Rope climbing exercises and workouts are awesome for total body strength and fatloss. A rope is also a very affordable way to find out if a suspension trainer is a good fit for your workouts.
All you need to do is go down to the hardware store and buy a $3 weight bearing hook then attach that hook to a weight bearing beam in your ceiling. Then just thread your rope through the hook and get to work with bodyweight rows, rope climbs, and rope swings like Dominik of NaturTraining demos in the video below.
You can also take your rope out to a park and hang it over a tree or over those pullup bars and try the same rope exercises outdoors.
In the video Dominik shows a variety of progressions that work for beginners and the more advanced. It takes a few minutes for him to get into the exercises but totally worth the wait.
Now I'm off to buy some rope to try this out. I'll be filming a few rope exercises as part of my suspension trainer solutions post coming soon.
