    Grip rope firmly with both hands, clamp rope betweenfront of one leg and the rear of another. pull yourself upwards with hands and when reaching upwards again, clamp the legs together and repeat.
    easier demonstrated....

    I find the easiest way to climb a rope is to pul up, then hav the rope from the outside of one leg, go under the in-step and over the bridge of the 2nd foot. This creates a "step" so you can move hands higher to repeat this same action. A rope in the gym can be scaled pretty damn sharpish if you got the right technique so try it out first. Works well for me :D any dramas drop me a bombshell. Njoy the brief too.... Devo

    ive tried that. I dont know if its because Im wearing the wrong sort of trainer or not bu tit just isnt happening as everytime I go to pull myself up, the rope moves from my leg.

    my normal method is to jusst climb the thing with arms alone... but is quite hard and can only really be done if one can do more then about 6 pullups.

    Somehow I dont think I'll be able to do that method. Its a nightmare.....The more I try to tell myself Im gonna do it the more I loose my grip.

    I can do a dozen pull-ups but I can't climb a rope using hands only - I don't have the grip in my hands! Probably early onset arthritis!
