In February 2021, a video by Swedish climber Emil Abrahamsson went viral, in which he presented a simple and seemingly effective training for finger strength: With just 2 short hangboard sessions a day, he achieved an incredible increase in performance in one month. Now, after a two-year period, the climbing professional is commenting on his supposed miracle cure.
Anyone who, like Alex Megos, has become strong on the finger holes in Franconian Switzerland and has trained for years with professional trainers such as Dicki Korb or Patrick Matros should be the perfect place to go when it comes to finger strength. In his latest video, the German climbing professional shows various exercises that you can use to build up your finger strength.
Whether beginner or pro, many climbers make the same mistakes when training fingerboards. In the video, professional climber and coach Tom Randall clears up the three most common mistakes and explains the effect of fatigue, as well as body and grip position on training success.
