/ How to warm up for a beastmaker 2000?
Pardon my ignorance....but what's a spikey?
Got a warm up from a cousin who's into sword fighting of some sort. He recommended flicking your fingers out from a closed grip, really pushing the fingers out, 30 times in a row, 3 times to make 90. Hell of a pump by the end, I was surprised.
10 second.hang off big slopers, 10 chinups on jugs (i have a simulator as well.as the bm2000) jog on the spot a bit, quick 20 pressups, then a 10-20 second hang on the good crimps, then usually a few 3 finger repeaters on the good crimps before going to 2 fingers or and thinner holds.
I found the best thing was to put a chair in-front of the door frame. Then hang for a while moving around the larger holds with your feet on the chair. It takes me about 5 minutes of this to warm-up.
This really intrigues me, don't suppose you have a photo?
Also thanks for the replies, this is all really good advice!

There is a face book page facebook.com/spikymassager. If you search for it there is a spiky picture viewable without going into facebook. I've had one for a year or so now and it is brilliant for warming up and also really eases any aches after climbing hard.
