Do you dream of sending hard routes full of finger pockets? Prepare your fingers with RainDrop!
RainDrop is a small mono pocket, about the same size as a car key. This is a unique training device, which can make your individual fingers significantly stronger. You can start training just right here and now, using only the weight of your wallet!
Attention! RainDrop is not for beginners! RainDrop is an extreme wooden finger pocket, therefore the proper warming up before climbing exercises is strongly recommended. Warming up before training sessions prevents injuries and guarantees maximal performance. Keep your fingers warm before training with RainDrop!
There are four basic options:
Finger-lifting mode. Attach to RainDrop a preferable weight and start finger-lifting training for each individual finger.
Pulling-up/dead-hanging mode. Attach RainDrop to any projection or ledge supporting your body weight and start crushing one-finger pull-ups or dead-hangs. As one-finger pull-ups or dead-hangs could be physically hard, you can use more than one RainDrop together or combine it with the other training devices.
Pulling-down mode. Attach a small pulley somewhere above your raised hand and run a cable (or a strong lace) into it. Connect RainDrop to the one end of the cable and attach a preferable weight to the opposite one. Start very effective one-finger pull-downs, which reproduces the real movements during climbing and works your forearms in a whole distance, from the fully raised hand to your wrist below your belt.
Free-pulling mode. Climbing is not only in a vertical direction. Attach RainDrop to bungee (or to any pulley stretching band expander), anchor bungee wherever, in front of you, behind, from the side, etc., and start one-finger pulling RainDrop in any preferable space directions to reach the new level of your fingers and body strength.
Check the strength of each finger. Find out your weak points and train hard to improve them with RainDrop.
At some point, RainDrop will become permanent part of your climbing life. Small size is a great opportunity to train your fingers while traveling. Due to its tiny size, RainDrop will be your reliable partner everywhere.
