i can only do one pull up but after i climb i can do more, my arms get so tired so fast when im climbing that i cant hold oh very well and it takes me a long time to climb because i have to rest my arms. it doesnt happen outdoor only in the gym i think its because i do a lot more climbs in the gym because when i go outdoor we go with a lot of people and ou have to wait a while to climb. how can i keep my arms from getting tired so fast or make them stronger.

DON'T buy a Nicros Nexgen hangboard. They're attention to quality is pathetic, and they are not symetrical, which means you're training will leave your body uneven in muscle. You're much better off purchasing a board from Pusher, or Metolius.

If you're pumping out fairly quickly (too quickly, by your own judgement), then you probably don't have a strength problem as much as an endurance one.

I strongly suggest that you get into a routine for about 6 weeks of either climbing on a self belay device at a gym, where you can go up (and preferably down, too) on the easiest possible routes available for 20 - 30 minutes non-stop. If you can't do laps, then do traverses (bouldering) on the easiest holds you can, for the same time period. The objective is to avoid a pump completely, and just do continuous climbing/bouldering for the specified period of time. Yes, it gets boring, so you may want to bring a walkman, or something.

This super-easy work will develop capillaries, and they will supply a greater amount of blood to the muscles, so when you do climb on harder stuff, you won't pump out so fast.

It takes discipline to do this work, but it will pay off in a big way! Do this twice a week, at least one set (period of time) per "workout". Since it's really hard not to climb on more challenging stuff, go ahead, even on the same day. Just do the workout first, and allow yourself plenty of rest after the workout (about 10 -15 minutes) before you move onto harder routes and problems. You will actually see results a little faster if you completely avoid climbing at your limit during the weeks of doing this workout, but that's asking a lot. Just make it part of what you do in the climbing gym, and be dedicated to doing it.
