Have you ever used the Rope Trainer? Are you doing the same one or two exercise movements each time you use it? Are you wondering muscles you're using when doing one of the movements? Try one of these 5 Rope Trainer exercises during your next workout at the DAHLC:
Vertical Pulldown: Sitting on the bench, close to the rope, pull down on the rope, one arm after the other. (Targeting your shoulders, arms, upper back, and lats).
Vertical Pullup: Sitting on the bench, close to the rope, pull up on the rope, one arm after the other. (Targeting your shoulders, arms, and upper back).
Bicep Lift: Using one or both arms, pull up on rope using both biceps while standing upright. (Targeting your biceps and forearms).
Tricep Pull: Keeping body upright, bend arms at the elbows and pull down on the rope. (Targeting your triceps, forearms, and middle back).
Seated Diagonal Pull: With rope carriage in middle position, sit further back on the bench, keep upper body straight and pull one arm after the other. Emphasize core by twisting. For a longer stroke, set carriage to lowest position. (Targeting your shoulders, arms, upper and middle back, lats, and abdominal muscles)
