the future holds

The antibiotics are gone! Penicillin seems to have done its job; what is interesting is that it now takes a 10day course to shift what Fleming's wonder drug would have killed in a few tablets in the past. Diseases are adapting to punishment in the same way our bodys do. It just shows that if you want to get stronger you can't give your body the same treatment constantly and expect it to improve, you've got to gradually up the dose, keep pushing it and it'll adapt and respond accordingly.

What else have we been upto apart from coming up with complex metaphors? Well i've dropped a few 3's and 4's on the works board on one side due to my right arm being crap, i've sent them on 1 side though but this is silly and doesn't count towards anything except fustration. People should also brush the holds more, they're going to be up there for a while, you may aswell tidy your problems up whilst you rest ay?

Dave is making the 1000 series prototypes this week, as well as making a huge batch of 2000's.

We've heard of 2 people critisizing the 2000 for not having any small holds on. This REALLY gets our backs up, and i mean REALLY gets our backs up. So heres the deal, it didn't exactly slip our mind to not put edges on <10mm, we have lots of edges in Ned's cellar down to 4mm, these are fun for 1 off tests but they suck to train on and ruin skin for outdoor sessions. Some of you may have noticed a 5mm logo beneath the works Beastmaker... So come on Wads, step up, first person to 1 armer it infront of a member of staff there gets a free board or £60 cash, whichever you prefer. We prefer to do 1 armers and 1 arm repeaters on our comfy boards. Last time i checked no one has emailed me saying they've 1 armered the slopey 2 finger pockets or 45 degree slopers.

So far, Ru Davies has 1 armed the small pockets on the bottom rung, effort Ru!
Lots of people have 1 armed the bottom rung as a drag or crimp.
Ned's mate Rich has 1 armed the 1 pad mono on the bottom rung! BEAST!
and Keith has transferred from the slopey pockets to the 45degree slopers and held the swing, no tricks, its just brick. Effort Bradbury!
the 35degree sloper has been 1 armed a fair bit too.
(i'll be creating a far better records page in coming weeks which people can upload record claims themselves)

none of these people critisized the board for being juggy they just crushed it like its meant to be, those who did, we know who you are! and we expect to be burnt off well and truly. Oh and there have always been plans for a
2000 ELITE, this will be available in a month or two and is half depth on all the holds, aswell as some extra poor additions. the bottom crimps will be 5mm and really rounded.

Can you tell the psyche is back on board?

I think you've infected me you pair of fuckpigs.

Are people really complaining the holds arent small enough? I think this suggests a lack of real world fingerboarding knowledge rather than these people are really strong. Any smaller just rags your skin. I suggest anyone complaining theres nothing small enough is saying so for bravado rather than because they really have a requirement for a smaller hold.

Add weight or take fingers off you westies. Am well grumpy today.

Hello from across the pond....i like the site. Just read the whole 3,2,1 spiel and decided to give it a 4 week run.
I was wondering when doing the sets of repeaters and encores when do aim to fail. Do you want ot be failing on the last repeats of the first set, or the second or third. You get the idea.

Also I was wondering how you guys integrate the hangboard into your training as a whole. Do you try to do the whole periodization thing? When you are focusing on it are you warming up and then straight to the board? Do you also campus when you are in a finger cycle?

I am from St. Louis and there is really no one psyched on training so I am all on my own. Seems like you guys have your ducks in a row. Thanks for the help.

I tried to take a plane ride from one side of a beastmaker mono to the other, but the plane ran out of fuel half way and we all plunged 30,000 ft to our death. Now i'm gonna sue your ass!
