Beastmaker Training App 4+
Designed for iPhone
This application is a sidekick to the beastmaker 1000 and 2000. It has been designed to assist the user into gradually getting stronger on a fingerboard. The app does this by way of prewritten workouts which are often general and aim to improve all trainable grips on the board. Some are specific (2000 series only at the moment) which aim to improve, sloper strength, pocket strength and crimp strength.
There is also a new custom workout program fully adjustable and includes the 1000,2000 and micros, so if you have your own hang regime and different timings then that is all programmable and can be saved.
Both the workouts and custom timer now record hang contraction time (time spent actually hanging off the board) We recommend most users get up to around 20:00 minutes on this clock whilst doing their workouts.
On the Workout screen after you've selected your work out it is now possible to adjust set and hang times. Users who are only finger boarding and are having a rest day prior to and after training may wish to do up to 3 sets and 7 hangs. Other users may prefer to go for 2 sets and 6 hangs, this is what we'd consider an average and more suited to people doing additional types of training.
Please note the grades for the workouts aren't actually meant to relate to anything other than themselves. E.G. 5c is easier than 6a but harder than 5b. If you find 5a hard on the 1000, use a weight removal technique such as putting one foot on a chair in front of the board or using a pulley with weights on. More advice on this and other things are available in the general advice section on the Workout Ratings page.
To record your hangs press the record button (red circle icon) whilst resting. The Workout Ratings function is much improved and should now be a really useful training aid which records gradual progress and improvement.
Fingerboard gains take time, remember to warm up thoroughly and move on to more difficult hangs at a slightly slower pace than you think you should to give pulleys time to catch up with muscles. For example 10% strength gains over a year is brilliant improvement. 5% is still effective training.
Best of luck with the training, happy hanging and we hope this helps with the motivation.

Ratings and Reviews
For god sake let us turn off the sound
Awesome app when it comes to work outs. Love having the timer and the visuals for the holds and such, I’ve seen a huge improvement in my climbing ability since using the BeastMaker, when I started I couldn’t make it through the first workout (was leading 5.10 at that point) now I’m into high reps of the 3rd workout and have started leading 5.11’s within months without using a gym, just outdoor and this badboy, great board, good app!
BE WARE: if you like to listen to music, or a podcast, or anything to keep your mind engaged while you workout. . . this app will severely disappoint. There is no setting to turn the sound off so it will interrupt anything else you are playing from your phone. Super bummer in my book but maybe that’s just me.
Good app! Easy to use with their hang boards. Sometimes pausing a workout and skipping hangs messes up the order of hangs and it redoes a hang or skips too far forward. Also would like a grip definition page where each grip is explained in detail with tips and tricks. It has the grips at the bottom of the page but I have no clue what they are without looking it up on their website-who wants to stop their workout to look this up? And the diagram doesn't show it too well. Overall good app just need to add a grip definition page!
Love the upgrade
I’m pretty stubborn about updating my apps, but in this case I wish I did it months ago. This new upgrade is great! My only complaint about the app is that any time I’m starting to hang again after taking time off for work I’m too weak to do the easiest grade. Not a huge deal - I just go to custom workout and write my hangs on a piece of paper, but it would be nice to get a beginner workout or two on the main list. Also another sweet upgrade would be custom workouts where you can choose from the list of exercises instead of just the time/reps/etc.
All in all a worthy app to get if you own a BeastMaker hangboard
