Danny Watson is only one man, but what a hell of a man! The (nearly) Ginger Ninja can climb a 15ft rope 156 times in an hour, now that is a serious feat! Nothing to do with this post (it’s all mainly bollocks of course), but he seems to do something to punish himself for a significant period of time once every 2 - 3 years, all to raise huge amounts of money for charity of course.
Now, the importance of this is technique focused…there is literally no way that he would’ve been able to do so with poor technique, not a chance in hell. As he states, rope climbing is all about legs, “legs and feet”. “And abs!”
Today’s WoD was a great example of how technique always wins. And, with that in mind, keep your eyes peeled for a new class coming soon…
Ps. If you want to laugh until you cry, ask Danny to tell you the story of the competition he attempted to compete in the weekend following the rope climbing record, and the Toes To Bar workout within that comp.
Pps. Many moons ago, Danny was a Coach at the gym, is one hell of a guy and I miss him everyday.
