Do you need to do the rope climb in gym? Or do you just want to get better at climbing a rope for fun or exercise? Follow these instructions and with some care and concentration, you’ll be making your way up the rope in no time.
1 – Grab the rope with both hands above your head.
2 – Pull down on the rope while jumping a bit and you will be lifted into the air.
3 – Wrap the rope around one leg, and use your feet to pinch the rope, thus anchoring yourself.
4 – Reach up as high as possible with your arms (some say no higher than your nose), and grip the rope tightly.
5 – Release the rope from your feet. Using your abdominals, bring your knees up to your chest. Re-secure your feet on the rope.
6 – Stand up with your legs, and re-reach as high as possible with your arms.
7 – Repeat the inch-worm process until the top of the rope has been reached.
8 – Loosen the grip of your feet on the rope when coming down. Support your weight evenly between your feet and hands, slide your feet down and place hand-over-hand on the way down.
