So I have hypermobile joints at the fingertips, bottom knuckles and wrists, and it is causing issues with grip. A bruising pain happens quite often after a couple of bouldering problems. I don't do heavily crimpy routes but even princh holds cause pain after a little while. Don't even get me started on sloper holds. My hands just feel so unstable on them. Thing is I really want to advance in my climbing and as someone who's played keyed instruments my ligaments and tendons are already quite strong around the pulleys. The training I do for that is the same as climbers finger exercises.
Are there specific finger and wrist training exercises that specifically target the the tendons around the joints, not the pulleys, and is there a good way to support those joints whilst I'm climbing as I strengthen them?
