Weighted Rope Climbs
It seems a little over the top that I always talk about how much stuff hurts, and perhaps it is just that I am soft and weak… but climbing our particular ropes with 70 odd pounds dangling between ones legs really hurts. Since getting the partial climb with the 70 I have gone back and gotten all the way to the top, but that isn’t coming out as a video until I can put it in as the warm-up to climbing with the 88lb kb afterwards. As to training this, I would recommend that people use a bunch of chalk, get a good dipping belt, and start small. If a rope climb isn’t effortless than doing this with added weight can be brutal, especially when you know you really can’t fail with it.
