On some days I don't feel like doing a long workout on my fingerboard and I limit myself to a simple training cycle on four types of holds: medium crimpers, slopers, small crimpers and two finger pockets.
The principle is really straightforward - hang 20 seconds on the holds (dead hang), rest 10 seconds, hang another 20 seconds, rest another 10, etc. Do this for five minutes on each type of hold and you will get pretty pumped. If you feel the work load is easily manageable, you can add extra effort to it by doing some pull-ups while you're hanging.
I usually get too pumped by minute three or four and I simply cannot grasp the holds anymore...
Don't forget to stretch and massage your forearm muscles after the workout.
