I've agreed to buy a moon fingerboard from a member on here so, once I've mounted it, I'm keen to get using it.....

However, I'm a newbie - just breaking into 6a+(ish)and well aware that I need to approach this with some care to avoid injuries. I know it's generally not advised - with more climbing being preferable but I would like to do some gentle training on the board in between times.

I climb twice a week, Monday doing nothing but traverses working on technique and wednesday or friday with a friend doing some routes. Both days about two hours. This will include bouldering / climbing outdoors when the weather improves. I also use a gyro ball and gripmaster when I remember.

Can anyone suggest a gentle workout (on the fingerboard) that'll be beneficial but without going too far? Or a way to carefully build up and find the point where I need to be working on and the point I shouldn't go beyond?
