Topic - Bouldering vs system board for max gains/tedium

Kemics - on 26 Jun 2014
So im reading Eric Horst's book training for climbing. It has made me realise how little training I actually do. I go "training" at my local bouldering wall but really just wander around trying things. Some hard, some easy.

Anyway so I've just finished the chapter about sports science/specificity. My question is rather than bouldering problems which are hard. Am I better off creating simple problems between holds on a system board. It would let me make sure I'm right on my limit (much more control over variables) I could work L/R evenly and better isolate specific weaknesses. Essentially it would be like dynamic finger boarding.

Would this produce better results than bouldering generally?

The only downside I can see is that if it does work it would be painfully boring!
