Good Bite

 In WOD

WOD 9/25/12

Rope Climb Skill Work 10-15 minutes – Practice getting a good “bite” on the rope with your feet and supporting yourself with your legs. Reach up to with your arms and hang while you pull your legs up to find the next “bite” with your feet higher on the rope. In this way you climb pushing off the bite with your feet rather than climbing by pulling yourself up with your arms. Once you learn to get a good grip with your feet and pushing through your legs then climbing the rope is much easier. Just ask Rich Froning from 2010.

    Rope climbs were a breeze for the first time. I must admit, I studied the women in the games last night to prep for that skill.
