Joe, great job! And no feet for extra leverage! It would be interesting to see how far you could really go, since a 20 foot climb isn't a problem.

Stick with 20 (ish - good enough). Go for reps, speed, or L's or sumptin. Nobody does 40 unless they can't measure or are unwisely foolish. A 20 foot drop may injure - a 40 foot drop will injure, or worse. Again, great job. Don't want to lose you.

And a pegboard. Consider that. I loved pegboarding in jr. high.

Great job Joe. I was suitably impressed. That is functional fitness at it's best. Russ Warner, the physique photographer got into the post WWII bodybuilding scene after he watched marines from his unit drown. The transport they were supposed to get on to carry them to the beach was shot out from under them and some couldn't hang on to the ladder roping and slid into the water never to surface again. He swore that would never be him.

By the way Joe, I know you can't be really using John's methods to develop that kind of strength. Tell the truth, you are really doing Cross Fit or one of Ross E.'s progams, aren't you?

Too, and I am being serious this time. Shuck the baggy clothes. I am not saying wear skin tight clothes, but you can wear stuff now that will be flattering of your physique. The baggies are a mental holdover from the fat days. You have a build you can be proud of.

Yeah! Tommy Bahama all the way!

Uh, uh oh, might be heading for another shirt disaster.

Never mind.

Beyond Joe's impressive climbing, I hope folks are inspired to use some dangling rope to "monkey around" with a variety of isometrics & isotonics . Double your pleasure/pain with 2 adjacent dangling ropes. If you tie Bowline knots the ropes can function as gymnastic rings.

Well Joe,

Since I have a whole closet full of black and navy blue tee-shirts, I'd have to say that I really like your tee-shirt in your avatar!

I'd love to do a rematch, I think I can take Caleb this time!! Joe, what do you say? We could include a 1 set max bodyweight improvement option.

Be honest Greg, what you're really jealous of is my Eagle staff and the remarkable similarities between it's beak and my nose!

Jon, we'll see here in a few months. I just did another friendly competition with someone just before I did this one and I'm a little burnt out of competitions. I'm shifting my focus from physical transformations to more strength building.

It was about this time two years ago that I first picked up The Miracle 7, at that time I could barley do one chin. Since then I've been working on my "transformation". Now it being 2 years and being able to climb a rope with no sweat, I think it's a pretty good capper to the transformation period of my training. Time to shift focus, at least for a bit.

-Joe
