Wisdom of the Week- Rope Pull-Ups

Hey hey!! We are closing out the rope climb series with a GREAT drill to strengthen your pull. Even though the rope climb is primarily a LEG exercise (as discussed in previous weeks!!), you still need serious pulling strength to support your body weight and help with efficiency and speed, especially as you fatigue.

From a seated position, pull yourself up the rope to chest height (or as high as you can), and lower down WITH CONTROL. The goal is to hold an L-sit during this drill, but a scaling option is to bend your knees during the exercise. Do sets of these as accessory work, or use it in a WOD as a rope climb scale. Good luck, work hard, and HAVE FUN!
