My phone just came out with a new update that allows for the capture of video! Which is cool because I can shoot a video and upload it pretty quickly and easily. So today while at my gymnastics club, I handed one of the girls my phone and let her record me doing a little rope climbing.

I AGREE


I LOVE rope climbing. I wish I had a rope like this one at home. Mine is all well and good, but it's only 1 1/4 inch thick and is made of nylon. So grip strength is a major challenge with it. These kinds of ropes cost a pretty penny anywhere I've seen them on-line, so I'm glad I've got the gymnastics club to play around with it.

I can actually get about 2/3rds the way up in a pretty good L-Sit and thought about doing that. Then I though, people are gonna wanna see ya get to the top! And you gotta give the people what they want!!

First day I tried this rope out I asked one of the coach, "Can I try the rope." It was kinda off limits because they don't want anyone getting hurt. He said, "Sure, but only if you can climb it without using your feet."

He though that would deter me.

P.S. I weigh about 190lbs right now if you're curious.

The bright colors, kids painting and little girl getting a drink of water in the background does kinda detract from the manliness though, doesn't it. Come one Greg, you can be honest with me. I can take it.

Good job. Now you need a pegboard, too. To me, they are the same fun as rope-climbing if they are the square type (6 X 6 holes?) that let you walk all over the wall up high.

You were nice and steady on your one arm holds (while changing hands) up there.

I need to get me a peg board. I'd like to have that and a climbing wall. My plan for this summer is to move my pull-up sled outside and get a place where I have three ropes side by side, a climbing wall and some gymnastics rings. As it is, I can't really train with any friends because my room is WAY to small, so it's time to move my operation outside!
