Training Beta Podcast: Eric Hörst on Training for Climbers over Age 35

In this Training Beta podcast, Eric Hörst details the keys to effective training for climbers over age 35. Learn powerful tips for strength gains, enhanced recovery, and elevating performance into the “masters” years.

As climbers enter their later years, a defined training and recovery regimen becomes crucial for staying injury-free and continuing to perform at a high level. In this podcast, Eric provides useful training and recovery tips for older climbers. The nitty-gritty details and metrics provided in this podcast may just be the differentiating factor for your training and performance.

Embracing change and taking proactive countermeasures as you get older will allow you to climb at a high level well into your later years, if done right. Older climbers in their 40s, 50s and 60s, who strive to climb as hard or as much as they did in their 20s, will benefit from a curated training and recovery plan.

Changes to your training schedule, diet, and daily routine are imperative as your body transforms with age. By making necessary adjustments, older climbers can counteract the physical disadvantages of aging.

Some key takeaways from the podcast include:

  • Proper warm-up strategy
  • Daily activity (outside of climbing)
  • Resistance training
  • Knowing when to stop, and picking and choosing the right high intensity exercises
  • Nutrition and diet

As with any goal-driven climber, there are many angles to consider when looking into longevity and performance in climbing. Listen in and fill in the gaps for your own training formula!
