Y Y Vertical finger trainer review

Posted by J Ashman on 3rd Dec 2021

Jamie Ashman, Castle Duty Manager and fearsomely strong climber, gives his thoughts on one of the Y+Y Vertical wooden training aids:

'Finger trainers like the Duo are perfect for training individual fingers in isolation, and the Duo’s ergonomic design means it is kind on the skin whilst still providing enough friction for it to feel solid under load. I found it particularly useful when rehabilitating finger injuries, where progressive loading for relatively long periods is ideal. 

If using it in this fashion I would recommend getting a karabiner and some cord or a sling to hang the weight more easily from the finger trainer.'
