When you first see it probably you will wonder why nobody came up with it before. It was so self-evident...
A fingerboard with progressively smaller edges to improve maximum strength and endurance... of course!
If I always try to use a bigger dumbbell when doing biceps curl, why shouldn't I try to use ever smaller edges when doing dead hangs?
Controlling and stepping up the training load, realizing the importance of personalization, basing your motivation on effort and improvement, and the application of the scientific method are fundamental for my vision of development; they have also inspired the design of this board.
Back in 2003 I thought of a prototype that would fill the needs for my first research on finger strength training: the 'regletómetro'.

|Progression by Eva López|
progression® has 8 edges of different depth, that are scientifically selected as ideal for climbers with a medium level of finger strength, so that they can take their first steps in intensive finger training.
How do I know if progression® is the ideal fingerboard for me?
It will be if you want to begin serious finger training and you meet both of the following requisites:
- You have been climbing for more than 2 years, on a weekly basis, and without major interruptions;
- You are older than 16 (Morrison and Schöffl, 2007);
- You have a low or medium level of finger strength as measured by the following tests:
- Being able to hang
- more than 15 seconds from a 24mm-deep edge,
- less than 35 seconds from a 20mm edge
- and less than 10 seconds from a 10mm edge.
If you find these requisites too easy for you, congratulations, and don't worry because there is another fingerboard that will meet your needs; its name is transgression® .
How do I train with progression® ?
Guidelines for methodology, management, training load control and scheduling of your training, are included with every fingerboard so that you can tailor and manage your own training, with the ultimate goal of making you into the master of your own process of improvement.
