The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Hand-over-hand rope pull

    Gang,

    What can I do to simulate a hand-over-hand rope pull?

    I can probably rig something up and pull the jeep around, what's the preferred diameter? I assume it's regular manilla rope, typically.

    Thoughts?

    I've used the sled before with normal rope.

    Using your Jeep is probably better, but I mention this as an alternative because you might have a time when you are training alone.

    I don't have access to a sled. I'd build one, but I don't have access to pavement either

    you can use a sled on grass, makes it tougher to pull actually.

    I've used 2" manila rope, because that is what I have. Worked fine, but im sure smaller diameter rope would work too.

    My friend built me a tire sled with a few pieces of hardware.

    Let me know if you want the specs.
