About this app

This application is a sidekick to the beastmaker 1000 and 2000. It has been designed to assist the user into gradually getting stronger on a fingerboard. The app does this by way of prewritten workouts which are often general and aim to improve all trainable grips on the board. Some are specific (2000 series only at the moment) which aim to improve, sloper strength, pocket strength and crimp strength.

There is also a new custom workout program fully adjustable and includes the 1000,2000 and micros, so if you have your own hang regime and different timings then that is all programmable and can be saved.

Both the workouts and custom timer now record hang contraction time (time spent actually hanging off the board) We recommend most users get up to around 20:00 minutes on this clock whilst doing their workouts.

On the Workout screen after you've selected your work out it is now possible to adjust set and hang times. Users who are only finger boarding and are having a rest day prior to and after training may wish to do up to 3 sets and 7 hangs. Other users may prefer to go for 2 sets and 6 hangs, this is what we'd consider an average and more suited to people doing additional types of training.

Please note the grades for the workouts aren't actually meant to relate to anything other than themselves. E.G. 5c is easier than 6a but harder than 5b. If you find 5a hard on the 1000, use a weight removal technique such as putting one foot on a chair in front of the board or using a pulley with weights on. More advice on this and other things are available in the general advice section on the Workout Ratings page.

To record your hangs press the record button (red circle icon) whilst resting. The Workout Ratings function is much improved and should now be a really useful training aid which records gradual progress and improvement.

Fingerboard gains take time, remember to warm up thoroughly and move on to more difficult hangs at a slightly slower pace than you think you should to give pulleys time to catch up with muscles. For example 10% strength gains over a year is brilliant improvement. 5% is still effective training.

Best of luck with the training, happy hanging and we hope this helps with the motivation.

The app is quite a bummer. Buying a high end fingerboard and then having to pay for an app additionally, you'd expect it'd be good at least. The workout programs for the bm2k begin at a very high standard even for experienced climbers. And the custom workouts features are quite terrible; there's no option to duplicate hangs, nor can you edit the custom workout, one has to delete the workout completely and create a new one.

The app isn't the worst one ever but not the most user friendly to workout. Once you've made a custom workout you can't edit it later to make updates you have to go from scratch which is annoying. The biggest annoyance has to be how unphased the app is if you accidentally hit a button to exit. A fix to ask are you sure you want to exit this work out would go a long way. I've lost so many hangs mid way through because I've accidentally hit the exit button.

this app is unfinished, and for 5 euro is absolute garbage. you can't change hang/rest time (only in the free hang which make the app identical to any other free hanging app). It can't be used in split screen and you can't use your phone for anything else or the timer freezes. if you want to skip a rep the countdown is zero, which is just wrong. there are other apps which are free and far better, this is useless. I'd write more but there isn't enough space.
