5 Errors on the Campus Board

This is a video describing 5 errors that are really pretty common with training on the campus board.

Some of them might surprise you….and could explain why you may get injured on the campus board (think elbows, shoulders, fingers).

The errors common on the campus board:

1. Not warming up properly

2. Not using your feet…..(maybe not an error you’ve thought of? Watch the video:))

3. Not keeping your arms in the right position, which can definitely lead to injury….the correct positioning is shown here

4. How you grab a campus rung based on your hand shape/size

5. The angle of the campus rungs to the ground

Obviously it would be nice if this video was in english but the subtitles are there:)

Watch the video for detailed information about why injuries can happen from training on the campus board and what you can do to prevent them….

    Great video, but I’m surprised to see that he recommends not using maximal effort for campus board workouts in the interest of strengthening connective tissue in the hands. My understanding was that the principle of supercompensation applies to both muscles and connective tissue, in that they need progressive overload to stimulate growth and strengthening. Does anyone have a physiological explanation for why a workout at 20% of maximum effort would stimulate no growth in connective tissue, a workout at 70% would stimulate growth, and a workout at 90% or 100% would stimulate no growth?
