Hi, I have recently built a training board at home (40deg) which is great, but I'm having trouble warming up. Is there any way to warm up on a steep woody without injuring myself? bearing in mind that I have no other less-angled walls.

If it's your own board surely you can put some big holds on it for a warm up route?
Failing that, do some pulse-raisers - star jumps, jogging, push ups etc, then deadhangs increasing in hold difficulty, then climb the easiest route on the board, go from there.

Do some press ups and some gentle hangs.

AKA, to the OP, jugs.

I have a beast maker and I just hang off the biggest holds and take plenty of weight by keeping my feet on the floor and gradually increase load on the arms by bending the knees. You could do the same on a board.

Add jugs. Mark a line or dots on the floor out from the wall to keep your toes on so it's less steep while you traverse to warm up. Traverse in the lower section by the kicker where it's less steep. Make the angle adjustable. Add foot holds out to the sides so you can bridge. All the usual pulse raising and stretching stuff before you start.
