Just curious, what volume do people aim for when doing campus board training? I've read "the making of a 'rockprodigy'" where 6-10 sets is indicated, each set being a trip up or down. Considering that gyms have boards of differing numbers of rungs, what do you aim for? Do you aim to get to the top? Do you aim for a set number of hand moves? Do you go up and down and back up again?
I've been doing my sets to near failure without a predetermined rep goal. Typically 8-10 sets, continuously (up, down, up, down, etc) with 5-7' rest between sets. After 6 sessions, I've seen improvement with precision/control, repetitions/volume, and ability to top the medium rungs (compared to not being able to make one move at all). I'm on board with campus training but I want to refine it to prevent overtraining and injury. At this point only my skin has suffered the consequences. Any recommendations?
