How to traverse a rope

Video Tutorial

Struggling with this obstacle? Check out this video which shows you my technique to safely and quickly complete it.

With all the techniques I use, I'm always looking to use my largest muscle groups (legs) rather than just my arms. If you can take anything away from our videos, let it be this question - 'how can I use my biggest muscles to complete it?'

I hope you found this useful. If you interested in booking a technique master class with me, please click here to check out my master classes.

This was shot and produced by our friends at Mudstacle, the hub of obstacle racing news, community, advice and all round good guys! To find out more, click here
