What is our pinch wooden hangboard?
Our wooden pinch hangboard is a versatile piece of gym equipment that helps you to develop finger, hand, wrist and arm strength. In fact, hangboards have been said to be the best tool for boosting your bouldering and climbing performance by enhancing your grip strength.
Did you know that using a hangboard once a week can help you to hold on for longer while climbing, and increase your ability to complete those difficult climbs? For this reason, it’s seen by many as one of the most effective and essential tools while training.
Can beginners develop their grip strength using this hangboard?
Yes, of course! Our pinch board is ideal for both beginners and experienced athletes alike. All you have to do is ensure that it’s secured tightly to a solid foundation, and use your fingers for grip to hang from the board. To add that extra challenge onto your workout, you can move your fingers from one level to the other to boost performance and train those fingers.
There are a variety of holds, challenges and workouts you can explore to meet your level. For beginner-friendly exercises, you can challenge yourself by beating your best holding time. For experienced trainers, adding weights to your body is a great way to maximise your workouts.
Can I do pull ups on this pinch board?
Ideally, this tool is used for developing grip strength through your fingers, wrists and shoulders and therefore is not the most suitable equipment for pull ups. You can, however, use this pinch hangboard to stretch and warm up your shoulder and arm muscles.
