Wrist training is commonly used:
- To increase strength in the wrist rotation and deviation muscles and improve stability whilst climbing. This typically decreases the amount of friction required to maintain contact with less positive holds and surfaces.
- Rehabilitation of wrist injuries: targets the affected area with a progressive load. (More convenient than a rack of dumbbells)
- Rehabilitation of golfers/tennis elbow (tendonitis in the elbow), a common issue for climbers.
Hoopers Beta provides some excellent content on basic wrist training exercises, including some DIY solutions to training your wrist rotation and deviation. If you’re looking for a more measured approach, then our Pin Grip, Fractional Weight Plates and Lifting Pin combination will allow you to start training at extremely low loads and incrementally increase session to session. This is our preferred method of training, allowing you to methodically track your progress to avoid overloading & potential injuries.
