What are the health benefits of using a gym climbing rope?
It can increase strength, cardiovascular fitness and weight-loss. The muscles used are extensive and include: fingers, forearms, back, shoulders, core and legs.
How do I safely use a climbing rope?
The strength required to climb vertically using only your arms can take some time to build. However, there are ways you can safely use it as you work up to this goal. One such way is the ‘S-Loop’, which involves wrapping the bottom of the rope around one leg, essentially enabling you to stand using that leg and taking some of the strain off your upper body.
What is the best diameter for climbing?
As a general rule, the thinner something is the easier it is to grip. If you are new to this exercise, you might want to start with the 24mm. The advantage of a bigger diameter is that it focuses on grip strength and is more difficult so if you’re more experienced, we would recommend the 32mm or 36mm options.
Why is Synthetic Hemp suitable for outdoor use?
Synthetic Hemp is rot, UV and abrasion resistant. As such it will resist elemental factors that would normally degrade natural fibre alternatives. As a result, it will last longer outdoors.
