What are the health benefits of using a gym climbing rope?
It can increase strength, cardiovascular fitness and weight-loss. The muscles used 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. For example, 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 the rope, the easier it is to grip. If you’re new to this, start with the 28mm. The 36mm diameter will place more focus on grip strength and is more difficult. We recommend this option, if you’re more experienced.
Why is Synthetic Hemp suitable for outdoor use?
Synthetic Hemp is rot, UV and abrasion resistant. It will resist elemental factors that would normally degrade natural fibre alternatives and will last longer outdoors.
