Cutting Loose Drill for Finger Strength and Coordination

A lot of times when we climb, we find we have to reach a high handhold and cut loose, during this process we tend to fall since we’re basically dead-hanging for few seconds trying to gain back control. You can try this drill in order to body-memorize the body responds when you encounter this situation.

The Drill:

Place a surface that you can use as a foothold, move it far apart so you’re forced to do long swings to reach it, try 10 of these swings or so… start with easier handholds and decrease the size as you get used to the movement, make a pull-up and kick back with your legs as you swing in order to control the pendulum.
