FIN­GER MO­BIL­ITY

Climbing - - SKILLS -

IN­STRUC­TIONS

Per­form the fol­low­ing hand po­si­tions in a rhyth­mic se­quence.

Straight Fin­gers: Straighten your hand.

Hook Fist: Crimp your fin­gers down, keep­ing your knuck­les aligned with your wrist.

Full Fist: Roll your fin­gers down­ward.

Flat Fist: Press your fin­gers into your palm.

WHAT IT DOES

In­creases flex­i­bil­ity of the fin­ger mus­cles and ten­dons through a com­plete range of mo­tion—the more dex­ter­ous, flex­i­ble, and pre­pared your fin­gers are, the more eas­ily you can grasp tiny holds. If you want, progress the ex­er­cise into more com­plex move­ment pat­terns, like se­quenc­ing your project. This will help build muscle mem­ory while you warm up.
