TBP 064 :: Dan Mirsky on BD Bootcamp Success and Becoming A Trainer
2 days ago
About Dan Mirsky Dan Mirsky is an understated crusher. I’ve been watching him gracefully take down rock climbs all over the country for the last 10 years. In 2013, we witnessed his fitness (literally) in The Red when we were next door neighbors at Lago Linda’s. And then a few months later he was kind enough to show us around The Cathedral/Wailing Wall, giving Seth and me encyclopedic beta on the entire crag from the ground. He chucked a couple laps on Golden (14b) that day right after sending Route of All Evil (14a) in the Virgin River Gorge that morning. Mirsky is PSYCHED to climb and psyched to see others succeed. He’s a bright-eyed, happy, almost boyish guy with a sneaky sense of humor and a willingness to get a little crazy with friends. He knows everything about the places he climbs because he’s obsessed with all things climbing. He’s sent 30+ 5.14’s up to 5.14c, having taken down The Crew (14c), 50 Words for Pump (14b), Bad Girls Club (14c), Lungfish (14b), and lots of other hard stuff, including an FA of Solid Gold (14c), the direct line to Golden (read his “The Day I Sent Solid Gold” from EveningSends.com). Dan Mirsky Interview Details Last year, Dan did the Black Diamond Bootcamp with Joe Kinder and Sam Elias, and he experienced some serious gains on actual rock because of it. Because of that success and his newfound psych for training in a structured way, he took a job as a trainer in Salt Lake City at The Training Room at The Front. In this second interview with Dan Mirsky we talk about his BD Bootcamp success and the novel concept that is The Training Room. How the BD Bootcamp changed him Sending spree followed by plateau Started training other people The Training Room - what is it? Cardio habits now? Diet is super important to him Current projects and city life

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.
