Develop a Stronger Pinch Grip for Bouldering and Rock Climbing with Pinch-Grip Repeater Training!
(This article was originally published in January 2020.)
Learn a simple, yet effective training method for developing a stronger pinch grip for bouldering and rock climbing. This exercise will also strengthen your thumb-lock for “closed crimp” gripping small holds.
The pinch-grip Repeater training protocol explained by Coach Hörst involves doing 3 sets of Repeaters. Each set is a 7-second pinch done 6 times with each hand. Rest 3 to 5 minutes between sets. Equipment featured in this video includes “The Block” by Tension Climbing and a free-weight loading pin by Rogue Fitness (although we recommend the Lattice “Quad” Pinch block and the Lattice Lifting Pin).
