Dear,

I am trying to do campus training but is still much to me. Anyone has tips to improve my power in order to achieve campus ability (I don't have the power to perform the movement of grip on the board and go to the next one without feet placement)?

Thanks and regards.

If you can't hang on the campus rungs, hang on a hangboard until you can.

I saw your other thread; It ain't your pulling power stopping you. Get some forearms first.

great barrington
I agree with Zach, get on a hangboard, do pull-ups, frenchies, lock-offs, etc. Work on open handed movement while climbing. When you feel stronger start trying to just do pull-ups on a campus rung to see if you have improved and if that feels good try to do off-set pull-ups on them and see if you can lock one arm off. It takes a long time to build up strength just to get to train on campus rungs, so be patient and be careful. Campus training can give you pulley injuries easily, make sure you pay attention to finger pain if it develops. Good luck! bowshaaa
