hungry hungry Hangboard...

one good way to start your hangboard training tradition is with a good old fashion assessment. take all the hold positions and gauge your strength. in general, 10 or more pull-ups is great as is holding any hold longer than 12 seconds. when you get your max values for each hold and exercise take roughly 80% of that and apply it to your training routine. if you are in that greater than 10 pulls or 12 sec range for exercises, consider other options such as training on a more difficulty hold or adding weight with a vest or harness. here is an example of my test form for my metolius pure force board. oh and max pull refers to the most wieght you can add and complete one full pull-up. any other questions or comments... please share with us!
