WODdoc Episode 174 Project365: Rope Climbing Technique: Part 3

Ok so we are going to wrap up this rope climbing series we started in the beginning of the week. We covered technique, we covered hand and core strength, and now we are covering foot strength. Just like in other areas of lifting, like olympic lifting, we can improve and strengthen the overall movement by breaking it down and doing pieces of it. We refer to this as accessory work. ┬áToday’s accessory work is rope squats. We use these because it strengthens our foot cinching ability and lets us get more comfortable standing with our legs rather then pulling with our arms. Try them out and let me know what you think.

Today’s WODdocket:

1. 3 Sets x 5-8 reps Rope Squats as shown in today’s video.
