Someone was telling me that you can get injured easily by trying to do pullups on hangboards and that the Metolius Rock Rings are better for pullups.

I heard the same thing as alvchen, it has to do with the position of your hands and wrists. The rock rings let them align naturally, creating less risk of wrist injury. Also, I've seen many articles stating that hangboards are generally bad for your tendons in your hands and wrists. Most of those articles suggest campus boards with wooden rungs as a better alternative.

Yeah, I know. I'm not taking my hangboard down just for that, either. I may throw some rock rings up NEXT to it, tho.

i think their dangerous if done in repatition just like a campus board is, u just have to mix it up a bit and not over do it before your tendons have strenthened..

Better crimping traing is just hanging off the crimp instead of doning pullups. It's al ot safer too. not as much of a risk of injury.

Crimps feel good once you get used to them.

I can do 1 and 1/2 on the top of my door thingy (the boards on top & around the walkway)

some pro climber guy used to do about 1000 pull ups a day and it recked his elbows... Ouch!

Well i think that mixing it up is the best thing like someone else had mentioned. But as to the pull ups, i can do about 10 on a normal door molding (bout a 1/2 inch wide) and can do probably 5-6 on my budies finger board (smallest rung).

jumping in sticking the bottom ledge on a hangboard, now thats the stuff.

Isnt realy rock just and solid as a hang board, i don't see rock forming to the natural path of my arms!! We better stop rock climbing or we will kill the tendons in our arms!!

I place bets with non-climbers on who can do door jamb pullups. I bet a beer, if they can do one I buy a beer if not...
I can do two to three in a row, full extension but they always hurt too much so I dont do them on a regular basis. And I am afraid of getting injured.

Well, you may prefer crimpers to slopers Crazylikeafawkes, but nothing puts a smile on my face like some nice jugs. "No pun intended there"
Maybe i'm just a wusscadore.

For me hand and finger position is everything. With an open grip ( fingers long, no thumbs ) I can hang with less pain. With a closed or ring grip ( 2nd knukle above 1st and thumb on index finger )I can hang or pull on smaller edges with A LOT more pain and probably chance of injury. I try to train open grip but still use closed grip (while it lasts) when the going gets tough.

Bent arm hangs are a good alternative to lots pull ups. They don't hurt my elbows and increase lock off power/endurance.
