Hi Brandt, hope things are good...Not familiar with that book, will look it up. Are the secrets of a long long climbing career in there?

Walter. I have had good results with the training specified by Eric Horst. I think it was in Training For Climbing where he has a very specific prescription for hang boarding.

Hello Guy, the Andersons' book is primarily aimed at young hard sport climbers; a "Novice" trainee is described as one who climbs below the 5.12 level(!) I have been able to dumb it down to my level and it has been very helpful. It includes a good balance of general scientific understanding and practical specific training schedules. There are chapters solely devoted to both hangboard and campus board training.

Whether it will make it possible for me to keep improving into my senior years only time will tell!

If you double your power in 3 weeks, you should be giving us your rep and training. Not the other way around.

climbing friend,

you grip 2 up with upper downward crushing crimp, while holding undercling on lowest rung with Uberklïngen grip of power, creating "ring of power" of compression on upper rung and lower rung, all while thrusting your meat strongly up along the board.

In this way you will train entire power meat chain from hands and forearms to chest and back, max power, 2 weeks quadrupling.

Ok here you are,,, 30 second steady with harms flex, than 1 min rest. Repeat 4 times. Then push up slow 5 times 1 min rest do it 3 times, then steady arms stretch for 30 second on the finger.... 4 series of push up from the floor,,,Repeat 5 times a week, I really improve with this work out..

???? "steady arm stretch" are you using the campus board to do deadhangs on?

If you aren't working explosively on the campus board, then you aren't using it for what it is designed for. Certainly you can deadhang on it, and move rung to rung "slowly" (statically you mean?) but this isn't training "power" in the terms that the climbing training literature is discussing.

Unless I've read incorrectly between your posts, then I apologize.
