PROGRESSION® is a fingerboard conceived, developed, and scientifically evaluated by the Spanish trainer and climber Eva López for JM Climbing Surfaces for the effective training of the #1 physical performance factor in Sport Climbing: Finger Strength.
This board has 8 different edge depths that have been evaluated as ideal for climbers with a medium level of finger strength, allowing them to control and progress in their training and to individually tailor their own process of improvement.
Its innovative geometry, with an overhanging profile and horizontal continuous holds of decreasing depth, results in a durable, compact product that also provides the precision needed for a reliable and consistent training. The maximum error in edge depth is ±0.3 mm, in order to make the training experience consistent across boards.
The Training Guidelines included with the board, which provide recommendations for Training and Installation, allow the user to become an expert and manage their own improvement process, boosting motivation and commitment, key aspects in the long-term quest for performance.

Recommended for intiation of specific finger strength training for climbers:
- With a minimum of 2 years of systematic climbing training
- With a medium level of finger strength validated by the following test: maximum fatigue time hanging with semi-rounded hold and straight arms on a 20mm list which is LESS than 20 seconds, and on a 10mm list LESS than 10 seconds.
-PROGRESSION is not recommended for people under 16 years of age
-TRANSGRESSSION is not recommended for people under 18 years of age
Warning based on a study by Morrison & Schoffl
(2007): Physiological responses to rock climbing in young climbers. This study asserts there is a correlation between intensive finger training and the occurrence of serious injuries such as finger stress fractures in youths.
