Board Meetings | Extra Effort vs. Overtraining

Giving that extra bit of effort can make all the difference, but there is a thin line between that and overdoing it. It's a frustrating topic to find any real information on. In this episode, Nate and I explore this line.

Caroline Wickes | Eating Disorders

Eating disorders and disordered eating are a real, but often hidden problem in the sport of climbing, and many of us unwittingly perpetuate the idea that less weight is better. In this episode, Caroline Wickes and I sit down to discuss her personal experiences with eating disorders, as well as the things she learned while researching for her Climbing Magazine article, Weighing In: Does Climbing Need an Eating Disorder Intervention?
