Rope Climbs and Their Benefits

Rope climbs have tremendous benefits.

For athletes, the combination of increased grip and muscle strength, balance, and muscular endurance make rope climbs a true test of overall fitness. 

Rope climbs are the perfect exercise to achieve these things.

Replace your traditional end-of-workout cardio, with some rope climbs. These muscle-building moves to bring your fitness to brand new heights. 

Here is a personal favourite finisher for my clients who enjoy the feeling of being metabolically fatigues at the end of training sessions:

3 rope climbs
25 metre Prowler Push
2 rope climbs 2
25 metre prowler push
1 rope climb 
25 metre prowler push

Rest 2 minutes and repeat x 3
