TBP 061 :: Jonathan Siegrist's Minimal Training Regime and Meticulous Skin Care
7 days ago
About Jonathan Siegrist Jonathan Siegrist (or J-Star) is a 31-year-old professional rock climber from Boulder, Colorado. He grew up with his ever-psyched climbing dad, Bob Siegrist, trying to get him to love the sport as much as he did. He didn't really take to it until his late teens, though. Since then, he's become one of the world's most prolific sport climbers. To date, he's climbed four 5.15a's, sixteen 5.14d's and hundreds of other 5.14s. He's also bouldered up to V14, sent sketchy PG-13 and R-rated trad climbs, and has sent 5.14 trad big walls. (Read his recent write-up on Arc-teryx about his ascent of Direct Dunn Westbay, a 5.14 multi-pitch route at 13,400 feet in Rocky Mountain National Park). He's also bolted a bunch of routes of all grades in Colorado, Idaho, and beyond. Besides all that, he's one of my best friends, and I think he's one of the most motivated, positive climbers I've ever met. Aside from being an incredible climber, his genuine gratitude for life and hunger for adventure are admirable.

Not just training - Best climber interviews too
This podcast is interview-based with a focus on training, but is filled with fascinating information on the lives of adventure of professional climbers. This show is filled with world class guests. They share some deeply personal information about themselves and provide invaluable advice for other climbers.
The host is extremely well prepared. She asks relevant questions, specific questions that go deep. She channels her inner Terry Gross and asks hard questions, even uncomfortable ones, but in a way that doesn't seem too offensive. This makes a one hour interview fly by.
This podcast is for all climbers. Beginners who want to improve their training methods, advanced climbers who want to improve their mental game, and just anyone who is interested in the world of professional climbing athletes.
