I am tired of hearing about guys who “can’t” do rope climbing because they don’t have the ceiling space. You simply don’t need twenty foot ceilings to work rope climbing. I have many customers who hang a rope off their rafters, in their standard garage and practice rope climbing. The dedicated ones even get to the point of doing “Touch’N Go” style climbing in an L-Sit. One guy started off weighing 300 pounds and not able to hang from a chin-up bar. A hundred pounds of bodyweight down the drain and he is doing one hand chins and those “Touch’N Go” Climbs.
If you can’t do a chin-up, start with any kind of pulling/rowing exercises on our Rack Ropes and assisted chins and pull-ups. You will be ripping out 10 dead hang pull-ups in a hurry. You just have to dedicate yourself. You may have to lose some weight at the same time. You know what to do. Dedicate yourself. The first time you hit ten reps, everyone will see that accomplishment in the way you walk. It’s up to you.
