    from bam climbing Added 31.9K 112 5

    Rob Candelaria was one of the first climbers to create a finger strength training tool for climbing. This video gives a little history behind what was likely the first hangboard before diving into a twist on hangboarding based on scientific studies finger strength training in addition to the training principles of specificity and progressive overload. The bäm! board is a wood, adjustable hangboard that allows you to set the edge and pocket depth anywhere between 3.5 and 0.5 cm and set the sloper angle in 5 deg increments from 15 to 50 deg. The goal of this board is to create a tool that allows for small increments of change to open and closed hand grips so you can slightly increase the difficulty as you get stronger.
