It just so happens that one of those guys happened to be Brooks Kubik, that’s right, Mr. Dinosaur Training himself. Five minutes before I sent out the email announcing that we now had climbing ropes available, Brooks had just picked up the phone book and was leafing through it to see if anyone in his area had climbing ropes for sale… It was at that exact moment when he looked up at his computer screen and there was our email. He grabbed the phone and dialed right away.
(Yes, that is a true story and you can ask Brooks if you don’t believe me.) Anyhow, Brooks was like a kid in a candy store and we got him hooked up with exactly the kind of ropes he was looking for as well as the hardware to hang it properly. The ropes arrived late last week and here is the result:

Had my first workout with the ropes last night. What an awesome addition to anyone’s training program! With a little bit of creativity, you can work your entire upper body into the ground with these babies. By the end of the workout, my fingers were numb, and the muscular soreness kicked in within a couple of hours.
The ropes allow you to do things that are impossible with any other type of equipment. They can take anyone to a new level of grip, arm and upper body strength, and I can’t think of a better tool for athletes who need a crushing grip. Wrestling and football coaches ought to be ordering ropes by the dozen. Ditto for martial artists, arm wrestlers, climbers and the guys who are working on those Ironmind grippers. As you are well aware, grip training is a must for any serious lifter, and using ropes is one of the best ways to build crushing strength super fast…everyone should give them a try. I’m having some ferocious training sessions with the new ropes. They definitely deserve a place in a dino’s training program.
I wish we’d known about these when I was a high school wrestler. Thanks for making these available to the strength training community.”
