Topic - Finger training with dodgy shoulders

Donnie - on 25 Jun 2013
Iíve reached a bit of a plateau in my climbing at about f6c(short routes)/V4, due to having dodgy shoulders and being unable to try too hard when I climb to much, or do any dangling off finger boards.

I'm thinking of getting some of those Metollius rock rings and attaching them to the seated row weight machine at my gym then holding them statically with shoulders pulled down and in and arms bent.

Hopefully thisíll let me train my fingers without putting too much strain on my shoulders. Anyone tried this? Any obvious reason why not? Any other thoughts?

(And Iíve got a grip master and even intend to use it, but this doesnít seem very climbing specific Ė squeezing rather than static gripping.)

Cheers
