You should have asked before you got the device, and saved yourself some trouble.

It is not going to do much in terms of improving your climbing. Someone who has been climbing just a few months needs technique and mileage, not gripmasters, and the like.

Still, going with "you have it, you might as well play with it in your spare time" mentality, start with the exercises/repetitions/times that gripmaster recommends. I am sure there was a brochure that came with it, but if not, here is the general idea:

Keep a log to track your improvement is gripmastering.

Probably a waste of time. If you can't get to climbing often enough (~2/week or more) then get a hangboard or some rock rings that more closely mimic what you do (with your hands) while climbing.

Bullshit. It all helps Shannon. If you are sitting at a desk all day and pull it out and squeeze it, it will at least tone you up.

..or make you feel better if you're a dude:-0
