About Will Anglin

Will Anglin is a 27 year-old climber and head climbing trainer at Earth Treks in Golden, CO. He minored in Exercise Physiology in college, he’s a certified personal trainer, and he’s studied climbing training quite a bit. He trains people in person and online, and he writes about training on his blog. One of the reasons I wanted to interview him is that he’s not only a well-respected trainer, but also a prolific climber himself, having sent V13 and 5.14.

He has a lot to say about training, and this was a dense conversation (in the best way possible).

What We Talked About

  • The importance of strength training
  • Difference between strength and power
  • His weekly training schedule during 50-60 hour work weeks
  • Whether or not you should train to exhaustion
  • Why he thinks using a weight vest during campusing is “safer” than not
  • Who should be campusing
  • Why he does weighted pull ups and why you should maybe not

Things We Mentioned

Discount on ArmAid

armAid1If you haven’t heard of the ArmAid yet, definitely give it a look-see. It’s a nutcracker-type self-massage tool for your poor, overused arms, and it actually works.

We wrote a glowing review about it here.  Use the code “climb” at checkout for a 10% discount!
