once he gets to it. The messaging could be much clearer and more to the point. In a recent podcast, he kept on repeating “again” — he knew he was repeating information, but either couldn’t or wouldn’t stop. In spent over 30 minutes waiting through his build up for about 5 minutes of good information.

Train Ooonnnnnnnn

Eric’s the man. Best podcast out there! I’ve listened to each episode a couple of times. Positive, informative, encouraging, and even relaxing. I couldn’t recommend more.

Just advertising now

Too bad all we here about is the book and his new collagen product. Unsubscribing.

Every climber needs to listen

I was pretty skeptical with some of the marketing of his products but there’s a lot of good science behind this and it’s been tested. I’m a connective tissue injury prone climber. After a week few days of his collegen product and protective training protocol though I could already notice an improvement in finger pain. It all takes time but it works.

Great information

If you are a climber looking to improve your knowledge and ability- look no further. Eric is an authority on proper training to maximize performance and minimize injury. As a middle aged dad- this is brilliant. Thanks Eric for what you do.

incredibly detailed, expertly explained

as someone with a background in healthcare, eric does a great job of synthesizing tons of complex research and explaining it to a broad, non-scientific audience without dumbing it down. he brings the information to your level of understanding but does not leave things out for simplicity of explanation - which is much appreciated. thanks eric!- nolan

Sixty minutes for five minutes of good info

Used to be sixty minutes for thirty minutes of good info back when he was merely hawking his books. (I own three—they’re good books, but that’s not the point). Now that he’s selling a collagen supplement, it’s five minutes of useful information on collagen supplementation and the rest is sales talk. (I bought his collagen supplement and use it happily because I think it will have a marginal benefit, but that’s not the point.). The point is this: there’s some good info in these podcasts, but it will take a lot of your time to get it.

Blatant salesmanship

Most recent pod comes across as poorly written ad copy. It follows the familiar formula... “Don’t believe what they say, there’s hope for you. I’ve been doing this research for two years. Others may have tried to sell you snake oil. We found a formula. This is what I do every day. The only way to improve. The only source for this breakthrough formula is my new website.”I want that hour back. Remember the first rule in nutrition supplements is there is no magic formula. Anyone who tries to sell you on one is a shill. I was quite enjoying listening to this guy but this one was such a turnoff that I don’t know if I can trust anything he says or if I’ll be turning on an infomercial when I’m looking for a podcast.

Good info

It’s awesome that Eric brings new information into the game. No other podcast is doing this and Eric is killing it. I took one star away though because he tends to ramble a lot about somewhat unrelated stuff, makes it hard to listen to sometimes. I’ll keep listening, but I might curate which episodes I choose because of this.

One of the most in-depth and cutting edge climbing podcasts regarding training and sport science

I have listened to nearly every episode at least twice these past few years. By far my favourite climbing related podcast. Getting into the nitty gritty of the sport science and always at the forfront of scientific research. Thank you Coach Hörst!

The Best Climbing Training Podcast

Hands down, this is the best climbing training podcast. Eric is very articulate in correlating scientific evidence to training methods. Eric always explains why you should do a particular training protocol. Keep up the good work and thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Awesome podcast!

Excellent technical information about training for climbing. Definitely has made my approach to training more intelligent and informed. After just a few months of listening and applying the info from this podcast, I’ve already experienced great gains - and the improvements feel way more sustainable than they ever have. I feel confident I’m on a solid trajectory to exceed my former peak!

Technical Coach broadens his Skillset

Eric's podcasts have allowed me to expand my coaching through a better integration energy system concepts with the technical coaching I'm known for in my community. I had been looking for a better way to give the athletes who trust me more advanced training in aspects of climbing I'm not as proficient at, and bionergentics appeared to be my primary weakness. Eric's podasts on Energy System Training have given me a better grounding in our sport's energy requirements. I highly recommend the series, though as Eric says, you may have to listen more than once. - Taylor
