Now that it's time to use your hangboard you want to be sure you're doing so in a way that prevents injury while also building strength and endurance.

A few key reminders:

Warm up and stretch: get your arms and fingers moving, use both static and dynamic stretching techniques.

Double check the board and pull up bar are secure: slowly weight the board when you first start, check the footings against the doorframe are making solid contact, and be sure the hangboards screws are not loose.

Stop if it…
