Tip of the day


So with the new ropes come new injuries. Most notably is the rope burn. There are a couple of ways to take care of this. Super sexy long striped socks are one way (to get laughed at.) My favorite is the Mc David thigh wrap. It has velcro and will go around your calf. You can yank it off when done with rope climbs and the material is thick enough to completely insulate your leg. They aren't too expensive either. Should you get a rope burn, treat it like a cut and alcohol or peroxide it. Carry on.

Rope burns? OK, who's pretending the ropes are fireman poles?

Brandon, well said, I was going to mention that if you ascend and descend using your feet to stand on the rope you should be able to avoid any rope burns, but may lose a little bit off of the lateral aspect of the arch of your shoe on your dominant side.... At least that is what happens to me!
