Testing My New Climbing Rope

In the park playing around:
Rope climbing is an awesome upper body workout, with extra grip emphasis those of us who are also massage therapists appreciate.

I made the rope from an old 11mm rock climbing rope, with three long pieces folded in the center to form a bight at the top.  I spent a long time trying to twist the strands, then figured out it would work just fine to braid them.  Come train in the park and we'll put the "fun" in functional!

  1. That looks like a great way to exercise and have fun at the same time. I'll have to try that out, looks like a great arm workout.
