Find your training plan and current Baseline finger strength by using the
“Roots Training Plan Finder”.
Use the ROOTS MAX tool to calculate the % in Kg’s of your Max Hang Weight. This is important to ensure you are training at the correct loads.
See our unique “Roots-Factor” calculator for accurate Kg’s to add to your current weighted fingerboard training sessions.
The Roots-Factor training tool was created for specific use with the Baseline fingerboard and finger strength plans but will work well with all other brands of hangboard.
It assures a smooth transfer through the Baseline training plans.
See also the Roots PULL UP TOOL, this works alongside our hangboard training plans and is used to increase the added kg's for your pull up training.
And now for the first time we have an ABSOLUTE BASELINE tool which takes into account your heart rate - this is the only way to measure gains in real terms.
The system is valid up to about V13 and suggests a v grade to train at as a minimum.
doing 5x5 repeaters on boulders is the best training for this.
use 9 to 12 moves for power endurance and 2 to 5 moves for strength.
Our training plans are split into colours, these are based around the Fontainebleau coloured circuit grades and help you to train at the required intensity.
these plans are 12+ sessions long and you should include plenty of GAET and low to medium intensity bouldering sessions.
I pre-ordered my Roots Climbing Baseline Hangboard and have been so psyched to be training on it.
In a 'humbling' re-adjustment to training on my old resin board, in only 3 weeks of training I had strength & power gains equating to a solid grade jump into the Font 7s. (It's been 8/9yrs since I was climbing in the Font 7s pre-family, work etc.).
If you want a finger/hangboard and training protocols to match, get a Baseline as it's easily the best fingerboard I've used in 15yrs of climbing.
