Gymnastics Movements – Rope Climbs | Strength Exercises

The Rope Climb has become a functional fitness as well as an obstacle and adventure course staple – but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

It’s important to find the most efficient way to ascend in order to save spending all your upper body strength at once.

Your rope climb technique will be improved significantly by using the feet in what is called the “J Hook Foot Clamp”.

See how to master this technique with the team at Fitness Institute!

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.

Disclaimer: Note that many gyms are not insured for rope climbs. Please check with your gym and Personal Trainer or Gymnastics Coach before attempting.
