One of the features of hangboards that make them such a valuable training tool is how convenient they make getting a quality workout in. Once you’ve mounted a fingerboard in your home, you can effectively train finger strength without having to make the trek to a climbing gym.
While this convenience is great, it is important to remember that even if you are training at home you have to throughly warm up. Without a proper warmup, you will undermine your training by not being able to try your hardest and run a serious risk of getting injured. Don’t let the ease of home fingerboarding trick you into skipping the warmup!
To give you an idea of how to best warmup for a hangboard session both with and without a climbing wall, here’s an excerpt from our Finger Strength Training Programs.
