Earlier this week Mike and I were invited on Nik Hawks’ podcast over at PaleoTreats. PaleoTreats is a web-based mail order company that makes delicious and nutritious desserts for active and health-conscious folks. In their own words,
“…We’ve been making foodie-approved Paleo desserts since 2009. We are serious about flavor, texture, ingredients and Paleo. Yes, all of them. We’ve shipped around the world, from Australia to Afghanistan, and we’ve ironed out all the kinks of getting a great dessert to your door.”
Nik’s podcast isn’t really about that though. He’s interviewed an impressively diverse group of folks covering the gamut from elite athletes, to coaches and nutrition experts, focused on a wide variety of sports. He’s really interested in the pursuit of excellence, and the common factors that make athletes successful, regardless of their athletic vocation. Our podcast covered a variety of topics, including:
- Goal-Setting in life and sports
- How to develop the ability to work hard in yourself and your kids
- The time and place for skill development in climbing
- What we’re most proud of (in a training sense), and what we would change about the RCTM
- How self-esteem (or lack thereof) has impacted our motivation and success
- The next big innovations in climbing training
(Pretty much the only thing we didn’t talk about is food)

just finished listening to your podcast interview and as an add on to your ongoing areas of research it would be interesting if you were to generate force data for campus boarding, especially when tracked with time. Not only would it provide information on potential left and right discrepancies it could also resolve the question on whether it truly is plyometric in nature or not.
Rui, that is a great idea, and one I hadn’t considered yet. It would be a pain to instrument every rung of the board, but I think we could collect the data you want just by instrument the main supports for the whole board. The time history of the data would make it apparent which hand was creating each spike in force.
