maximal contact finger strength
I've found that real strength and fitness gains come from methodically training your body and mind week by week (in cycles) using systems resources and methods. World Cup Competitors don't get to that level by just climbing a lot:
- Finger boards,
- Campus rungs,
- Campus Board
- 45 boards,
- or a mix of all things wood!
Obviously getting stronger also requires training your core and supporting climbing specific training with antagonistic exercises and weights to reduce chances of injury. But the fingers are first in the chain and are the main focus for improvement.
Develop maximal strength then power then power endurance at the appropriate 'project level'. There is no point moving to PE at too low a level, so therefor you have to build that strength level first, then convert to dynamic strength (Power) and finally develop the correct level of power to Power Endurance - this has to be based on the level you are aiming for or projecting.
