Video: Contact Strength Training Using a Campus Board

In this episode of my Epic-TV training series, I present three campus training exercises for developing contact strength—that is, the rate of force development in the finger flexor muscles…a critical attribute for hard bouldering and sport climbing.

This series will continue to roll out this winter with a new episode every few weeks. If you haven’t watched it already, check out episode one on hangboard training to develop maximum grip strength. Please “like” and share the videos!

In part two of EpicTV’s new training series, climbing coach and author Eric Hörst presents three exercises for developing all-important contact grip strength. Exercise #1 is a safe entry-level method of campusing training…but exercise #3 is hard—for advanced climbers only!
