Horizontal rope climb exercises

What a fun great way to build usable bodyweight strength, stability, and balance by practicing various climbs and pulls on a horizontal suspended rope. With a lot of upper body strength, the lower body does come into play to balance and stabilize yourself while scaling across the rope. Mimic obstacle course challenges by scaling above or below the ropes. Adds new dimension to pull-ups, hangs, and holds with the grip strength and skills needed to stabilize the rope while performing an exercise. Give the exercises a try with the horizontal climbing rope:

  • Horizontal climb under rope with feet
  • Hand over hand climb without feet
  • Horizontal climb on top of rope
  • Under rope lateral climb with hands
  • Under rope lateral climb with legs and hands
  • Pull-ups
  • Muscle-ups
  • Hanging holds
