Topic - Training to improve my locking off when my shoulder's not used

SuperstarDJ - on 24 Dec 2013
I've got plenty of climbing weaknesses but at the moment I'm struggling with indoor bouldering routes where I need to lock off with one arm, either low down by my waist or higher and away from my body. I'm guessing my bicep/triceps are doing most of the work (certainly my biceps twinge a little), along with my core. My shoulders don't seem to be engaged at these angles or positions.

Had anyone got any idea of exercises I could do to improve this? Either at the gym, with a fingerboard or at the wall.

I'm climbing stuff at 5b-6a at Nottingham climbing centre (so maybe 6a+ or V3?).

Thanks!

David
