Rope Climb Guide

Main Muscle: Lats

  1. Grab the rope with both hands above your head. Pull down on the rope as you take a small jump.
  2. Wrap the rope around one leg, using your feet to pinch the rope. Reach up as high as possible with your arms, gripping the rope tightly.
  3. Release the rope from your feet as you pull yourself up with your arms, bringing your knees towards your chest.
  4. Resecure your feet on the rope, and then stand up to take another high hold on the rope. Continue until you reach the top of the rope.
  5. To lower yourself, loosen the grip of your feet on the rope as you slide down using a hand over hand motion.

Oct 13, 2012 3:46 PM: But I suggest not to use legs a bit in this. That's wrong!! Stuckin rope in your legs is clear cheatin.
According to our traditional Indian technique, there is not any key role of legs here nor while goin up neither in comin down. Yes, a person can bend his legs a little and then lift his knees...+See More
