Today, among other things, we are going to be working on Rope Climbs. While you may think, the Rope Climb was just an exercise used to torture kids in gym class, it’s actually an important skill to have for survival. 

Sure, nobody plans to be stuck on a cliff or down in a hole, however, it sure would be nice to know how to climb a rope if there was one that could get you to safety! 

Today we are going to teach you the skill of climbing a rope by using your feet to hold on. It’s very important to wear long socks, pants, or even shin guards to prevent rope burn which will happen if you don’t cover your shins. 

Property footwork can be learned, grip strength has to be built, with exercises like the farmers carry we did last week, pull ups, and pretty much anything we do with a barbell or dumbbell. 

This is also an important skill to practice. Just because we don’t do them in class as often doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still work on them. If you ever need help practicing rope climbs, grab a Coach and get ready to climb. 

It’s going to be a GREAT week, so start it off right at WildFire CrossFit!
