Rope Undulation

Has anyone done this? My gym just got a couple sets of ropes and while it looks like it could help for hockey, I'm just wondering how this works for a workout and off-ice training. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I assume it'd have a similar benefit to the pull up or chin up but with slightly different muscles and a lot of core. Body control would probably be another benefit as well.

my bad. i assumed climbing straight up a rope. that looks much more effective for a hockey benefit.

if you don't have two long ropes nor the space, jumping rope should give you something similar.

Speaking of functional workouts, I'm picking up a kettlebell this weekend, should be fun. I need to build up some core and back strength and the swings and cleans look perfect for hockey.

Form is everything with kettlebells, so keep that first in mind. Great workout. Wait till you see what that does for your grip strength also.

and just wait till you get the blisters. my hands are trashed from working construction, but when I first started with the kbells around 7 years ago that really destroyed them.

I see a few guys do that at the gym. It's pretty tough. Also attaching a weight to the end of a rope and pulling it, good stuff.

I'm kinda getting into the Rocky IV style workouts now, they're more bad ass.

At my gym they also just installed a rope machine, it's pretty cool. I just put the tension to the highest level and go to town. It's rough after a while.

That's what I've read...my grip is already pretty strong from years of drumming, but my back/core are super weak. I'm getting a book/DVD on it and will probably end up taking a class too.

I'm not ripping on it by any means but it's kind of funny they have rope machines instead of just ropes.

lol, we have both at my gym. I guess since the people using the ropes take too much space, they decided to get a machine, idk.

Just that American need to over-complicate things, like having a stair master instead of going up and down stairs

Check out http://www.artofstrength.com/ for both rope workouts and kettlebells. I have this Kettlebell DVD (trailer) and highly recommend it.

it keeps the Heart rate up (rope work) so it gets used in tabata protocols quite often, and also used in circuit training too.

For those that have done this, how would you rate the effectiveness and benefit of it?

I have never done this but my guess would be that if Ove uses this as part of his routine, there must be some serious benefits.

Looks like it'd be a pretty intense workout and good functional strength. These kinds of things are usually a lot more useful than isolated weight lifts.
