Topic - Why does climbing make your fingers fat?!

EmSB - on 28 Feb 2014
Has anyone else noticed that their fingers have got fatter from climbing lots? I can hardly fit my rings on any more because my fingers have got so much bigger and my boyfriend's fingers are really quite big from all the climbing! I was wondering if any one knows why this is?
There aren't any muscles in our fingers (the muscles which move them are all located in the hand) so it can't be due to muscle growth... Could it be tendon thickening? I'm just curious as I don't understand why our fingers would increase in size due to using them lots if there aren't any muscles in them??
