With a background in anatomy and physiology and an insatiable curiosity to understand the challenges I experienced when climbing, I eventually came to understand that the way I was climbing - doing multiple pull-ups - was preventing the development of my grip strength. I was also using more of the flexor muscles in my forearms, than the extensors and this muscle imbalance was causing the tendonitis. Fortunately, I knew how to develop the muscles I needed and I learned how to climb differently. Within a few weeks, I was able to get back to climbing at my best.
What would your performance look like if you climbed with better technique?
