What's gonna stop the finger pulleys from tearing? Or the tendons from tearing?

There has to be SOME sort of "conditioning" or strengthening going on there.

For example, using the winch analogy...

A normal person's "winch" might be capable of pulling x lbs but the "cable" might not handle it and break.

A climber's "cable", I imagine, would be much stronger, like steel that was nitrided, shotpeened or cryo-treated.

How can someone strengthen the "load rating" on their tendons and pulleys in their hands as efficiently as possible without causing pain or injury? Something I've been curious about for a while now. I only ask because I've seen some gnarly injuries in real life... not something I want to ever go through... EVER. lol

Edit: Sorry for the off-topic thread-jack. But it sounds like you know what you're talking about, I'm just learning.
