Too much my friend. Try use the fingerboard twice to three times a week. If you use it too much your tendons will die out, and when this happens you won't be able to climb for several months. Watch out.

Leading edge is right. I usually use my board until i burn out then wait till my fingers recooperate. Sometimes ill put stress on them (exercise 3 days in row) to get them into a little endurance but i let them rest so the tendons have time to tighten and heal

What boards you guys/girls using? I just bought a Metolius Pure Force, and not a big fan of it. The edges are to tight, so your forearms get burnt faster than your fingers! I also find the edges on it to be too small. Maybe I'm just being a gimp, but the biggest edge only allows for just a little more than my finger tips. The smaller edges are practically worthless after the first opne grip hang. Any way, I'll stop bitching now, and let you all chime in on how kick ass your boards are (?). Any of you use the Rock Rings?

I have a hangboard of EntrePrises (from the French Arnaud Brothers). It`s a big hangboard with many different kinds of grips, not only edges. But I find them a little too small, because I can`t keep hanging on too many of them. I don`t use it that much, only if I am not climbing for a while.

Bart you made my day

I thought I was riding solo on this one. I find the edges on my a little small as well, and therefore can't hang for very long off them. Which doesn't make it all too fun....more depressing actually.

  I was told that on the hangboard I should be looking for grips that I can hang on for 2-8 second.
If it is possible for me to hang for more than 8 seconds use smaller holds or hanf weight from my harness.

I used a hang board that was a great crack climb. It was two boards that were faced with concrete to give great jams. The concrete was randomly flowed onto the boards on the ground, then they were nailed onto another board to make a perfect 2-3" crack. They hauled one end of the thing up into a tree and nailed it off. It was about 5.9/5.10 for 20 feet.

I've got the Franklin cheapy job.
Hung it above the door in the garage.
So everytime I take the dogs out and don't feel lazy, I just hang while they are takin care of business.
So far, this is the only time I've found to screw around on it; and most of the time I feel too lazy.

I didn't have much money, so i built one with som scrap wood. a sander, saw, drill, few screws and some creativity can make for a pretty cool hangboard. Plus it's designed just for what you want, so the edges can be the right size.
