I added this to my board recently. The piece of hardwood had been sitting on my desk for ages. I decided there was a face in it, got whittling, and The Board Moai was revealed.

Next time I go down to the garage I think I need to take a marker pen and start naming holds. H10 to I5 to D3 just isn't cutting it any more. That shrunken head is brilliant!

When you've got a sander, no spare piece of wood is safe from ending up on the board.


Amen

If it were bigger you could get a good undercling using the nostrils 😃

All dependent on receiving delivery of pull-up bar and beastmaker (as well as my ability to install):

1. one-arm pull-up (haven't tried since injury)
2. BW hang on the small BM 2K edges (14mm I think)
3. 6min 100 pull-up challenge (think I did 6:30 back in the day no idea what is good)
4. Front lever (will require the most work)

If too easy, will add more. Also need to not re-injure...
1, 3, 4 are quite lofty goals whereas 2 was achieved v easily

New goals:
1. one-arm pull-up (haven't tried since injury)
2. 6min 100 pull-up challenge (think I did 6:30 back in the day no idea what is good)
3. Front lever (will require the most work)
4. Hang 8mm micros BW 10 seconds

It boggles my mind that anyone can be close to a one-arm (impressive demonstration of strong latissimus and ok shoulder girdle) without being able to hold a front lever for 2 seconds (demonstration of medium strong latissimus dorsi)?

I'm trying to sketch force vectors to try to understand how this could happen.

Does you and others who are strong on pulls but weak on front-levers display enormously strong biceps and brachs that help with the pulling??

Hmm that's interesting. Maybe it's a case of not knowing how to properly engage the required muscles. I've generally been able to do a one-armer (not at the moment) but my best front lever has been c. 1 second...

I was more amazed that he could do a one armer but not hang the 14mm bm2k edges, though it's obviously less connected than one armer/front lever, it's very odd in a climber, so I'm glad you've fixed that coops!

I was thinking this. I'm assuming that the 14mm edges are the bottom outside edges? Surely Coops is strong enough to hang them with ease at bodyweight?!

On that note, does anybody have a diagram which shows how deep each respective slot is? I mean, I could measure it but the T square is all the way down in the garage...

Think there's a similar one for the bm2k somewhere but I can't find it atm, so just measured the important ones:
Outside bottom edges 14mm
Outside upper edges 33mm
Middle bottom edge 23mm

All inclusive of radius

The lattis rung is 20mm

Yeah bodyweight 14mm was v easy, one-armer far off right now. I had easy finger aims as I'm slowly starting to load them again after finger injury last May and c. 5 months off climbing over winter. If someone can tell me what I should be doing for front lever other than pull hard and hold, I'm all ears - give me your magic micro-beta!

Me too. Currently I've got one leg tucked right to my chest, the other extended and just hold that for 10s or so. Doing 10 reps (alternating legs) with a minute or two rest. Feels hard on pecs and lats. Trying to progress by slowly untucking the other leg but can only go a few inches atm without my arse starting to drop!

The middle rung on mine is def not 21mm. Weird that otherwise I pretty much get the same.

My friend who is very strong at front levers swears by doing 'negatives'. This meaning that you start by rotating yourself up to a tucked position at around 170/180 degrees, at which point you straighten your legs and lower as slowly as possible into the front lever, whilst making sure not to 'pike'. His words were that it builds the proprioception for the movement itself whilst building up the absolute strength required in the lats and shoulders. He never bothered with the traditional progressions either (e.g. 1 leg, tucked, advance tuck, etc...).

Hope that helps, Coops.

Cheers, will take a look. Height of ceilings and doorframe may limit the angle I can get up to though...

Progress report:

I had a session trying The Lockdown Project on the board today and have now finally done all the moves. The full link still feels a way off but fortunately it looks like I've still got plenty of time.

Hope everyone else is getting stuck into their projects!

I'm on day 26 of my lockdown (I had to start a bit before most), I set 3 lockdown projects.

I thought #1 (twisty crimpy one) was going to be the hardest but new foot beta unlocked the crux move and I finished it off 2 sessions later on day 16.

I've got 2 moves that I haven't done yet on each of #2 (basic front on crimps) and #3 (slopers).

I set project #4 this week. I haven't been able to hold the holds for the second move yet, let alone move in to them. If I'm going to complete this one before the lockdown ends, we are going to have to be in it for the long haul.

3. Front lever (will require the most work)

Adjusted goals again since doing first one-arm max hang session of lockdown:
1. one-arm pull-up (haven't tried since injury)
2. one-arm hang 7s with <= 10% BW removed (BM2K bottom middle hold)
3. Front lever (would be happy with 5 seconds)
4. Hang 8mm micros BW 10 seconds

So my lockdown goals were as follows.

50kg on the lattice finger test
20mm lattice rung, strict half crimp.
3rd week in and up to 48kg.
(Started at 41kg before lockdown)

And

One arm hang beastmaker bottom middle slot.
So far slight band assistance.
