/ fingerboard gains in a month
I've recently been thinking about getting a training board but was just wondering if realistically there was any chance of improving strength in only one month.
I'm asking because if the answers no then I think I'll hold off buying one until I return.
P.s - if anyones selling one make me an offer
In one month you could easily lose enough weight to supercede any gain in finger strength!
Get running every 2nd day, long slow distance.
gd luck : )
Fortunately I don't need to lose any weight - while running may make me fitter, losing weight would be more of a health problem for me than gaining it.
If you're new to fingerboarding, probably not much gain. I think I spent the best part of a month working out how best to use it, where my limits were, etc. Immediately after that I probably got the fastest improvement though! I'm sure I won't be the only person to suggest going down to the bouldering wall an extra session or two per week. You can probably get a 1 month pass to limit the cost, as long as you have the time.
Easily. Warm up carefully but yes, I think you would make some good gains in a short time.
It depends on your current level I suppose but just using a fingerboard, I'd doubt it. I'd suggest that your time would be better spent elsewhere.
I guess really you're looking 3 1/2 weeks. Remember to rest extra before your trip!
