A hangboard workout is a climbing workout using a piece of equipment called a hangboard. A hangboard, also known as a fingerboard, is designed specifically to help rock climbers increase the strength of their climbing holds and grips. A hangboard contains a variety of holes and small edges for handgrips and is mounted on a wall to mimic vertical climbing.
Hangboard workouts employ a variety of holds in the hangboard to allow climbers to practice different grips to strengthen their wrists, fingers, and arms. Hangboards can be found at most climbing gyms and can lessen your risk of injury during practice or out in the field.
