Some weeks ago on the October 29th I joined a SmartBoard training in my local gym Magic Mountain by Jörg Helfrich. Result of the evaluation has been that my upper arms are too weak and I could improve my finger strength.
The SmartBoard climbing training with Jörg Helfrich showed in some ways maybe obvious facts. My finger strength was maybe in between of a novice and intermediate climber. Not that bad, but upgradable. And my upper arms or pull up power is equivalent to a beginner. Here two screenshots of my finger strength evaluation.
The results from the Smartboard evaluation suggested two main things. At first, I try to train three times per week my pull ups. And second, I should buy a hangboard and train my finger strength once per week. The standard for fingerboards seems to be the beastmaker.
While surfing for second hand beastmaker hangboards in my town I found a offer to buy a beastmaker in combination with a Motherboard. A motherboard is somekind of a smart addon for your beastmaker. It is mounted under the beastmaker and contains sensors that send the data to your smartphone. I was so impressed by the Smartboard training that I decided to buy also a smart upgraded beastmaker for my training.
Once in the week I train now with a workout in the Grippy App. That works also without the Motherboard. Here a screenshot of the workout overview and a detail view of a workout.
All workouts are stored in the app and overtime you are able to see your training load and progress. Here screenshots from the workout history and a detail view of a recorded workout.
The app contains also benchmarks to control your training progress. Here a screenshot of the benchmarks overview and a detail view.
