Topic - How to get back into training?

Rhapsody on 15 Jul 2014
Hey! I have been off climbing for a few months. Basically I climbed for about half a year, peaking at v5/6. At around this point I started to get bad pains in my elbow, which got very bad. Over the next year or so I went through periods of taking weeks/month off before going climbing or training again.
This was pretty demotivational, but after a while I was climbing a few times a week for around two months. Then I had problems with my fingers, I had sharp pains in the last and middle joints of most of my fingers.
This was potentially more serious than the elbow injuries (growth plates and all) so I haven't been climbing since (around 3 months)

So since then I maintained general fitness/health by running and going to the gym. so my fitness is alright, and I only had minor twinges in my elbows when training.

So I wanted to know if anyone has any tips/advice for getting back into climbing/training? Like things to avoid, important exercises/things to do etc.
