Ive decided to add rope climbs to my regular conditioning routine(i believe my rope is about 18-20ft). My short term goal is to build up to 3 sets, up and down the rope with no break or pause at the bottom, using arms only. Long term goals would include 5 sets no pause or break and/or 10-15 sets with a 30 second to a minute break in-between. Most of the time when people climb ropes its once or twice as a part of an overall circut routine but has anyone else used ropes as a major exercise like im planning to do? If so where you pleased with the results? I think this could drastically increase grip and upper body strength. Do you guys feel this is a worthwhile endeavour?
